The cold winters of the northeast can be brutal but they make way for some really vivid seasons as the tulips begin to bloom. You will start to see people leaving their coats at home and taking tours of the Boston Harbor, floating on the Swan Boats in the Public Garden, and cheering at baseball games in Fenway Park. That’s not all there is to do in Boston in spring. No matter if you’re on vacation, studying at one of its prestigious universities, or from New England, it’s time to get outside for the best season to experience Boston.
