National Eat Outside Day

In celebration of National Eat Outside Day on August 31st, we put together a list of some of our favorite restaurants with outdoor dining spaces in Dorchester. Grab a friend or two and spend the afternoon soaking up the sunshine.

Moving Day

It’s almost September 1st and you know what that means – it’s Moving Day in Boston! The coming week is sure to promise lots of double parked cars and moving vans, “no parking” moving permits (which residents will ignore) and trash galore! If you have issues with trash or parking violations, you are highly encourage to use the City’s 311 app. The City of Boston also has a handy guide to Moving Day here!

Another Turnaround

The USS Constitution will conduct a turnaround on Friday morning around 9:30am. Castle Island is the perfect spot to watch. Treat yourself to some Sully’s while you’re out there!

Take a Tour

Check out Fort Independence at Castle Island! The Castle Island Association (CIA) has been giving free guided tours of Fort Independence on Castle Island for over thirty years. Enjoy a tour every Saturday, Sunday, and on national holidays through the summer from noon till 3:30pm. You can also enjoy a sunset tour on Thursday at 6pm.

Run the MR8K

Lace up your sneakers and run! The Martin Richard Foundation, in partnership with the Boston Bruins Foundation,will host the second annual MR8K to be held on Labor Day – Monday, September 2, 2019. The MR8K race is an annual 5-mile (8K) race that this year, will take place at Warrior Ice Arena at Boston Landing, the practice facility of the Boston Bruins!  Register here!
