Safari #2: Get Green and Relax

When asked which season is the best, most Bostonians will tell you without hesitation that it's Spring. With the return of warm temperatures, low humidity and baseball, everyone has a slight "spring" in their step. And while some of us may sniffle and sneeze with all of the loveliness that the new season brings, it still won't keep us away from all the greenery that Boston has to offer.

For your next safari, put a picnic together (bought or made) and head out to enjoy a green spot. While there are an endless number of more public green spaces (like the Boston Common and Public Garden), try shooting for something a little less off the beaten path. Depending on where you are in the city, try any of these locations (and bring Fido along too):

--Commonwealth Avenue Mall (Commonwealth Avenue in Back Bay - just walk down the tree lined middle and check out all of the statues/monuments)
--Arnold Arboretum (Forest Hills Stop on the Orange Line)
--Jamaica Pond (Stony Brook Stop on the Orange Line or the #39 bus from Copley)
--Beaconsfield Park (Beaconsfield T stop off of the Green Line D Outbound)
--Outlook Park (at the top of Summit Ave between Brighton and Brookline)
--Chestnut Hill Reservoir (one lap around is 1.6 miles - get some exercise while you're at it!)
