The Best Things To Do On a Timeshare Vacation in Boston This Summer
From jogs in the Boston Common, America’s oldest public park, to picnics at Harold Square, there’s no limit to the different things to do in Boston this summer.
Whether you prefer day-drinking, catching a Red Sox game at Fenway Park (combine those two activities for an unforgettable experience), or jamming out at an outdoor music festival, there’s something for everyone in this city.
With the numerous things to do outdoors in Boston, finding a way to stay fit is a breeze. Check out the Boston Esplanade, a six-mile stretch of trails perfect for jogs, bicycle rides, and even romantic strolls. This picturesque destination in Beacon Hill offers breathtaking views along the Charles River, so exercising will never seem like a chore during those morning runs along the scenic riverbank.
For those who aren’t as into jogging, the Boston Esplanade is also home to tennis courts, waterways (windsurfing can burn over 200 calories per hour!), and playing fields.
Explore Boston’s History
You don’t need to be a history buff to appreciate Boston’s legendary landmarks spread throughout the city. From the Bunker Hill Monument to Fort Warren, Boston is home to more than 50 National Historic Landmarks, turning even a casual afternoon walk into an opportunity to learn about the city’s culture.
For those interested in expanding their historical horizons, Harvard Square is a must-see. Now a commercial and cultural center, this is the monumental spot where President Washington took control of the Continental Army. Stop by to soak up some of Boston’s heritage, grab a coffee and hang out with the Harvard students.
If there was ever a time to break open the piggy banks, summer in Boston is it. The best part about shopping in Boston is the variety of brands, stores, and outdoor markets.
For the high-end shopper, visit Newbury Street, occasionally referred to as the Rodeo Drive of the East. For the vintage shopper, the SoWa Open Market is sure to please, featuring handcrafted indie clothing, jewelry, and original art.
For those looking for a laid-back way to spend their day with or without the kids, be sure to visit Tia's On the Waterfront, one of the area’s most popular day-drinking spots.
Bostonians know it’s summertime when Tia’s opens its doors in April – this spot is only open through October. Stop by for a relaxed bite to eat or some after work cocktails while enjoying views of the Boston Harbor and Christopher Columbus Park.
Stay in a Boston timeshare rental, or if you want to enjoy the beach Cape Cod timeshare rentals are just the ticket, and only an hour’s drive from Boston.
