Boston, MA – August 13, 2019
If you have looked at a weather report lately – or simply just stepped outside – you know that summer is still here in Boston… but it won't be for much longer! Some of us are day dreaming about cooler weather and a break in the heat, but soon the leaves will change and fall, the days will get colder and shorter, our morning commutes will feature snow and ice, and we will be day dreaming about these days in the summer sun. To help you hang on to these last few weeks of summer, we put together a few easy – and completely free – ways to take advantage of the warm weather around the city.
