August 2020: We’re all about making the most out of what has been a difficult 2020 thus far. Temps are slowly rising, and it’s time to emerge, albeit carefully, from our cocoons to get some fresh air. Among the best things to do year-round in Boston are plenty that take place away from the elements, but given the current conditions, options like awesome hiking, sunny beaches, fun cruises, and outdoor dining should move to the top of your list.
Given the ever-changing nature of government rules and restrictions, not everything listed here might be open to the public — remember to always confirm direct with the venue in advance of making plans.
