If you have to pick a place to get stuck in traffic, the Longfellow Bridge is it. Affectionately nicknamed the “Salt and Pepper” bridge for its shaker-shaped ornamental towers, the road and railway extends over the Charles River to connect Boston with Cambridge. Take a walk across the eastern side to see a beautiful view of the layered city skyline, from the Esplanade tracing the curve of the Charles to the brownstones etched into the slopes of Beacon Hill.
