Summer Time Fun Just Blocks From One Greenway

Since 2008, the 1.5 mile, 15 acre The Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway has been one of Boston’s most popular destinations for catching sun, grabbing a bite to eat or attending one of the greenway’s events like Boston Calling, Berklee’s Summer Concerts or the Farmer’s Market. Since this wonderful space happens to be just one block from One Greenway, we wanted to highlight some of the great events happening this summer! There are over 300 free events per year, so we’ve narrowed it down to our top five favorites:

Boston Calling Block Parties

What better way to kick off your Thursday night and the coming weekend than by some catching up and coming musicians from around the Boston area? No matter what music you’re into, there’s sure to be an act playing that’ll excite your ears. Dewey Square is just a seven minute walk from One Greenway.

Food of Rose Kennedy Greenway

When it comes to finding delicious eats around One Greenway, look no further than the Rose Kennedy Greenway. Craving street style tacos? North East of the Border is serving up some of the best street tacos around and their intricately painted truck is sure to catch your eye. Maybe you’re looking for the simplicity of a little chicken and rice; luckily The Chicken & Rice Guys are dishing out gyros and plates. The food trucks of the Greenway stretch from the North End to the Gates of Chinatown so they’re easily accessible from One Greenway by foot or by the Orange line depending on the schedule.
