Bartlett Arboretum and Gardens
For those looking to slow down a little and appreciate nature’s beauty, Bartlett is the perfect place to stop. It’s hard to imagine that a busy metropolitan city sits just outside this lush, green oasis. Furry four-legged friends are allowed to investigate the 93 acres (38ha), including 12 gardens, and you can take a self-guided audiovisual tour by downloading Bartlett’s app. Miles of trails go past flowing rivers, manicured gardens and wetlands. It’s open to the public every day of the year, and admission is free unless you’re attending a special event or summer concert.
