There is SO much to see and do in Boston in June!! Enjoy the perfect weather, gardens & trees in gorgeous bloom, the busy Harbor, and a host of popular activities and special events. You’ll have a hard time deciding what to do. Whether you’re a new visitor to the Cradle of Liberty or local Patriot, there are a few fantastic must-do’s I highly recommend for you.

First up is the 29th annual Scooper Bowl! This “all you can eat” ice cream extravaganza benefits the cancer-fighting Jimmy Fund. From June 7th to 9th, skip on over to the Boston City Hall Plaza to enjoy ice cream, frozen yogurt, and sorbet from nine of the nation’s leading ice cream companies. If you are lucky, I will not have devoured all of the deliciousness by the time you get there.

If you’re more of a chocolate connoisseur, treat your taste buds to our Harvard Square Chocolate Walking Tour in Boston! If you’ve never taken a decadent chocolate walking tour, you’re in for a real treat (lots of them actually). A friendly, outgoing expert guide will whisk you off into a world of exotic imports, closely guarded recipes and intimate tastings. The destinations are always carefully selected from the very finest the city has to offer – artisan chocolatiers, celebrated restaurants and more. No matter how much you already love chocolate, you’ll appreciate it more deeply than ever after indulging in these tours. Life is too short to not appreciate the little sweet things, right? ; )

Boston is well known as an historic Old Towne, but it really is a modern city as well, striving for respect and unity. From June 3rd through June 12th, enjoy a colorful fun-filled festival that embraces the community’s diversity, encourages change, and celebrates progress in society at Boston Pride Week! Family, friends, and neighbors will join together for 9 days of activities for everyone, from the the first Flag Raising at City Hall to the Parade to the Block Party. If you’ve never ventured to the Boston Pride Week, you are seriously missing out!

Lovely day for a picnic, isn’t it? Take a sightseeing tour of the beautiful Cape Cod area on our Seashore & Lighthouse Tour with Picnic Lunch from Cape Cod!

Celebrate the 32nd Annual Hong Kong Boston Dragon Boat Races and Festival on June 11th & 12th! Watch brightly colored dragon boats race down the Charles River between JFK Street and the Western Avenue Bridge. Don’t miss the traditional Chinese Dragon Dance, martial arts demonstrations, Chinese dance and music, traditional Japanese drumming, and various Asian performances. There will be plenty of Asian foods at the festival to enjoy as well!

For the most magnificent view of Boston’s skyline, get out into the Harbor yourself! On our Boston Dinner Cruise you will enjoy a sightseeing boat tour around the harbor, the delicious grand buffet, and an energetic floor show to entertain you. Relax, dance to one of the best DJ’s in town, and stroll the decks of the ship under a canopy of stars. It’s a dazzling good time and the most exciting way to see Boston.

Then from June 29th-July 4th, join the city in celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Harborfest! Boston is definitely a favorite yearly destination for 4th of July festivities.
