June Hot SPOTs – Things to Do in Boston This Month

June 3, 2016 - 4 minutes read

Looking for things to do in Boston this summer? Here are the top 5 events happening this June! And don’t worry, we’ve got you covered on parking.

Walk On Water: The first thing to do in Boston this June is to walk on the Esplanade along the Charles River. Park your car on Newbury Street and walk down Mass Avenue to soak up some sun on a bench, or go for a run. If you’re feeling adventurous, take a seat on the docks. 

10585559334_d597e94cb1Sit On the Roof: Love beer and baseball? Us too. There’s nothing better to do this summer than to score a home run with your friends by bringing them to Baseball Tavern. Beer, burgers and four floors of fun, one of which is a roof deck overlooking Fenway Park, this place has it all. The best part is its location – a three minute walk away from Fenway Park. 


Stay Afloat: Treat yourself to a $17 cruise this summer, and escape on the ferries that travel between six of Boston’s 34 harbor islands. The view speaks for itself, but a picture is worth a thousand words, so we won’t judge you if you document this adventure on Instagram. Begin your journey at Long Wharf. Our closest SPOT is located in East Boston! Click here for tickets and more information. 

Story Time: Release your inner child this month, and partake in story time again thanks to WGBH and massmouth. Check out this exciting new event series called Stories from the Stage. The theme this month is “Endless Summer.” Find parking in Brighton, and walk to the WGBH studios to hear stories about BBQs, outdoor adventures, and summer camp. Maybe it’ll inspire you to tell a few of your own. You can find more information and tickets here.

22694117995_5085feb139Picnic In the Park:  Skip the hassle of making reservations, or waiting for a table to open up at your favorite restaurant, and bring your lunch with you to Boston Common. You can pack yourself a homemade lunch, or grab something on-the-go from a cafe on Newbury Street. Our closest SPOT is near Cafeteria on Newbury. Be sure to bring a basket, blanket, and a good book with you. And bring your friends too if you don’t feel like riding solo.

Duck It: Sightseeing on a Boston Duck Tour should definitely be a thing on your Boston summer bucket list. Leaving from three convenient locations (Museum of Science, Prudential Center, and New England Aquarium), these tours make a stop at all the places that make Boston so special. And I know what you’re thinking, but no, driving to all the same spots in your car is not the same thing. Why? Because I bet your car isn’t part boat. That’s right, when you’re done touring on land, be prepared to take a trip into the Charles River for the view of a lifetime. Find more information and tickets here!
