Place: Beacon Hill Park

A staple in the park-goer's repertoire, Beacon Hill Park is lovely any time of year for anyone. This being said, springtime is the optimal time to visit. Ducks, crocuses, grassy fields, buskers, bird watchers, a stone bridge and peacocks add to the irresistible pull of the park at this time of year.

The versatility of the park could charm anyone- families love the water park and children's farm, the abundance of grass spaces as well as picnic tables can accommodate any picnic, adventurous or civilized and anyone is sure to be more than satisfied with the many walking trails, which they may or may not have to share with the residing ducks.

I think my favorite part about Beacon Hill Park is how accessible it is, despite it's hidden-away feel. Quite a few bus routes can take you just a short walk away from any of the entrances. Also, its proximity to Douglas St. makes it an easy place to go after a meal or even to bring your food.

One close-by vendor frequented by locals and tourists alike, especially in the spring an summer seasons is the Beacon Drive-In which offers soft serve ice cream and classic burger joint fare, along with coastal twists on favorites, such as the oyster burger (delicious).

Beacon Hill Park is a wonderful place to go and relax and if nothing else, to visit the sweetest baby goats you've ever seen.
