Summer is best spent making the best of sunshine and warm weather while enjoying the freedom to run, play, and explore in the great outdoors. Fortunately, residents of the Seaport apartments at NEMA Boston are ideally located near some of the city’s finest outdoor destinations like Fan Pier Park and Seaport Common, where they can stroll while taking in fresh air, green grass, and views of the Boston Harbor.

At the heart of the Boston Harbor sits Fan Pier Park—a manicured grassy stretch with seating areas, benches, fire pits, and tables ideal for family picnics or lounging with companions or a new bestseller. Visitors can spend an afternoon watching boats sail along the harbor or an evening jogging along the convenient pedestrian path. The evening also provides spectacular views of the city skyline and the water as it reflects the dazzling summer sunsets.

Another favorite neighborhood spot is the iconic Harborwalk, a linear park that stretches more than 40 miles along the shoreline. The Harborwalk is the product of a private-public collaboration that links together parks, public art, historical exhibits, and other amenities around the harbor. It connects the Seaport neighborhood to the rest of the city, too, from the North End to Downtown, South Boston, and beyond, but NEMA residents don’t need to venture far to take advantage of its scenic charms and serene summer breezes.

Meanwhile, Seaport Common offers green space and ample seating areas for informal gatherings and meals, as well as a walking path for an afternoon stroll with a friend or four-legged companion. The Common also features events year-round—from tree lightings to outdoor workout classes, which include everything from yoga and barre to athletic conditioning under the “Seaport Sweat” fitness series. On Saturdays, visitors can browse the local seasonal produce, meat, seafood, and prepared foods on offer at the Boston Public Market, all fresh and convenient for a post-workout meal at home or a snack along the waterfront.

Whether residents of the luxury apartments for rent at NEMA Boston are purely interested in walking in the sun and fresh air, motivated by the beauty of the harbor views and sunsets, or attracted to public activities, grassy spots, and local food vendors, the Seaport neighborhood in the summer season provides a wealth of options in one of the country’s most walkable cities.
