With the weather supposedly reaching into the high 60’s this weekend, there’s nothing better than the feeling of spring in Boston. Parks throughout the city are packed with locals, while tourists flock to Newbury St and the North End to shop and sample the local New England cuisine.
If you live in the greater Boston area, there are probably a few springtime events you’ve got your eye on. Our Boston moving company also recommends adding these springtime activities to your list.
Things to do in Boston this Spring
- Rent a Boat on the Charles. Whether you’re into sailing or canoeing, there’s plenty of boat rentals scattered along the Charles River. Grab a friend or two and kayak your way along the winding river, or if you’re feeling more adventurous, opt for a sailing lesson in the basin.
- Catch a Red Sox Game. It’s officially baseball season and the Sox are already one of the best teams in the league. There’s nothing more enjoyable than grabbing cheap tickets, a bite to eat at a local sports bar in the Fenway area, then heading over to the stadium for the game.
- Attend a Farmer’s Market. Springtime means the long-awaiting reopening of Boston’s local farmers markets. Choose from the Boston Public Market, Sowa Open Market, Union Square Farmer’s Market, and more scattered throughout the city limits. You’re bound to find the freshest produce at unbeatable prices.
- Brewery Tour. Many tourists who come to Boston often come here for the craft brews — because they know Bostonians do it right. Start off at Harpoon, then make your way to Sam Adams and Trillium Brewing. Next hop over the river to the Cambridge side and sample some delicious cider from Downeast Cider Company and small-batch beers from Night Shift Brewing.
- Rent a Bike. The city of Boston has made a huge push for making the city biker friendly. From installing hundreds of miles of bike lanes to providing free commuter bikes to residents and tourists, city officials have made it easy to get around on the cheap. Grab a friend and your phone and tour the city on two wheels while snapping photos of some historic sites.
