Summer in this New England city is particularly astonishing. Since the city is known to experience some drastic winter temperatures, its residents really go all out when it comes to celebrating summer. Some popular summer activities include: outdoor beer gardens by the ocean, Red Sox games at Fenway Park, kayaking on the Charles river, and or grabbing some grub at one of the city’s many food festivals. From Fenway franks to a cold glass of Sam Adams straight from the tap, the local flavors are world-renowned and definitely worth experiencing first-hand.
