For the past two weeks we’ve been getting back to nature on our Emerald Necklace fall foliage tour. This three-hour tour leaves daily from our shop on Atlantic Ave. and winds its way through some of Boston’s best green spaces. The 15+ mile route is a great way to see parts of the city unknown even to many locals.
The Emerald Necklace is a series of linear parks designed by Fredrick Law Olmstead, the famous landscape architect responsible for Central Park in New York City. The Necklace is over 1,000 acres and includes the Back Bay Fens, Riverway, Olmstead Park, Jamaica Pond, and the Arnold Arboretum. Much of the riding is on wide carriage paths and paved trails. The tour also makes its way along the Charles River, the Boston Commons, and the Southwest Corridor to admire the beautiful fall foliage.
Peak foliage is expected to hit Boston mid-October, so book a tour in the next few weeks to get your yearly fix of leaf peeping. Or stop by the shop to pick up a map or rent a bike and explore the area for yourself!
