Boston, MA - May 1: People stop to admire flowers in Christopher Columbus Park in Boston on May 1, 2022. (Photo by Pat Greenhouse/The Boston Globe via Getty Images)

Today is March 1st. Granted we still have a few weeks left of winter (technically) BUT seeing as how today is the first day of March, it’s only fitting we can start to make plans for the spring. Now, keep in mind, we are still looking at some winter weather this weekend and the temperatures aren’t exactly screaming spring YET but it’s never to early to start making plans for when the flowers will be in full bloom.

We are taking a look at several things to do outside when the weather is warm enough to do so. These places are favorites of Bostonians and tourists alike. There are also some fun events that are taking place in Boston this spring so we’ve taken those into account as well. So pack a hoodie (because you really don’t know about this unpredictable weather) and get ready for a fun day out this spring in Boston.
