“Spring has sprung”
These words always rang in my head throughout childhood and for good reason! Growing up in Washingtonville, NY, spring has always been something that I loved experiencing. The color coming back to the trees, the sun setting later, and the happiness coming back to everyone’s faces after a long cold winter. Spring breathes new life into everything and it’s such a great season because of it; my favorite season to be exact. Back at home, I enjoyed going on bike rides around my neighborhood, going on picnics in different scenic areas, and just soaking in the beautiful weather. Not too hot and not too cold — the perfect sweater weather.
Here in Boston, I love doing much of the same. Here are some of my top recommendations for enjoying spring to the fullest!
- Going on Blue Bikes along the Charles river at sunset! There are lots of blue bikes along the route there so choose one and get peddling!!
- Explore restaurants in the North End with friends! Nothing is better when it’s getting warmer than a nice bowl of pasta and getting cannolis there while eating outside. The North End has such an abundant amount of Italian restaurants and, in general, good places to eat there!
- Have a picnic with friends in the Boston Public Garden or Boston Commons or even on Centennial! A great way to spend a Saturday is going to Trader Joes or Whole Foods and getting fruit and cheeses, and crackers, then walking or taking the T to the Gardens or Commons, then sitting and listening to music and enjoying food with friends. Enjoy a nice charcuterie board in the beautiful weather.
- Do work outside if possible! Being outside and being productive simultaneously is such a great way to get motivated and enjoy the day a little more. Highly suggest it.
