The beginning of summer invites an exciting variety of activities to embrace and escape the heat. Age-old traditions cherished by locals for generations include the historic Fenway Park, Charles River (Boston’s alleyway to the ocean), and some old-school artistic hangouts. Read on to learn about three of our favorite things to do in Boston over the summer.

A Red Sox Game at Fenway Park
One of the most beloved of Boston’s many professional sports franchises, the defending World Series Champion Boston Red Sox are already underway for a summer of sharing their amazing skill and fierce competition with patrons of Fenway Park.
Fenway— mentioned in the National Register of Historic Places— has offered unique architecture and a central metropolitan location to the city of Boston for over a century. The weather will be nice and the energy of these passionate Boston fans will be booming all summer. So head out to Yawkey Way and watch the Sox try and defend the title.

Just a short ride on the greenline of the T— Boston’s subway system— Fenway Park is within easy access of the Boxer Hotel.

Movie at Coolidge Corner
As many outdoor activities as there are in Boston, the summer months often get hot and sometimes people need a break. One of the hippest air-conditioned locations is a movie theatre in Brookline at the historic Coolidge Corner. The Coolidge Corner theatre has a classic 1950s style marquee and an interior inspired by an early 20th century playhouse. Often showing independent films, and screenings of old movies, the Coolidge Corner Theatre is one unique and fun spot to escape the summer heat.

Just a short ride up the green line and residents of the Boxer Hotel can access the age old splendor of this Brookline theatre.
