Tourist Information
Boston is one of the oldest settlements in the country rich with history, culture and art. As the weather turns nice, this New England city bursts to life. The locals bask in the newfound sunshine and the excitement is palatable.

For the locals, spring in Boston really begins with the first pitch at Fenway Park. One by one, you’ll see the shops on Boston’s Newbury Street prop their doors open and the bars and restaurants set up their outdoor patios. A walk through Boston’s Public Garden is a must when the flowers bloom. Take a moment to wander through Boston’s distinct neighborhoods, taste unforgettable cuisine, visit one of our museums or theaters, attend a sporting event, or take advantage of the 75 shops and restaurants located just steps from our meeting location at the Fairmont Copley Plaza.

Climate in May
May temperatures range from 50° – 67°F

What to Wear
Spring is a welcomed season as temperatures start to rise. The weather can be unpredictable. Wear layers that can be removed or added and bring an umbrella.

Day: If you are touring, you will want to wear comfy shoes for walking and a jacket. Most tourist venues do not have dress codes, but check to be sure.

Evening: In the evening, consider your agenda. The theater tends to be dressier and some upscale restaurants require jackets. It can get chilly in the evening.
