5 Fun Summer Activities: Just an 8 Minute Walk (or Less) Away

Howdy Folks,

At Landmark Boston, we love summer and we’re sure you do, to0!

Summertime around Boston is a beautiful time of year. Boston, Cambridge and Watertown, as well as all the surrounding towns, offer  many activities for you, your friends and your family. The area is so much fun, it’s beautiful and the best part of all, everything is just a short walk away. We have come up with some of our favorite things to do in the area. All of which are no more than an 8 minute walk away: You can’t beat that!

Well, we hope you like the list.

Check back soon for more information on our Beautiful Waterfront Townhouses located on the Charles river.

Talk to you soon,
Rob Stella
