The Most Romantic Architecture in Boston to Walk By

The gorgeous Christian Science Plaza of Boston.

The gorgeous Christian Science Plaza of Boston: Reflecting pool, dome, magical lights... Ah!

Since my thrilling recent marriage proposal in the Boston Public Garden, I’ve been alert to other romantic spots around Boston. Aaaaand… the winner for #1 most romantic architectural area in Boston is easy: the Christian Science Plaza by the Symphony stop on the Green Line!

Whatever your views may be on Christian Science as a belief system, the Christian Science Plaza will make you happy. Its 14-acre spread of seven diverse and wonderful buildings features a long, smooth reflecting pool, and is a visual and emotional feast to stroll through. Go in the day and see the smooth white dome kissing the cobalt blue sky, or come at night when the golden-lit arches flicker along the water of the reflecting pool.

The Christian Science Plaza is lovely in daytime or night time.

Inside the Mary Baker Eddy Library building in the Plaza, you can even walk through the world! With the Mapparium, you step inside a 28-foot in diameter globe map of the earth. This experience is fabulous… unless, as I was one memorable afternoon, you are inside that echo-filled orb with 15 screaming ninth graders. Just saying.

For all the intriguing things inside the buildings that make up the Christian Science World Headquarters, however, the outside plaza is the biggest gift to Boston. Are you near the Boston area and have a free hour? Stroll through the Christian Science Plaza today and feel the romance!

Boston-lovers, what stories and thoughts do YOU have about the Christian Science Plaza?
