Best Place to People-Watch


Has anyone aptly put into words the reason the WaterFire experience has been embraced so deeply? You'd need a big dash of poetry to do so. When those pyres are lit, the grand stroll along the downcity river becomes an intriguing saunter. Couples arm in arm, a gaggle of pals chuckling, babies enjoying a stroller session — there are plenty of encounters to clock and, even if you don't speak to those you're passing, the voyeuristic side of humanity is sated. Factor in some glorious weather — June can be sublime — and the attraction becomes irresistible.
