Memorial Day weekend is probably one of those holidays everyone is excited about just because it’s going to be a long weekend. Jetsetters, people who were bit by the travel bug, or families who just want a quick getaway, use this time to take a short vacation and relax. But Memorial Day weekend is more than that. This holiday is observed each year in honor and remembrance for all men and women who passed away while serving the United States Armed Forces. See what activities you can do while commemorating this holiday in Boston!
Garden of Flags
Every year thousands of flags are planted in front of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument on Boston Common to commemorate each of the service members who have given their lives to defend the United States and our freedom since the Revolutionary War. Stop by the park and pay your respects to those who served.
Watch the Sox
This Memorial Day weekend why not watch your favorite team (the Red Sox, of course) play against Cleveland Indians at Fenway Park! If you will be watching a game at Fenway, why not add a little more to it by booking a hotel room nearby!
The popular 3-day indie and pop rock music festival is back! Headliners include alt-rockers Twenty-One Pilots, rapper Travis Scott, Tame Impala, and so much more! Head on over to the Harvard Athletic Complex where you will see musical stages, food vendors, and a wide selection of beer and wine!
Did you know that you could enjoy Memorial Day weekend over the water as well? Bring your loved ones with you and take on a boat cruise! If you’re up for a party as well, take your friends with you and sign up for the annual boat party!
Any celebration calls for some good food! Why not use this time to go to your favorite restaurant with you and your loved ones? Or be adventurous and try something new! Enjoy the warm weather and take a stroll around the North End area while being on the lookout for some good food.
