Whether you’re preparing to start your first semester at the McCallum Graduate School of Business at Bentley University or have just finished a busy year and are eager to relax, Boston has plenty of fun and refreshing summer activities. Here are just a few enjoyed by visitors and locals alike:
- Sail Jamaica Pond
In the Jamaica Plain neighborhood lies Jamaica Pond, a glacially-formed basin surrounded by a scenic walking path. You can rent a paddleboat or sailboat by the hour in order to try your luck at fishing or simply enjoy a floating picnic.
- Take a Duck Tour
If you aren’t confident in your sailing skills, you can still enjoy spending time on the water by attending an amphibious boat tour. Start with a fun drive around the city, in which you’ll learn some little-known facts about Boston, before splashing into the Charles River for a breezy ride.
- Visit Movie Filming Locations
Many well-known movies and TV shows have been set in Boston—which means that if you know where to look, you can find yourself in the scenery of one of your favorite films! On Location Tours provides both bus and walking tours of famous spots, including the park bench from Good Will Hunting, the workplace in Boston Legal, and the bar from Cheers.
- Go on an Urban Adventure
If you’ve ever wanted to be part of an action movie, Urban Interactive can help you fulfill your wish. Over the course of two hours, you will explore the city, solving “missions” with the help of a specially-loaded iPhone—and various actors planted to help blur the line between fiction and reality!
