In Boston’s Public Garden you should always be on guard to Make Way for Ducklings!
The New York Times describes Robert McCloskey’s Caldecott Medal-winning book as “one of the merriest picture books ever.” It follows the tale of Mr. and Mrs. Mallard as they search for a place to call home for their new family. They land upon an island in the lagoon at the Public Garden’s of Boston.
The bronze sculptures depict Mrs. Mallard and her 8 ducklings as they cross the park. Seeing them will most definitely bring a smile to your face. Being nearly life-sized you’d think they be tricky to find, however, all you need to do is search for the group of giggling children and happy adults near the gate at the corner of Beacon Street and Charles Street.
As a side note, located at 44 Charles Street in Beacon Hill, just a few block from the ducklings is The Paramount. It’s a Boston favorite and has been serving up delicious food since 1937. It’s a small place and the line typically stretches out the door but it moves quickly and it is worth the wait. Such a charming place to enjoy a great breakfast before or after your visit with the ducklings!
