Boston is a great city for walking.
Newbury Street is a pleasant walk for art lovers.
This walk can begin in Boston Common with a walk through the Boston Public Garden and continuing on to Newbury Street. On tree-lined Newbury street you find a mile of boutiques, fine art galleries and sidewalk cafés.
The Copley Society, America's oldest art association, will display exhibits that once included the work of John Singer Sargent, Claude Monet, Winslow Homer and James McNeil Whistler.
There are many private galleries as well, including the Wentworth, Dyansen, and the Galerie d'Orsay.
Near the Copley Society find the Guild of Boston Artists and their display rooms.
One block to the south, Copley Square offers the Boston Public Library where John Singer Sargent painted a huge mural in the 1890s.
Continue walking west on Huntington Avenue to the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
June brings warm days for boat tours to Cape Cod and to the islands of Boston Harbor.
June In Boston, Perfect Weather
For Boston Walking Trips.
Just a short walk west from the Boston Museum of Fine Arts find the Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum and a collection of Renaissance art displayed in a four-story Venetian-style villa.
The museum was once the home of Isabella Stuart Gardner who held lavish turn-of-the-century dinner parties that included Sargent, Whistler, Julia Ward Howe and Henry James.
Boston's June days enjoy sunshine until 8:30 in the evening with 16 hours of daylight. Boston Swan boats make the rounds in the Public Garden during the day while Boston celebrates the evenings with concerts on the Charles River.
The trails along the Charles River are great for walking. The area near the Public Garden is the site of the annual Fourth of July concert and fireworks.
At the harbor, whale watch season is in full swing and the ocean water has warmed enough for visits to the Boston Harbor Island where forts and beaches, bird watching, hiking, and picnicking are offered.
Boston offers a walkway along the harbor that includes the Contemporary art museum and the Little Italy in the North End.
