Summer Activities in July

This month, we list and review different Boston based activities for individuals and families.

It continues to be a difficult year for many. Between demoralizing national and global events, rising inflation, and kids home from school for the summer, the cumulative stress can make the idea of going out challenging or even overwhelming. However, planning activities and exploring your community can serve as an excellent form of self-care for coping with stress, and many activities we are sharing today come at no cost! The act of learning something new, experiencing something like live music, or starting a fitness routine can help improve your well-being considerably.

Listed below are different summer events and activities to consider:

  • Boston Central offers this set of ideas and events to consider for the summer season in the Boston area.
  • Boston Calendar lists a calendar of free local events for the month of July and beyond.
  • Every year, the Boston Department of Parks and Recreation offers their free summer fitness series, click here to check out the calendar.
  • Be sure to check out the Boston Center for Youth and Families Aquatics Programs as well, which include swimming programming for kids and adults alike!
