Boston is beautiful in the spring and many Boston hotels, like the Boston Park Plaza, are preparing for springtime visitors ready to enjoy 'Things to do in Boston'.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 18, 2013
Boston has its charms all year long, but there is something special in the air when spring rolls around. It’s not quite warm enough for the beach, but there are still plenty of ways to enjoy spending time outdoors. Here are five of the top 'things to do in Boston' this spring.
Walk the Freedom Trail
The Freedom Trail is a 2.5-mile walking history tour that takes participants to 16 important historic attractions such as Paul Revere’s House, the Old North Church and the Bunker Hill Monument. Visitors can choose a guided or self-guided tour. Some complete the tour in a couple of hours while others take their time and make stops along the way. Of all the things to do in Boston, this is one of the best ways to learn about the city and enjoy the spring weather at the same time.
Ride the Swan Boats
Boston Public Garden
4 Charles Street
Boston, Massachusetts 02216
Not much has changed about a ride on the Swan Boats since they first began more than 130 years ago. Riders hop on the boat and are transported around the Public Garden Lagoon for a delightful, peaceful ride. Located nearby is the famous brass sculpture that pays tribute to the book Make Way for Ducklings, which is partially set on Boston Public Garden’s Swan Boats.
Take a Boston Bike Tour
Visitors can get some exercise and see the sites with a Boston bike tour offered by Urban Adventours. There are several tours of various lengths to choose from, and there is something to suit most ages and fitness levels. Depending on which tour is selected, participants may be able to step out of their Boston hotel and meet up with the tour guide. This is a fabulous choice when looking for things to do in Boston in the spring.
Visit Castle Island and Sullivan’s
2080 William J Day Boulevard
South Boston, Massachusetts 02127
Act like a local with a stop to Castle Island and Sullivan’s, a long-time South Boston favorite for a summer snack. Visitors to Castle Island can walk or jog around the Sugar Bowl, a pathway that extends out into the bay in a crescent shape. Playgrounds, fishing and observing the 19th century fort are other options. Visitors should be sure to grab a black and white frappe, hot dog or lobster roll at Sullivan’s. This take-out-only restaurant has been serving up these fast and yummy favorites to locals since 1951. Note: Tours of the interior of the fort are only offered during the summer months.
See a Red Sox Game
4 Yawkey Way
Boston, Massachusetts 02215
No list of things to do in Boston in the spring would be complete without suggesting taking in a Red Sox game. Bostonians love their Red Sox, so whether they are winning or losing, visitors are sure to be surrounded by very vocal fans. Keep in mind that if the Sox are playing that other team from a nearby state that tickets should be purchased early. Tickets for games between these two rivals always sell out quickly.
