Does it have to be in Boston? I got engaged in the white mountain region (thus my sn) and it was gorgeous. It was also kind of fun because we stayed at a local B&B that night and we were able to celebrate. It’s a couple hours drive from Boston, but I’d say worth it! This time of year they have awesome waterfalls / flumes from the snowmelt which could be kind of cool.

Given how cold it’s been so far this year it might be a bit tough to find somewhere more spring-like!

@kdlevin:  How about a botanical garden?  Thers probably a nice one there with all the colleges.  Umass (Amherst) has a beautiful one that is not super busy I bet Boston has something like that too.

We got engaged in the Common in the middle of the first snow storm. It’s not spring like right now (for obvious reasons with the snow STILL on the ground) but it always looks pretty.

I love the botanical garden idea, but Boston doesn’t have any public greenhouses that I know of… Tower Hill is beautiful, but outside the city. Another fun place might be the Butterfly Place! They even have a Groupon going on right now for admission. Lol

The Public Garden is really nice in the spring with the willow trees and ponds with swan boats. Lots of flowers. If either of you are into art, the MFA and the Isabella Stewart Gardner museum both have lovely courtyards.

Though it’s not in the most likely location, there is a beautiful and secluded garden on the roof of the Marriott parking garage in Kendall Square! I used to go up there sometimes to read when I lived nearby. There’s almost never anybody up there.

If you feel like making a little drive, the Crane Estate in Ipswich is amazing. Beautiful mansion, exquisite gardens, “avenue” of lawn rolling down to the sea.

Christopher Columbus Park in the North End has a beautiful rose garden that’s enclosed by a wrought iron fence. I have no idea if anything will be in bloom at that time, but I love it.

How about the butterfly garden at the MOS? You can get free MOS tickets from the public library.  I think the butterfly garden is an additional fee, though.

The Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain is supposed to be beautiful.  I know they have a lilac day in May – not sure what will be in bloom.  Cape Cop/Nantucket usual have daffodil festivals in April.  Good luck!

@kdlevin:  Cambridge Common is pretty!! Even with a little snow/bare branches! And there are lovely statues/waterfalls in the Boston Common area!
