Boston Common consists of a large and open, irradiated area. The common contains other locations such as the Massachusetts State House to the north, Swan's Pond on the western side, the Boylston Club, the red door in the southern row of buildings, the Prost bar, a basement bar on the north corner of the western row of buildings, and Park Street station, on the northeasternmost corner.
The Freedom Trail also begins at Boston Common. There is a friendly protectron named tour bot located on the eastern side of the common next to the fountain. In front of the fountain, there is a sign and a seal. The sign reads, "At Journey's End Follow Freedom's Lantern." The seal says "The Freedom Trail. Boston." There appears to be a code. The number 7 is written in the center with red ink, and the letter A in Trail is bracketed. Each of the seals has a number that corresponds to a letter in "railroad" - for example, the seal marked 1 has the "R" marked.
- A copy of Grognak the Barbarian issue #6 - On the ground in the gazebo at the center of the Common next to a skeleton and several radiation barrels.
- When at this location companions make comments. These comments are activated just in front of the infantry fighting vehicle.
