How to Survive the Boston Heat in the Summer

Summer is all fun in the sun and the summer months in Boston, MA! Boston is notorious for the long winters so Bostonians make sure to enjoy all the sunshine and warm weather in the summer while they can get it. Here are our tips to stay cool this summer!

Embrace the Shade

While it’s great to be outside to enjoy the sunshine and warm weather it can get too warm especially on humid days. If you’re out and about and want to cool off, find a shady spot to sit under. 

Wear Loose-Fitting Clothing

This will help air circulate through your body and let your body release heat. Lighter color clothing will also help you reflect the light instead of absorbing it. 

Drink Lots of Water

It’s easy to get dehydrated in the hot summer months when your body is sweating to maintain its temperature, make sure you’re drinking more water than you normally would. Ice water is also a great way to cool down your body from the inside out. 

Eat something Cool

Nothing screams summer like fresh watermelon or an ice cream cone. Eating something cool will help cool down your body as well. These foods are not only delicious but it’s also a great snack to have while spending time outside. 

Set Sail on Charles River

Get on the water. A nice breeze while being on the water will feel great in the summer for everyone of all ages. It’s a great way to make memories with friends and families.
