Piers Park

Piers Park is a beautifully manicured landscape that was developed along with the East Boston community. It allows easy access to the waterfront and an unobstructed view of downtown Boston. While at the park, take a walk along the 600-foot promenade to one of two pavilions. Here you will enjoy a unique view of the city across the harbor. Bring a blanket, snuggle up with your loved one and watch the sun gently set over the water.

Christopher Columbus Park

This North End waterfront park provides the perfect backdrop for a romantic sunset. Stroll through the park hand in hand, relax on the grass or just appreciate the plants and flowers that might be in bloom. Perhaps take a walk down to the harbor and watch the boats as they sail past. As the sun sets, grab a seat on a bench near the water to take in the spectacular views. Afterwards, continue to gaze at the ocean under the stars to add a little extra romance to your evening.
