Visiting Greater Boston
As summertime continues, so does some of the best weather Greater Boston gets all year. July and August high temperatures hover in the 80s and ocean breezes help keep the humidity from becoming too muggy – its the perfect time of year to experience countless one-of-a-kind attractions, join in community events and festivals, and cheer on some of the nation's most beloved sports teams.
The Freedom Trail and Boston National Historical Park are must-sees for first-time visitors, and the weather's perfect for a midday stroll on a guided or self-guided tour. Get a sense of the role Boston played in the American Revolution at sites like the Bunker Hill Monument, Faneuil Hall, and the Paul Revere House.
First-time visitors can also get a lay of the land via Boston Duck Tours. Traversing land and sea, World War II-era duck boats carry groups past dozens of iconic landmarks on tours ranging from 60 to 90 minutes, departing from the Museum of Science, the Prudential Center, and the New England Aquarium.
The 2015 season is in full swing for the Boston Red Sox, and nothing beats an evening at Fenway Park enjoying America's Pastime. The Olde Towne Team defends home field through the beginning of October, and some of this season's most exciting home matchups pit the Sox against age-old rivals like the New York Yankees, in a three-game series, August 31st through September 2nd, and the Baltimore Orioles, in another three-game stand, September 25th through 27th.
And before you know it, the defending Super Bowl champions storm the field at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, just south of Sharon. Ending the long summer football drought, the New England Patriots host the Green Bay Packers in the preseason opener on August 13th and the action continues through the first week of January.
All July and August, the Commonwealth Shakespeare Company stages King Lear in front of the Parkman Bandstand on Boston Common, as part of Shakespeare on the Common 2015. Bring blankets and folding chairs and revisit one of the legendary playwright's most classic tragedies under the stars on a balmy Boston evening.
Movie buffs and movie stars alike descend upon Boston for the 31st Annual Boston Film Festival, September 24th through 28th. One of America’s longest-running celebrations of film, the BFF showcases shorts, documentaries, and feature length films in multiple venues, promising special Q & A sessions with filmmakers and actors.
