Summer is one of the best times to visit Boston. With so much to do outside in the city, you'll find plenty of things to occupy your time.
Summer weekends in Boston are when the North End (Boston's Little Italy), hosts its annual feasts. Join the procession of the Saints, feast on the best neighborhood fare, and enjoy live music from Friday to Sunday in the North End.
If you're hoping to get out on the water, grab a ticket for a Boston Harbor Cruise. You can enjoy everything from whale watches to sunset sails. The weekend sails typically book up fast, so reserve your spot ahead of time to ensure you get a day at sea.
The SoWa Open Markets are every Sunday in the South End during the summer months, and where you can find some great local art, organic foods and endless stalls of clothing, jewelry and crafts.
