Whether you’re in Boston for business or pleasure this summer, regardless of how long you’ll be staying, you have to spare some time to enjoy the great activities and festivities that take place here during this season. Summer is a particularly special time in this city with its numerous offerings of sporting, cultural and food events as well as different outdoor activities.
If you won’t be staying in Boston for long, below are the three summertime activities you should put on the top of your list:
- Attend a summer concert.
What sets summer concerts in Boston apart? For one, most concerts take place outdoors. The iconic Fenway Park, Blue Hills Bank Pavilion, and Gillette Stadium are just some of the most popular venues for these concerts. You’ll also be able to see big-name bands and performers: U2, Aerosmith, Coldplay, The Chainsmokers, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, and Bruce Springsteen are just some of entertainers set to have concerts in the city in the coming months.
Boston is a lively city, full of culture, fun, and many opportunities for adventure. It’s also the home of the Major League Baseball Team the Boston Red Sox. Starting in 2004, they’ve had a run of winning World Series championship titles. They also won in 2007 and 2013. The “Curse of the Bambino” was supposedly to blame for their extremely long drought in between winning championships. This spanned 86-years, from 1918 to 2004. They’re also well noted for having a bitter rivalry with the New York Yankees, one of the most historic rivalries in professional sports to date.
If you haven’t visited Fenway Park to see a Boston Red Sox game, you owe it to yourself to stay in the city and go. Here at The Envoy Hotel, we make for the perfect place to stay and enjoy while you’re taking in a game, seeing the sights around the city, and going out at night. We’re a mere four miles from the stadium, which makes staying with us and getting tickets to watch a game a no-brainer. Fenway Park is the oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball, making it one of the most historical to visit. One of its most notable, talked about features is the Green Monster in left field.
