As Boston thaws out from a long winter, the options to get out and about become more alluring to lucky residents of the NEMA Boston Seaport rentals. These amenity-filled luxury Boston condos are the ultimate locale, thanks to world-class design, state-of-the-art technology, and comfortable features from the moment you set foot inside. And they are also a great base for exploration of all the warm-weather activities the surrounding area has to offer.
The only problem you will have this spring is: what to do and where to go? Never fear! We've gathered a list that you and your family will certainly want to check off as the season kicks off.
So, here is our early-spring guide to classic New England activities that are a must-do.
A simple stroll around the Seaport reveals myriad ways in which Boston's history is tied to the waters that surround it. Take a deeper dive into those waters—and those from around the world—with a visit to the New England Aquarium. With just a 20-minute walk or an even quicker Uber ride, you and your family will be soaking in exhibits that highlight aquatic animals from Boston Harbor to the Amazon. There's even a virtual tour option to enjoy from the comfort of home at NEMA Boston. Whether it's watching African penguins hop, gather, and play or spending hours gazing through glass at schools of fish circling, carve out some time to take in all the aquatic life that's on display. Be certain to book as soon as you can!
Need your fix of international fine art? There's no better place to take it in than the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Book your tickets in advance here too. You'll almost feel as if you're viewing the works of European masters like Sargent and Botticelli in situ as you enter the main building that is modeled after a grand Venetian plaza, with seasonal flower displays that show the artistry of nature. A current exhibition of note is Painting in Motion by Shen Wei, featuring dreamy abstract works that are at points both unsettling and deeply soothing.
For a sensory experience for the eyes and mind, head to the Museum of Science, where you'll learn not only about what has shaped the modern world via technological innovation but what's ahead. There's something for people of all ages to learn, but kids are the ones who will really be amazed. Watch as their eyes light up and see the gears in their young minds turn when they learn about everything from dinosaurs to the science behind their favorite Pixar films.
A Walk in the Park
Taking in Boston's verdant side is one of the simple pleasures of spring. Thankfully, there are plenty of options for outdoor adventure. Pack a picnic and blanket to enjoy at Boston Common, where you might be able to hop on one of the famous swan boats. Take a meditative saunter through the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway or enjoy the riotous splendor of springtime blooms at Harvard's Arnold Arboretum. Or stay home and still enjoy the great outdoors in NEMA Boston's Garden by the lobby.
