Take a walk through the heart of Victorian Boston on this tour of Commonwealth Avenue! Boston's grand boulevard provides an enduringly popular stroll. The tour parallels the 19th century filling and development of the Back Bay from its origin at Arlington Street down the seven blocks along the tree-lined, grassy Mall. See how careful effort over 150 years has preserved the "grandness" of the avenue. Meet your guide at the George Washington statue in the Public Garden, at the corner of Arlington Street & Commonwealth Avenue.
