If you’re visiting New England, Boston is such a great city to visit during any time of year. The Summer especially.  From the great food, shopping, scenery to education values. You always think when traveling you end up spending hundreds. That’s not the case. You can visit Boston on a budget too, any budget!

When traveling to Boston you can always find budget friendly activities for the kids and family. You can even find activities geared towards the single life too.

Boston Duck Tours:

These are a great way to get to know the whole city. You’ll visit the whole city of Boston and even visit the most historic landmarks. Each guided tour is normally 80 minutes which includes 60 minutes on land and 20 minutes chartered by water. They also have three departures so no need to rush to get to the stop. A great way to start off your travels in Boston.

Faneuil Hall Market Place:

Looking for food, shopping, and entertainment? This is your local destination. You get the best of all three. If you love Boston so much you can even grab some Boston memorabilia as well. It’s a five-minute walk from tons attractions like The New England Aquarium and The Children’s Museum which are great if you’re visiting with children. You also have access to boat tours and the one and only Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox. Looking for tickets? You can find great deals on StubHub!


If beer is on your mind you’re in the right place.

Boston is home to some of the best breweries. The Harpoon offers a guided tour which runs every 20 minutes based on their hours of operation. Normally each tour is about one hour long and costs about $5. Not a bad deal!

Other Options:

If you love to walk around then The Boston Common is just what you need. Running off that energy, food or just want to breathe in that fresh air. During the warm season months they have the wading pond and in the Winter they offer ice skating at this location.

The Esplanade is one of Boston’s greatest places to go during Fourth of July and Summer outings. It’s right on the water and they always have so many activities. Anything from yoga to dockside parties. Perfect for a nightly walk or a morning run.

Visiting Boston can definitely be an adventure on its own without regretting what you spent to get there.
