I am finally getting into the swing of summer which means my poor blog here won't be so neglected anymore. I apologize.
Today I'm sharing three fun things to do in Boston in the summer- all of which I've done in the last few weeks. Maybe they'll give you some ideas? Let me know! :)
Number 1: The Obligatory Boston Date
Since M moved here, I've wanted to take him to Fenway. Even though he's a Yankees fan (it's a point of contention in our relationship) he wanted to see the park. Fenway is such a huge part of Boston. It's one of the oldest parks and I absolutely love it. I'm not a huge baseball gal, but something about Fenway always gets me into the spirit. You can also get tickets relatively cheap-I don't think there is a bad seat in the park!
If you go make sure to: try a fenway frank hotdog, participate in the wave and scout out which player has the hottest bum (I mean...)
Number 2: My Fantasy Come True
I'm cupcake obsessed. Cupcake Wars? Georgetown Cupcake? Yup, I've watched them all. So, when I happened to pass by Georgetown cupcake the other day of Newbury Street, I couldn't help but try one. It was delicious. I will definitely be returning.
Walking down Newbury Street is a great activity because there are so many shops- everything from Gucci to H & M. It's great for people watching as well (because let's admit-I'm a creeper who enjoys people watching-don't we all?)
Number 3: Who Knew Donating Could be So Yummy
Boston is home to a lot of great charities, including the Jimmy Fund. The Jimmy Fund held an event this week called the Scooperbowl-aka you paid, went in and was able to eat unlimited ice cream from various vendors-aka my dream come true. It was delicious!!! What was even better was knowing all the calories I ingested were for a great cause.
Boston has a ton of nonprofits and charities-so if you visit, make sure to check out what events are going on- a lot of times they are super fun and delicious like this one!
So, there you go- three fun things to do in this beautiful city.
Ever visited Boston or live here? What are some of your favorite things to do?
