Most people visiting Boston are there for its rich history, amazing architecture, and thriving sports scene, but there’s more to this city than meets the eye. If you want to feel like you walked straight into the fairy tale while in the capital of Massachusetts, Kelleher Rose Garden is just the spot for you.

This stunning garden is safely tucked away inside the Back Bay Fens. The Museum of Fine Arts is located just across the street, but some of the city’s main attractions aren’t too far either, including Fenway Park, the home of the Boston Red Sox.

This beautiful spot with a “secret garden” feel has been around since 1930, when noted Boston landscape architect Arthur Shurcliff designed it. One of its most notable attractions is El Desconsol, a marble sculpture that Boston received as a gift from its sister city of Barcelona.

Flower lovers will feel right at home in this rose garden since it covers 15,000 square feet, with over 1,500 roses from 200 different varieties on its grounds. It’s a part of Boston’s chain of parks known as Emerald Necklace, which celebrates the natural beauty of the capital of Massachusetts.
