Safari #11: I Roam Around, Around, Around

Well, I'm the type of gal who likes to walk around - and that's exactly what I did today.  With fall temperatures already settling in, there's no better time to head out on safari.  Where to go, you ask?  If you've already visited some of the other green spaces I suggested, head next to the South End and try one of my favorite routes.
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.
      P.S. If you're boots still feel like walking (and it's also a Sunday), head down Harrison Avenue and check out the South End Open Market where you can buy local arts and crafts in one of the most creative spaces around.  More on this in an upcoming post.
