When to go

  • Boston is a city with 4 distinct seasons, making it a great destination for any season lover.
  • January-March is when the winter hits the hardest. Expect very cold temperatures and lots of snow!
  • April-May are beautiful in Boston because the Spring is starting and you can see all of the trees around the city starting to bloom
  • May-early June is a busy time of year because of graduations and other major events.  The city is usually flooded with visitors around this time.
  • June-August is Summer in Boston, which can bring both the heat and the humidity (thanks to the harbor).
  • August-September marks another busy "student rush" with hoards of students and their families moving them into the schools around Boston.
  • September-November is when Fall is in full swing, which means foliage season.  The trees are turning spectacular colors making this a must-see destination for fall lovers.
  • December is when the city starts to get cold.  The amount of visitors starts to slow down a bit, but there are still plenty of holiday activities to find around the city.
