The summer is a great time to get out and explore other parts of Massachusetts. The sun is shining. The breeze is cool. People are laughing and smiling. Everyone wants to be outside.
During the week be sure to explore Boston after class. Take a walk. Get an ice cream. Sit in a patch of grass. Chat with friends and strangers. Everyone is friendly in Boston in the summer months. But, on the weekends, leave the city and explore the surrounding areas.
