Spring in Boston is absolutely beautiful. One of the best things about it are the flowers that are planted around the city. When you begin to see tulips, you know it’s finally spring.

And of course, you’ll want to capture all of this majesty on your Instagram

With the flowers blooming, it’s time to know where the most instagrammable spots are in Boston to get the best images.

Boston Public Garden

A spring favorite is the Boston Public Garden AKA Tulip Central (this is not a thing – yet, but it should be). If you want a great shot of the quintessential spring, stop here and enjoy all the beautiful flowers that have been planted. This is a busy spot, so you’ll most likely have to wait to get the picture you want, but once you do, it’ll be worth it.
