Springtime in Boston

In the middle of a New England winter, you may feel like you'll never be warm again, but even the harshest winters eventually give way to spring. New England is arguably the best place on Earth to enjoy springtime, and lucky for us, it’s only a week away. The only problem is, how do you make the most of the season? With so much to do, it's hard to choose just one activity when the weather’s nice. Here are five great ways to spend a spring day in Boston:

Lose Yourself in Boston Common

This 50-acre park is crisscrossed by dozens of walking paths, all near something interesting to do or see. You’ll gain a greater understanding of New England history when you visit the Soldiers and Sailors Monument, and your kids won’t want to miss the Boston Common Carousel. If you’re feeling whimsical, cross the street and take a ride on the Swan Boats in the Boston Public Garden.

Shopping on Newbury Street

When it comes to outdoor shopping, you can’t beat Newbury Street. You’ll find a wide variety of shops featuring everything from high-end luxury items to consignments. If you get tired from all the browsing, take a break in one of the many cafés.

Spend a Day on the Charles River

Even a city you know well may look different when you see it from the water. Rent a canoe or kayak and paddle around the river, take a sailing class, or just go for a swim.

Take a Trolley Tour

Trolley tours may have a reputation as a tourist-only activity, but they're actually a great way to get to know your own city better. Spring is without a doubt the best time to trolley around Boston. There are several different tours available, but be sure to go for the hop-on, hop-off option so you can be free to explore the city at your own pace.

Watch a Baseball Game at Fenway Park

In America, it's hard to think of spring without thinking of baseball. In Boston, baseball means the Red Sox and Fenway Park. For over 100 years, Fenway Park has played host to one of the greatest teams in baseball. Watching a game at Fenway makes you part of an American tradition.

These suggestions are only a handful of the Greater Boston sights and activities worth spending a spring day on. Start here and see what else you come up with!
