Why You’ll Love PhotoWalks of Boston
PhotoWalks has six tours to choose from, each featuring a special part of Boston.
The Back Bay Photo Tour is a fan favorite. You’ll meet at Copley Square, and proceed down Commonwealth Avenue towards some of the most inspiring architecture in the area. Some highlights include Trinity Church, the John Hancock Tower and the Boston Public Library.
If you want to go back in time, try the Beacon Hill Photo Tour. You’ll explore one of the prettiest neighborhoods in Boston. The streets are lined in cobblestone, with brick buildings rising above. Unique details, like window flower boxes and vintage door knockers will be your muse.
If you want to learn just as much about the American Revolution as you want to learn about photography, choose the Freedom Trail Photo Tour. You’ll follow the path of the Sons of Liberty, photographing some of the nation’s most important historical sites along the way.
The North End Photo Tour also includes some of the sites along the Freedom Trail. It also gives you the chance to photograph a well-known area known as an immigration haven throughout history.
Nature lovers will delight in the Public Gardens and Esplanade Photo Tour. This route lets you venture through the parks, snapping shots of flowers, fountains, statues and iconic Boston attractions, like the Swan Boats and the Cambridge skyline.
On a warm, sunny day, there’s no better tour than the Boston Waterfront Photo Tour. You’ll get great photographs of Boston Harbor, and all the harbor side haunts that provide the city with its historical charm.
All of the tours come with a free e-booklet, PhotoWalks Guide to Creative Photography, so you can reference it whenever creativity strikes. Don’t forget to bring your camera!
