You don’t expect to discover a tunnel of trees right in the heart of a major city. However, that’s exactly where you’ll find the Commonwealth Avenue Mall, a tree-lined walkway that links the Public Gardens to rest of the Emerald Necklace. Inspired by the grand boulevards of France, this 32-acre alley of trees is a magical place to visit in any season.
