Summertime in Boston is normally a joyous time for locals. The college students depart, traffic dies down a bit, and the city's great parks and outdoor spaces come to life. But there's no denying that summer 2020 offers a very different landscape.

Whether you're still ordering delivery and checking out ebooks or you're comfortable venturing outside, this list has something for everyone. Take a look at 20 ways you can still make the most of summer in Boston. (Just remember, given these ever-changing times, be sure to check directly with venues to confirm details before heading out.)
