A staple of Boston suburbia, Walden Pond is swimmable, runnable, and overall, beachable. There is a small roped-off shallow section with lifeguard on duty, but the rest of the pond is also open to the public. There is a parking fee that members can get discounted. Somewhat crowded on weekends and during popular hours (mostly afternoons).
If you’re not so into the beach side of things, you can also visit Henry David Thoreau’s house in the woods near the pond. His work, Walden, describes his time living at Walden Pond, and if you have read his writing it’s a great experience to visit the actual place he was writing from.
We hope you’re as excited as we are for the opening of The Godfrey Hotel Boston this fall. We are working hard with our talented team focused on the construction, interior and exterior design, marketing and more to make the opening of our hotel a success. We’re happy to share updates along the way, including a handful of interior renderings that give you a virtual sneak peek into our hotel.
First, when you walk into our hotel, one of the first things you’ll notice is our front desk in the lobby. We want the lobby to feel welcoming and peaceful, just as the exact meaning of what The Godfrey stands for. Below is a rendering of our front desk and even more important will be the welcoming team members who help our guests upon arrival and checkout. We believe each guest should feel an experience of surprise and delight when they arrive.

It is hardly fair to decide amongst these Boston establishments, but here you have five fantastic burrito choices, battling it out for what I deem to be, Boston’s Best Burrito:
Chipotle (Watertown, Downtown Crossing, Brighton (Cleveland Circle), Boston BU West): I love Chipotle because no matter where you happen upon one, their dishes always taste the same – there’s no guessing game about one being better or worse than another location.
