Boston is a four season city and each season has its own unique charms with crisp falls, brisk winters, appealing springs and spectacular summers. Summer and fall are the most popular times of the year for travelers to visit Boston, when the weather is mild and outdoor activities are at their best. Summer sees the annual Fourth of July festivities, including a free concert by the Boston Pops with the Charles River as backdrop. In fall, the city’s thousands of students return, and the vibrant foliage and events such as the Head of the Charles regatta give the town an appealing collegiate feel. The best harbinger of spring is April’s Boston Marathon, when runners hit the pavement for one of the nation’s most challening road races. And of course anytime of year is ideal to enjoy the city’s many museums and entertainment options like the Boston Symphony, the Boston Pops or the nation’s most famous ballpark, Fenway.
