Boston Common is the nation's oldest public park, and throughout the last 350 years, it has served many purposes. From grazing cows to civil rights marchers, the parks has seen visitors of all types.

These days, many of those visitors head over to the Visitor Information Center to find out all about the Common and the city. A small building next to the Park Ranger's station and at the beginning of the Freedom Trail, thousands of people walk through its doors every day.

So, let's add some ears to that number during our visit to Boston Common.
