1. See Fireworks and Music During the 4th of July!

The 4th of July is a great day to celebrate your American pride. Boston offers a bunch of free events that allow all Americans to celebrate their independence! You can spend your day riding around the Charles River just enjoying the smell of freedom on a bike, or you can walk the freedom trail during the day and go to the Boston POPS concert that begins at 8:00pm and is followed by fireworks at 10:00pm.

2. Family Movies at the Hatch Shell

At 8:15 on the last three Fridays of July, the Hatch Shell on Boston’s Esplanade will be showing family movies for free. A great place to have a date night and picnic with your family and friends while the kids can soak in the outdoors and watch beloved family films like The Emoji Movie, Elf, and Cars 3.

3. Shakespeare on the Common

You can spend your night watching a free performance of Shakespeare on the common. Starting July 18, on Tuesdays through Saturdays at 8 PM, the Commonwealth Shakespeare Company will perform Richard III. The Commonwealth Shakespeare Company is known to make plays enjoyable and accessible by putting on contemporary performances open to the public.

4. Boston Pizza Festival

What’s better than pizza? Unlimited pizza! The Boston Pizza Festival will take place on July 7th and 8th. A ticket to this event includes live music and unlimited pizza samples. Want to take kids to this event? Great, children 4-10 get a discount and children 3 and under get in for free!

5. Bike Boston!

Bike! On top of the history in Boston, there is a lot to see from the Charles River to the Arnold Arboretum or Fenway Park to the Old North Church. We are firmly of the opinion that Boston is best experienced, seen, and navigated by bicycle. With all the new bike lanes in Boston, biking is a safe, efficient, healthy, and cheap alternative to driving and walking.

And rather than drive into Boston and have to deal with expensive parking and annoying traffic, you can access any of the events above with a bike rental from Urban AdvenTours! Visit us to rent a bike or join us on tour!
