It’s crazy to think that only a few months ago we were spending countless hours shoveling out our driveways and stocking the fireplace, now we are more than half way done with summer! Even though the month of July is coming to a close, August is a fantastic month to be in the Boston area. Food festivals, outdoor performances, nature walks, sporting events, and much more, August is the perfect month to get up and go! Via Boston-Discovery-Guide.com
