1. People-watching on Boston Common

    Corralled by bustling, commercial Tremont Street, stately Beacon Street, and genteel Charles Street, Boston Common lies at the confluence of three disparate worlds. Whatever the season, a stroll through the common yields a veritable cross section of the city’s residents.

  2. Pilgrimage to Revere Beach

    The first hot day of summer sparks a massive northbound migration via the MBTA blue line to the popular Revere Beach. Salsa music blares from passing cars on Ocean Avenue, soccer players stake out their pitches, and sun worshippers jostle for space at the shore break.

  3. Second-guessing the Red Sox

    As soon as their baseball team opens spring training in March, Red Sox fans fill the talk-show airwaves with vehement assaults on the skills and intelligence of the manager. If the Sox lead the league in October, the manager is hailed as a genius. If they fall short, there’s no place to hide.

  4. Summer Sundays on Memorial Drive

    Closed to vehicular traffic on summer Sundays, Cambridge’s twisting, riverside Memorial Drive becomes a blur of rollerbladers, bicyclists, and joggers.

  5. Biking the Emerald Necklace

    Taking in all 6 miles (9.5 km) of the Emerald Necklace is best accomplished on a bicycle. The well-maintained trails lead riders from the wooded environs of Arnold Arboretum to the Back Bay Fens and onward to the Public Garden.

  6. Boating on the Charles

    Dawn on the Charles River Basin sees local rowing crews taking advantage of the water’s glass-smooth stillness. By late morning, a breeze kicks up, beckoning fleets of small sailboats. When the wind diminishes toward sunset, canoeists arrive to enjoy the water’s renewed calm.

  7. Skating on the Frog Pond

    Few scenes capture quintessential Boston better than a snow-covered Boston Common with figures twirling and sliding on the Frog Pond ice Rent some skates and partake in the scene, then refuel in the cozy warming hut.

  8. Watching Quincy Market Street Performers

    Even if you’ve had lunch and shopped until your shoe soles are worn out, a trip to Faneuil Hall Marketplace is worthwhile if only to watch the street performances. Jugglers, magicians, and other acts are surrounded by crowds of onlookers, all rapt with amazement and amusement.

  9. Tango by Moonlight

    For five or six summer nights, the Tango Society brings a bit of Buenos Aires to the Weeks Foot Bridge, inviting some 200 couples to summon the passion within and dance the tango from moonrise ‘til midnight.

  10. Wedding Gown Shopping at Filene’s Basement

    While it is closed for renovations, Filene’s Basement will hold its “Running of the Brides” at other locations. These sales are usually held once or twice a year. The prospect of getting hold of a designer gown at a fraction of the cost drives brides into a frenzy.
