The Public Garden is the perfect backdrop for a photoshoot! Boasting views of Boston’s iconic skyscrapers such as Hancock Tower. Stroll along the pathways and snap a pic along the bridge, or with a swan boat! When you take a trip to the Public Garden it is impossible not to walk away with an enviable insta!

  1. Acorn Street

Acorn Street: known as Boston’s most photographed street, and for good reason. This quaint cobblestone street is just bursting with charm. Take a shot against the red brick houses and seasonally changing window boxes! Our advice is to ditch the heels for this one ladies!

Although you might want to avoid the Boston Public Library for a photoshoot during final exams week, the Public Library is one of our favorite places to grab an artsy shot to spice up your feed. With its high arched ceilings and lines of tiny green desk lamps, Bates Hall is just begging to be featured on your Instagram. On a quiet afternoon this is a great place to sit and get some work done, even if it just means editing the amazing picture you just took! An added bonus is the adorable afternoon tea offered in the BPL’sCourtyard Restaurant.

Home to some of Boston’s most unique art installations is Dewey Square, a park along the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway. The current mural, titled Spaces of Hope, by Mehdi Ghadyanloo, is the fifth public art installation on the Greenway wall in Dewey Square Park. But this mural isn’t the only interesting thing your lens will be drawn to, a farmers market inhabits the Greenway on Tuesdays and Thursdays from May through November featuring all sorts of delectable locally sourced goodies. But wait the fun doesn’t stop there, the square also hosts weekly block parties on Thursday nights featuring music and refreshments.

The Reflecting Pool at The Christian Science Center offers views of the city skyline with a built in mirror effect! When you look at the pool from a distance you experience an interesting optical illusion, it appears as though people are walking on water! Don’t be fooled though, swimming is strictly prohibited. The pool is currently being revamped to reduce the water volume, with plans for a black granite bottom, we are excited to see what’s to come, including Boston’s tallest residential building just a few steps away, courtesy of the Four Seasons at One Dalton.

  1. Fenway Park

An oldie but a goodie! Fenway is the oldest park in MLB but that only adds to its charm. Whether you are seeing a Red Sox game or attending a summer concert Fenway is nothing short of picturesque. Grab yourself a cold one and a classic Fenway frank and you have the dream food insta in the making #FoodInTheAir (just be sure to get the Green Monster in there!)

  1. Charles River Esplanade

A photo along the Charles provides a quintessentially Boston snap. Whether you are going for a run along the Charles or just strolling along for a leisurely afternoon walk, the esplanade provides beautiful sights of the cityscape, not to mention the endless #SunsetGram shots you can collect here. Hit up the esplanade in the fall for foliage like no other or attend the Head of the Charles Regatta to watch the races and the local New Englanders in their fall fashions!

If you are interested purely in the view then theSkywalk Observatory may be more your style, boasting a view of Boston from 50 stories up, on a clear day you can see up to 100 miles away.
