Finally, the first day of summer, the weather is warmer, the kids are (almost) out of school, everyone’s eager to soak up some rays, kick back and relax. In honor of the official first day we’ve pulled together what might just be, the perfect summer day in Dot.
8:00am – The Vietnamese Cold Brew at Reign Drink Lab is not only delicious, but will definitely give you all the energy you need to seize the day. If coffee isn’t your style, check out their Nitro Thai Tea or Mango Green Tea.
8:30am – Breakfast at Caffe Zia Gianna. Since the weather’s nice (finally!) enjoy the 20min walk down Dot. Ave. We recommend the Salina Breakfast Sandwich, and maybe a pastry too!
10:00am – Hit the beach! It just wouldn’t be a proper summer day in Dot if you didn’t swing by Malibu beach to soak up some sun.
3:00pm – Take a break from the heat and head to Chill on Park for an ice cream cone. Be sure to ask about their frappe of the month!
4:00pm – Get those legs moving! As the day starts to cool down, take a walk, run, bike or skate down the Neponset River Greenway where you’ll enjoy shady stretches of trail and views of the Neponset River.
5:00pm – Grab a drink at Yellow Door. Their seasonal drink menu is all about those coveted summer flavors. We recommend the Garden Jugo or if you’re with a group, their house-made Sangria pitches.
7:00pm – End the day on the patio at Dbar, known for their seasonal fare. We just can’t get enough of their cioppino mussels and their pan roasted Cod. Because after all, nothing says summer in New England like some seafood!
