Boston Summer Activities

  • The Liberty Hotel Boston - Bar

    Patio Bar

    When the temperature hits 60 degrees, a true Bostonian celebrates by getting drinks at a patio bar. One of our favorite spots is The Yard located in The Liberty Hotel. Not only does The Yard have an exceptional food and drink list prepared by Boston’s finest, but it also hosts Yappier Hour. Every Monday and Wednesday from 5:30 - 8:00 pm, locals and guests are invited to bring their furry friends for some refreshing cocktails in the private outdoor enclave.

  • Sheraton Boston Hotel - Red Sox Partner

    Red Sox Game

    During the summer, locals and tourists alike pack Fenway Stadium. Get a true Bostonian experience and make an entire day out of the game. Before the game, go to the Sheraton Boston for its tasting menu inspired by the MLB.

  • Comedy Club Boston

    Comedy Club

    Boston knows that a comedy club is the ideal place to recharge after the stressful workweek. We recommend Laugh Boston, located in the lobby of The Westin Boston Waterfront. With its vibrant drink menu, charming staff, and most important hysterical comedians,  Laugh Boston unsurprisingly was voted was voted Boston’s Best Comedy Club in 2015. Performances are every Wednesdays and Thursdays and at 8:00 pm and Fridays and Saturdays at 10:15pm. To check out a full schedule, click here.

  • RunWestin | Boston

    Run in the City

    Home of one of the top marathons, it is no surprise that Boston is packed with runners. Hit the pavement and run the 7.08 miles the Esplanade path or the shorter 2.3 Jamaica Pond loop. The Westin Copley Place also offers guided group runs every Tuesday and Thursday at 6:30 am (weather permitting) the lobby.

  • Hatch Shell

    Concerts on The Hatch Shell

    The Hatch Shell is an open-air stadium located at Boston’s Esplanade park. The Hatch Shell is best known its Boston Pops Orchestra 4th of July celebration, but it is also used for free concerts most weekends and many weeknights during the summer months. The lawn in front of the shell fills up on a first-come, first-serve basis. Remember to bring lawn chairs and blankets.

  • Boston Lobster Roll

    Boston Lobster Roll

    Nothing says summer in Boston like a Lobster Roll. These summer delights might not be the cheapest, but once you’ve had one, you’ll be willing to shell (no pun intended) out the money to buy another.  You can get one on almost any seafood menu, but we recommend Neptune Oyster.  ProTip: A New England Lobster Roll is lightly tossed in Mayo while a Connecticut Lobster Roll is tossed in melted butter instead.


  • Bocce Ball

    Bocce Ball

    The North End is more than Italian Food. It is also home to Langone Park Bocce Courts. Bocce is a traditional Italian game with its origins rooted in ancient Rome. If playing is not your thing you can always watch “Friends Of The North End” Bocce league play on Sunday mornings while enjoying a cannoli.

  • Boston Parade

    Go to a Parade

    Whether it is the rowdy St. Patrick’s Day parades or over the top Harborfest, Boston loves festivals and celebrations. This summer check out a lesser known parades like the Famous Boston Chefs in Shorts or the Battle of Bunker Hill Day Parade. Find out more here!
