The birthplace of America on the picturesque Atlantic Ocean
BEST TIME TO VISIT
Springtime months April and May can still be chilly with daily highs in the low to high teens, but the blossoming wildflowers and sugaring maple trees make this a beautiful time of year for hikers. Sports fans will enjoy the baseball fever that grips the area as the Boston Red Sox begin their season. Even non-runners will get wrapped up in the excitement of the Boston Marathon which takes place annually in late April.
The summertime months of July to August are much warmer, averaging 22°C during the day. The warmer temperature is perfect for exploring national parks, admiring glacial lakes and enjoying the Tanglewood classical music festival. Kicking off in mid-June, the renowned Boston Symphony Orchestra holds several concerts at the Tanglewood Estate, providing a hauntingly beautiful experience.
Ideal weather: 25 – 32°C
