1. The Massachusetts state flower is a small flower known as the mayflower, which is also known as "epigaea repens" and "trailing arbutus." If you are caught digging one up in Massachusetts, expect to pay a $50 fine!
2. The Glass Flowers gallery located in the Harvard Museum of Natural History, is part of a collection of 3,000 models of 830 species of plants and flowers, meticulously handcrafted from glass. Created from 1887 to 1936 by artists Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka, the realistic crafting method was kept secret, so this collection is the only one of its kind in the world.
3. The Emerald Necklace Conservancy is a 1,100 acre chain of parks linked by roads and waterways through Boston and Brookline, Massachusetts. From Boston Common to Franklin Park, the length of the park system is seven miles by foot, and contains over half of Boston's parks.

In addition to the amazing attractions we listed in the Boston Flowers & Plants section, Boston has some of America's most cherished attractions. Boston locals love their sports teams which makes Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox, one of the top attractions for visitors and locals alike. The Musem of Fine Arts, Boston is one the best art museums in the U.S. including art from all over the world, with an especially robust Americas art section. One of the paths most traveled in Boston is The Freedom Trail spanning 2.5 miles in a red-lined route which leads you to 16 historically significant landmarks in American history. Literally located on a boat, "float" into the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum and learn all about colonial America and "the destruction of the tea in Boston" (as labeled by John Adams) on December 16, 1773.
For a glimpse of local Boston life, check out some of their best areas: Beacon Hill, Harvard Square, Copely Square, Fenway Park, Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Sam Adams Brewery, and Boston Harbor. Boston's neighboring cities like Brighton, Cambridge, Allston, Newton, and Watertown are also enjoyable places to visit.
