Memorial Day is on May 28 and in Boston, this period also happens to be the beginning of summer in this great, modern city. With the warm weather comes tourist season – a time to enjoy the warmth and the great sights and experiences that come with visiting Boston this time of the year.
There are a ton of activities waiting for you in Boston Memorial Day. One of the more well-known events that kick off Memorial Day would be the Garden of Flags event, spearheaded by the Massachusetts Military Heroes organization. A total of 37,000 US flags will be planted at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument. This is done to commemorate all the servicemen and women who have offered their lives for the country since the Revolutionary War.
For entertainment, head to Fenway Park where the Boston Red Sox will be playing a total of four baseball games. There’s also the annual Boston Calling Music Festival (this will be held at the Harvard Stadium), plus acts like Blue Man Group for your dose of good old comedy. The whole city will be abuzz with activity and Memorial Day entertainment so there won’t be any shortage of fun activities.
Memorial Day wouldn’t be complete without a bit of shopping on the side. Don’t forget that there are also awesome sales throughout the Memorial Day period. Visit Boston for deep sales as the warm weather also signals the time for people to get some serious shopping done. Visit Prudential Center, Copley Place and Newbury Street for your dose of shopping, Boston style.
Day tours and activities are far from expensive. In fact, tours like the Boston Duck Tour: The Original and World-Famous only costs $44.97. If you’re feeling like you want something more classic and close to old Boston life, check out the Old Town Trolley Tour of Boston which is one or two days long, which costs just $41.95.
For accommodations your best option would certainly be the the Envoy Hotel, which provide a superior experience to all guests. The Envoy Classic Room (which is the standard room), offers a beautiful view of the city and the water. Made spacious and urbane, this particular accommodation is perfect for one or two guests.
The Deluxe Larger King Room on the other hand, features bold architecture, a stylish finish and more room for relaxation and enjoyment of this fine city.
