Memorial Day weekend in Boston offers a variety of activities that cater to all interests, from historical tours to outdoor adventures. Here are five exciting things you can do to make the most of your Memorial Day in Boston:

1. Visit the Memorial Day Flag Garden

One of the most poignant tributes you can experience is the Memorial Day Flag Garden on Boston Common. Each year, over 37,000 flags are planted to honor Massachusetts service members who have died in the line of duty since the Revolutionary War. This display, located near the Soldiers and Sailors Monument, is a moving sight and a great place for reflection (Meet Boston) (Boston Central).

2. Explore Boston Harbor Islands

For a more relaxing outing, consider taking a ferry to the Boston Harbor Islands. Spectacle Island offers stunning views of the city skyline and a variety of activities such as hiking, swimming, and picnicking. History enthusiasts can visit Fort Warren on Georges Island, where guided tours offer insights into the island's Civil War history (Quartz Mountain).

3. Enjoy Boston Calling Music Festival

If you’re a music lover, the Boston Calling Music Festival is a must-visit. This three-day event at the Harvard Athletic Complex features an impressive lineup of artists, including Foo Fighters, The Lumineers, and Paramore. Alongside great music, the festival includes food trucks, art installations, and a vibrant atmosphere perfect for kicking off the summer (Meet Boston) (Boston Central).

4. Take a Historical Walking Tour

Dive into Boston's rich history with a self-guided walking tour. Popular routes include the Freedom Trail, which covers 16 historical sites from the American Revolution, and the Black Heritage Trail, which highlights the history of Boston’s 19th-century African American community. These tours provide a fantastic way to learn about the city’s past while enjoying the present (Meet Boston).

5. Visit Museums with Free Admission

On Memorial Day, several museums in Boston offer free admission. The Museum of Fine Arts and the Institute of Contemporary Art are both excellent choices. The MFA features exhibitions like "Hokusai: Inspiration and Influence," while the ICA offers contemporary art displays. These museums provide a culturally enriching experience for visitors of all ages (Boston Central).
