The weather has finally taken a turn here in Boston…I don’t want to hold my breath since it can literally be 80 degrees here one day and then snowing the next….BUT….I have good vibes.
Spring in Boston may be my favorite season. The city hibernates all winter long and then seems to come to life in the spring!
For most Bostonians spring starts at Fenway Park – the 1st home game means BUSINESS.
real talk: in no way, shape or form, am I a Red Sox fan….not even a little bit…not even 1%. GO MARINERS.
Back to Spring.
The second Spring event that gets everyone ready…the Boston Marathon. This year during the Marathon the weather was V miserable.
It was raining. Hard. Like really hard, SO, you can understand why I am so reluctant to say yay, its Spring!
However, the vibes are good for warmer weather in this recent week.
I am most excited for patio drinks and flowers. Lots of flowers!
The Boston Public Garden and streets like Newbury come to life. There is nothing better than sitting at the Boston Commons (with bae and baby, aka. J and Khush), looking over at the gardens and seeing them bloomed to perfection.
Here are a few of my favorite Boston Spring time things to do.
Being a huge foodie and cooking lover, the Farmers Markets are huge for me! I can keep up with all the seasonal ingredients + everything is sourced locally and helps stimulate small business.
Just like San Diego, Boston has a shit ton of breweries. One of my favorite breweries (which I haven’t had a chance to visit yet), is Trillium. They have some tasty Boston ales. You can also check out Samuel Adams and Harpoon for some well-known faves.
Take a Walk
SO many places to walk around and to. Start with the Boston Public Gardens and stroll into the Commons. Head on over to Newbury St. and window shop. Mozy on down to the Esplanade and walk along the Charles River. Take the bridge and head into Cambridge with a view of Harvard.
Stuff Your Face
There is always some place to eat in the city. Try one of the local food trucks or head over to Faneuil Hall and try local chowder. Sit on the sidewalk patio’s and enjoy a mid-day drink. Better yet, have a picnic in the park!
Hit the Trails or Tread Water
Hike the Fells or Blue Hills. Who says you have to go to New Hampshire to get that in? Rent a kayak or paddle board and get down and dirty on The Charles. Take a visit to Revere Beach where it feels quintessential BOSTONIAN.
Boston has also has a bunch of fun indoor activities like the Aquarium, The Science Museum and The Fine Arts Museum….but those involve you being inside so….
My point is GET OUT.
especially If you are in, or visiting this great
What are some of your favorite spring time activities?
