Summer Fun in Boston

It’s time to get outside and enjoy the warm weather! Which means we’ve compiled the best list of things to do this summer in Boston! 


A staple of Boston, of course, is the Boston Common! The Boston Common is the main central park of Boston, Massachusetts and is actually the oldest public park in America! You can participate in all different activities, whether you’d like to have a picnic or just take a stroll, you’ll find that “the park includes ballfields, a tot lot and the Frog Pond, which provides skating in winter and a spray pool for children in the summer.” A great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful weather and scenery Boston has to offer. 


Whether you’re traveling as a family or just love animals, the Franklin Park Zoo is a great spot to visit in the Summer! From Exhibits, Attractions, and Shopping & Dining, they’ve got you covered. You’ll always find an updated schedule on their website of the different attractions they’re offering that day. Find hundreds of exotic animals along the trails from African Lions to Ring-Tailed Lemurs.
