One | Kayaking the Charles River

Kayaking the Charles River is an essential summer activity in Boston. My recommendation is to rent a kayak from the Kendall Square location. You'll get great views of the city, which make for great photographs!

Two | Visiting the Harbor Islands

The Harbor Islands are a great day trip! You can catch a ferry at Long Wharf and be at George's Island, Spectacle Island, Peddocks Island, Lovells Island, Thompson Island, Grape Island, and Bumpkin Island. Some islands allow you to go to another island in between Boston and your destination island. There is another island accessible through Southie called Castle Island.

Ferry: $17 roundtrip | Harbor Islands


Three | Attend a game at Fenway

It's not summer until you attend a ball game at Fenway. Grab a Fenway dog, a beer, bring a glove and you're all set for the game. It's hard to pass an opportunity to watch a game at America's oldest ball park.

Four | Head to the beach

Did you know Boston has a beach in the city? Now you do! Head to M Street Beach or Carson Beach for the day. While most people like to go to other beaches in Massachusetts, these beaches are great when you want to go on the fly!
