Starting at the Back Bay T station, walk into the Southwest Corridor Park, home to the strollers and joggers of the South End. There are plenty of nooks and crannies to sit and enjoy the greenery. Walk through the park until you reach W. Newton Street. If you're lucky, you may get a chance to see some of the area's creative spark. Look what I found decorating the concrete posts.
At W. Newton Street, turn left and continue walking about one mile until you reach two of the South End's largest parks, Blackstone and Franklin Squares. Ornate fountains compliment these spaces along with trees reaching as far as the eye can see.
If you feel like picnicking, stop at Flour Bakery, located at 1595 Washington Street, for some awesome treats - both savory and sweet. My favorite: the smoked turkey with cheddar and cranberry chutney.
