Memorial Day Weekend in Boston
Honor Our Veterans
Memorial Day is a time to honor those members of our country’s military who have died in wars defending our freedom. Each year in Boston, the Massachusetts Military Heroes organization plants 37,000 flags to honor those service members at its Garden of Flags at Boston Common. Flags remain in place through Monday evening for visitors to see.
“Sweet Caroline…BAH, BAH, BAH”
The Boston Red Sox play the Cleveland Indians this Memorial Day at world-famous Fenway Park. Since many Boston residents take advantage of the long weekend to head to local beaches or Martha’s Vineyard, tickets for the game are still available. Visit one of the best-known baseball stadiums and enjoy its traditions as you cheer on the Sox (or the Cleveland Indians)!
Enjoy Live Music
Returning to Harvard University’s Athletic Complex this Memorial Day weekend is the Boston Calling 10 Music Festival, a three-day concert featuring Twenty One Pilots, Travis Scott, and many more. In addition to three music stages, there will be a comedy stage, over 25 food vendors, and many more sights and sounds to take in.
Explore by Land or by Sea
Experience all that Boston can offer by strolling the historic streets with a volunteer guide from Boston By Foot, which offers guided walking tours of Boston’s neighborhoods and Freedom Trail. Pop into the Museum of Fine Arts on its free admission day on Monday. Or rent a bike and take a group tour of the city – with so many residents out of town, the streets will be more open for navigating (and great exercise). Viewing Boston from the Charles River is an option for those who would rather sail along and see the sights. The Charles Riverboat Company offers sunset and sightseeing tours as does the Classic Harbor Line, which also offers brunch cruises.
Traveling anywhere around Memorial Day weekend will always come with its share of hassles. Take the stress out of your transportation and book a ride with Dav El | BostonCoach from Boston’s Logan Airport to and around the city, and enjoy a long weekend in one of the U.S.’s most historic cities.
