    2011-12-21

    Travelers who enjoy exploring new cities to see some beautiful urban landscapes could consider a trip to Madrid, Spain. According to Frommer's, Spanish officials have been working overtime to ensure that their capital city is one of the greenest in the world. Baby boomers who like to visit large metropolises and get a nature fix as well can head to this destination on their next trip.

    A lovely French-inspired park that is perfect for a sunny stroll is El Capricho de Alameda. This leafy area has a scenic artificial lake, plenty of shady trees and a rich history that goes back to the late 18th century.

    Moors' Field is small in comparison to some other parks in Madrid, but it's views leading up to the Royal palace are breathtaking, reports Fodor's. After walking the ground, guests can visit the Carriage Museum to see some equestrian-themed relics from the 16th century.

    Parque del Buen Retiro may be one of the most fun parks around. Inside this giant expanse of urban beauty are outdoor safes, street performers and sidewalk painters. This park used to be a private playground for Spanish royalty.
