There are so many fun activities happening in Boston! Whether you're looking for some wallet-friendly fun, to get outside and enjoy the summer weather, or a chance to hop inside and beat the heat—there's an event for you! Kick off the 4th of July festivities early in Braintree, find your inner zen at family yoga in Lincoln, or go stargazing and camping in Lexington—all for free!

You can also meet a super curious monkey named George at a very special story hour, tour the MFA outside sculptures with a baby-friendly crew, or dance the day/night away at a music festival.
