Summer Life in Boston

The BU campus is perfectly situated to enjoy both the charm and beauty of the city and its cultural and recreational attractions. Boston University stretches along the banks of the Charles River, making it easy to enjoy activities such as sailing, jogging, and sunning - yet it is only minutes from the downtown theatre, shopping, government, and financial districts. A short ride on the streetcar brings one to the elegant shops of Newbury Street and Copley Square, the sporting events at Fenway Park, or the endless diversions of the restored Faneuil Hall Market Place. Below is a list of some activities you might enjoy.
