things to do in boston this summer

sweet sweet summertime is upon us, and it's time to get out and do some fun stuff. while a lot of people opt to leave boston during the summer to head down the cape or out to nantucket, there are plenty of activities in the city that are worth sticking around for! here are a few of my favorites.
+ it's no surprise that i love the street. i've shopped there forever and i've loved watching it grow. summertime at the street has tons of amazing events for the whole family, including a totally revamped focus on fitness. and you KNOW i love me some fitness (especially when it's free)! every sunday at 9:30am they're hosting yoga on the green and every tuesday at 7pm they're hosting kick it by eliza with emily crocker. i've yet to do a kick it class, but this is the perfect opportunity for me to try it out! will i see any of you there?

+ if you can't get out of the city to cool off at the beach, there are tons of pools in the city to visit for a quick dip (and to get a tan)! the colonnade in back bay has a pretty killer rooftop pool, and so does the revere hotel on the common. last summer i visited the clubs at charles river park for a day and had a blast. it's pretty quiet, the pool is clean and there's tons of place. plus there's an adorable jugos pop up there!

+ in the summer i like to visit my old standbys for a nice blast of AC. the museum of fine arts and the isabella stewart gardner museum are two of my absolute favorites and both have great exhibits going on throughout the summer.
+ and if you're looking for something to do after work, bar boulud in the mandarin oriental is the place to be. all summer long monday through wednesday 4:30-6:30pm you can get $1 oysters at the bar, in the lounge or on the terrace. they also have an exceptional rosé list, so you can't go wrong with a little oyster happy hour!

that's just a taste of all the boston attractions i love in the summer; what are some of your favorites?
