As spring in Boston approaches, we have the treat of getting to look forward to some of the city's most exciting attractions. Between now and May 1, we will be home to The Boston Marathon, the Red Sox Opening Day, Boston Restaurant Week and those iconic swan boats will be back in the Public Garden.
The Boston Marathon
Every April, Boston plays host of hundreds of runners and their families from all over the world as they compete (or attempt to finnish) the infamous 26.2 mile trail right into the heart of downtown Boston. Additional activities on the day (this year, April 16th), include gathering on the Commonwealth Avenue Mall to watch the runners as the enter into their final mile. It is an exciting, emotional and unforgettable experience!
Red Sox Opening Day
What a party indeed! This year, on April 13th, the Red Sox will play the first game of their season at the historic Fenway park against the Tampa Bay Rays. Every year the city of Boston comes together to make their team feel special and at home. It is important to rev them up for the new season.
Boston Restaurant Week
Get your taste buds ready to party without your pocket book having to suffer. This year, restaurant week is March 18-23 & 25-30. There are 200+ restaurants participating in and around Boston and Cambridge. You can access the directory here. This is an excellent way to try new places, or justify returning to your favorites.
The Swan Boats in the Gardens
There are few images that conjure up the feel of Boston in the springtime the way that the swan boats sitting on the pond in the public garden do. They a large part of Boston history, and while they don't sail quickly, if you haven't taken a ride on one... I would highly recommend it. Even if you're a Boston native (or, perhaps especially if you're a Boston native)-- Embrase your inner tourist!
With so much to look forward to, how could you not get excited on days with sunshine like today?
