Most walkable city. Best Walk: The Charles River Esplanade & a pint for St. Pat?

Walk the 3.2 mile Boston Esplanade and stop for a pint of Guinness in Cambridge to celebrate St. Patrick's Day. Bring stories of your Irish heritage or any heritage. As they say, on St. Patrick's Day, everyone is Irish. 

Weather prediction: 41 degrees and sunny.

From Real Simple Magazine:

Best Walk: Charles River Esplanade 

Whether you’re running, walking, or biking, the century-old Charles River Esplanade is an athlete’s dream. 

We'll start this walk from the Museum of Science Subway Stop and experience the best parts of the waterfront walkway. Longfellow Bridge, Hatch Memorial Shell and across a small island, Harvard Bridge back over the river to Memorial Drive. A 3.2-mile loop. See the interactive map.

There is an option to join us for a pint of Guinness since it's St. Patrick's Day.
Museum of Science Subway Stop which is called Science Park Green Line T stop (we'll meet just inside the station on the street level). Take the E train toward Lechmere.

    A friend pointed out this is a long walk for me. I think I could do it but I found a shorter walk at another group. I hope I can build up to the walking groups level very soon. I'm not giving up, promise.
