Our Favorite Boston Springtime Activities

New England Aquarium 

With spring flowers comes spring showers so we wanted to provide you with some options that you can do rain or shine! The New England Aquarium is the perfect spot to spend the day with the family seeing all sorts of sea creatures. From sharks to stingrays, there is so much to explore. Additionally, spring markets the return of the Atlantic whale-watching season, so consider hopping on a whale watch while you’re in the area!

Take a Cruise Around Boston Harbor

Additionally, there are unique cruising experiences that you can take advantage of coming up this spring. Enjoy a St. Patrick’s Brunch Cruise happening March 19 & 20, complete with a 3-course Irish breakfast, drinks, and live music!

With changing exhibits and interactive fun, everyone in the family is sure to have a great day at the museum!

Patriots Day / Marathon Monday

Patriots Day is a big day for Boston. Although originally designed to honor the start of the American Revolution, this day is also the date of the Boston Marathon, a beloved tradition in the city of Boston. The best part? You don’t have to be a runner to get in on the fun. Take part in the celebration by cheering on the participants and soak up the adrenaline of the crowd watching with you. You can cheer participants on throughout the race route, although many gather on Boylston Street to celebrate the athletes crossing the finish line. 

St. Patrick’s Day Parade

Another great tradition in Boston is the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. During the parade, you’ll enjoy colorful floats, music, and Irish cheer as Boston takes the time to celebrate Irish heritage. The parade will take place on Sunday, March 20th at 1:00 pm. The parade starts on West Broadway and ends at Dorchester Avenue. If you’re looking for a good viewing spot, your best bet will be to stake out a spot anywhere along Broadway!
