Charles River Esplanade

Boston Bucket List…Entry #2

Continuing my advance on my Boston bucket list, my brother and I decided to walk along the Charles River Esplanade and to check out the Mapparium at the Mary Baker Eddy Library. Unfortunately, the Mapparium did not allow photography of any kind. However, I highly suggest going to see this little hidden gem if you are in the city. It is a spectacular three-story tall globe made of vibrant stain glass. Visitors are able to walk onto a bridge and view the globe from the inside! Because the space is so unique, the acoustics are as well. Trey and I were able to stand on either side of the globe, whisper to one another, yet still hear as if standing next to one other!

We had a leisurely stroll checking out different beauties along the Esplanade including jogging trails, the Hatch Memorial Shell performance stage, playgrounds, and Community Boating.
