4th of July Weekend In Boston

If you’re not escaping the city for the holiday weekend, here are a few things to check-out in the city this weekend.

  1. Red Sox Games 

What better way to spend the Fourth of July weekend than at the ball park watching America’s oldest sport. The Red Sox are slated to play the LA Angeles in this weekend’s home game series. With the Sox set for first pitch at 1:35 p.m. on July 4 against the Rangers. Below is a list of dates and times of this weekend’s Sox’s games.

July 1, Red Sox vs. Angeles @ 7:10 p.m.

July 2, Red Sox vs. Angeles @ 7:15 p.m.

July 3, Red Sox vs. Angeles @ 1:35 p.m.

July 4, Red Sox vs. Rangers @ 1:35 p.m.


  1. Freedom Trail

While spending the weekend in one of America’s historic cities take time out of the day to go on the Freedom Trail Tour. The Freedom Trail is a 2.5 mile, red –line that leads guest to 16 historical sites in Boston. Enjoy the sites and people of Boston as you step back in time with a local colonial Bostonian.

  1. Boston Common/Public Garden

This weather is looking perfect for the holiday weekend! What better way to not spend a dime and enjoy the Common and the Public Garden. Whether its people watching, lying out on the Common, taking photos or feeding the ducks it’s going to be a great weekend to take advantage of Boston’s free parks.

  1. Swans

Located in Boston Public Garden, the Swan Boats are a Boston attraction you can’t miss. Whether it’s your first time visiting the city or a local, the Swan Boats are enjoyable to young and old alike. The Swan Boats are open daily during the summer from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., with ticket prices set at $3.50 for adults and $2 for kids. I would suggest arriving early as the line gets long fast!


  1. Sea Port Bar Scene

Looking to celebrate America’s Birthday? My top pick to celebrate is in Boston’s Seaport! Below is a list of bars located in the Seaport:

  • The Atlantic Beer Garden
  • Whiskey Priest
  • Lookout Rooftop & Bar
  • Barking Crab
  • Lawn on D
  • The Envoy Hotel
  • Legal Harborside


  1. Boston Pop’s

The Boston Pop’s will be taking pace on July 3 & 4 at The Hatch Shell with guest appearances from Little Big Town, Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas. On July 3, enjoy entertainment from the Boston Pop’s with a concert beginning at 8:30p.m. (no fireworks). On July 4, gates open at 9 a.m. and the entertainment begins at 8:30 p.m. with a Boston Pop’s performance. Fireworks beginning at 10:30 p.m., I recommend getting to The Hatch Shell early as the lawn fills up fast!

Remember to be safe & responsible 🙂
