UrbanAdventures_MAblog.jpg There are only two weekends left to embark on the Urban Adventours Emerald Necklace & Fall Foliage tour. This weekend and next, you can discover Frederick Law Olmsted's famous system of parks on this bicycle tour. From the shaded boulevard on Commonwealth Avenue to the popular shores of Jamaica Pond to the winding paths of the Arnold Arboretum, this chain of gardens, reserves, and open space displays some of the most colorful flora as autumn descends on Boston.
No bike? No worries. The tour includes a bike, helmet, water, and, of course, a friendly and knowledgeable guide. The tour is 2.5-3 hours long and covers 10-12 miles. How better to see the city and its colors -- and all this for only $50! Check out the details.
