AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Boston Common was created in 1634, and has been everything from a place to graze cattle to a stage for the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Pope John Paul II. It slopes down the south face of Beacon Hill below the State House, offering acres of tree-lined paths, broad lawns, ball fields and tennis courts. It’s also utilitarian, crisscrossed by many people with somewhere to go, and there’s a large parking garage underneath its green lawns.
