Beach Please: Nothing says summer like a trip to the beach, so why not spend your last month of the season on some of New England’s finest sand and salt water? Most people don’t associate cities with beaches, but don’t let the metropolitan areas of Boston convince you of a lack of nature. Whether it’s Revere or M Street, make sure to soak up some sun on the beaches of Boston. Best part about it? Most beaches in Boston are accessible by T.

Taco Time: Who doesn’t love margaritas and burritos? What about rooftop bars? Felipe’s Taqueria in Harvard Square has both, and so much more. Before Boston’s cold temperatures and harsh winds return, hop on the Red Line and take advantage of all Felipe’s has to offer. The best part about having fun at this Cambridge taco haven is the absence of a hefty price tag. (Burritos are only $4!) The margaritas are strong, the music is authentic, and the atmosphere screams “This is a place for Boston’s young professionals!” Whether you’re going on a date, or hanging out with friends after work, Felipe’s is the place to be.

To The Ballgame: If you haven’t been to a Red Sox game at Fenway, are you really a Bostonian? Baseball season isn’t over at the end of the summer, but why wait until you get busier in the fall? This month, take a trip to Fenway to indulge in the sport fandom, beer, and hotdogs that make America, but specifically Boston, so great. If you’re only in Boston for the summer, a day at The Green Monster is a fantastic way to wrap up your time here. Throw on some Red Sox gear, and scream until your heart’s content.
