What could be better than walking around in your favorite city during the summer?! For me, Boston is my city, my home, and one of my favorite places to venture to, especially during the summer time. With Boston’s beautiful waterfront location and overall amazing atmosphere, finding things to do during these summer months can be endless when it comes to Boston. Here are my top 3 favorite things to do in Boston during the summer:
- Go to a Red Sox game at Fenway Park
What better way to spend a summer night or weekend then at America’s Most Beloved Ballpark?! Whether you’re singing ‘Sweet Caroline’ or eating an iconic Fenway Frank, going to a Red Sox game is a summer must in Boston. Red Sox fans are unlike any other, so it’s guaranteed that you’ll have a good time and have a ball! You can even buy a pair of ISlides at the Fenway pro shop on Jersey St, where we have multiple designs that will allow you to show off and be proud of the home team. A couple of my favorite Red Sox ISlides include the Kelly Green pair, the American Flag pair, and the Pedro Martinez pair that we made exclusively when we partnered with The Pedro Martinez Foundation as part of our ISlide4Good charity program!

The Boston Public Garden
The Boston Public Garden consists of many tourist attractions like the “Make Way for Ducklings” statues and the swan boats. The statues are located near Charles and Beacon Streets and is said to be the most famous statue in the entire city. The swan boats that can be seen above are a highly notable attraction at the Boston Public Garden during the warm summer months where passengers travel 15 minutes through the Garden’s lagoon. While relaxing on the swan boats, you can even see real swans lounging about as well! Overall, the Boston Public Garden is a great summer attraction and is a beautiful area to relax and enjoy the warm weather while we still can!
The Faneuil Hall Marketplace
The Faneuil Hall Marketplace is another great summer attraction as it is known for its great shopping and extensive food options. Some great restaurants there include Dick’s Last Resort, Salty Dog Seafood Grille and Bar, and McCormick & Schmick’s. Along with the great restaurants, Faneuil Hall has a great shopping scene with stores such as The Black Dog, Urban Outfitters, and Sunglass Hut. With many awesome restaurants and stores, The Faneuil Hall Marketplace is a great way to spend a summer day walking around with friends and family!
Since these are only my top 3 things to do in Boston, there are so many other great things to do that I didn’t mention. Make sure to comment some of your favorite Boston summer activities and maybe if you’ve done one of these 3 things, what you think of them! Enjoy the dirty watah :)
