When In Boston: What To Do This Summer

With the temperatures going up, masks slowly but surely coming off and the world feeling safer, this summer is starting to feel like it could be one of the best yet. So what are some of the best activities to do around Massachusetts? Today's post will give you some recommendations that are safe, cultural and fun for the whole family.

#1: Boston Harbor Cruise

One of the things Boston is best known for are the stunning city views from the harbor and the spectacular skyline. The cruises around the harbor are great for sightseeing, romantic date nights, and starting at $30 a ticket, your wallet.

#2: Freedom Trail Tour

As one of the U.S.'s first official states, the city is ripe with historical landmarks and culture. The best way to experience all of this history is undoubtedly the Freedom Trail Tour throughout the city's various landmarks. Especially great with the kids, the costumed tour guides add an air of authenticity and a touch of humor to the day.

#3: Museum of Fine Arts

The MFA is well-known for being one of the best museums in the Northeast, boasting a large array of art, sculptures and cultural history. Easily accessible by public transit, the MFA is an institution that every Bostonian (and especially visitors) should visit at least once. With discounted tickets during the summer, there's no excuse not to go soak up Boston's finest art spot.

#4: Fenway Park

Most likely the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Boston is Fenway (or as natives call it, "The Green Monstah"). Home to one of the best baseball teams and so many summer events, there's always something happening at Fenway. Even just taking a walking tour through the stadium is a great way to spend an afternoon, hot dog in hand of course.

#5: Martha's Vineyard

Easily one of the best places to visit in the summer, Martha's Vineyard has something for everyone (even the kids). Go on a walking tour of the vineyard itself, visit the historic Martha's Vineyard Museum, and take a hike through the Aquinnah Hills. Of course wine tastings are always on the menu, and you'll be sampling some of the finest sips in the country. Overall, "the Vineyard" is one of MA's hottest summer spots by far.


We hope you enjoyed these recommendations and hopefully booked yourself a trip to spend a day doing at least one. Happy summer, Boston!
