Cheap Things to Do This Week in Boston for June 19-23, 2017!

Free Things to Do in Boston This WeekI’m introducing a new weekly post for the summer– Cheap Things to Do This Week. The post will highlight all the fun and (almost) free things to do during the week in Boston– hopefully I don’t miss too many events because there’s a lot of them this summer.

I’ve been wanting to do this series for awhile now but it’s always been intimidating since there’s SO many fun things to do in a week! However, I figured what better way to experiment with something new than a month or two before having another baby, right ;)

As we get deep into summer, this post may be more of a template of all the great reoccurring and weekly events, and may change a little bit.

Please make sure to do your due-diligence to make sure an event is happening before heading out– especially if the weather is dicey.
