As you stroll past the elaborate Christian Science Center, it isnt another building you are viewing in the lapping water, but the reflection of the Center in the 670-foot-long pool. Designed in the 1960s by world-renowned architect I.M. Pei the 14-acre plaza has become one of the most visited and noticeable attractions for tourists in Boston.
Visitors can relax on one of the stone benches and reflect on their own thoughts as they watch the reflection of the buildings near by. If you focus on the individuals walking on the other side of the pool, it will appear that they are walking on the water.
If its a hot day, take a leap through the spouting fountain at the far end of the reflecting pool for a cool, refreshing break.
