A little late March snowfall can’t stop time: Spring has technically arrived in Boston, and soon springtime weather will as well.

Here are several photographic reminders of just how gorgeous the city can look.

↑ Back Bay is one of the best Boston neighborhoods for inhaling springtime. And it’s pretty historic, too.

↑ Speaking of especially beautiful neighborhoods in springtime, Beacon Hill is probably the city’s most aesthetically pleasing year-round, what with its narrow lanes, brick sidewalks, antique townhouses, window boxes, and the occasional cobblestone street.

↑ The South End, too, with its Victorians and vegetation, can provide walks to savor when the blooming starts.

↑ The Charles River Esplanade provides not only a fantastic hangout for the warmer months, but fantastic views of Cambridge across the Charles River. Here’s Harvard from Boston.

↑ Can’t go wrong in the spring with Boston Common, what with its hidden gems and its many activities (swan boats, anyone?).

↑ The Harvard-owned Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain provides 281 acres of springtime reminders. Plus: Bike paths.
