Spring: Lilac Sunday

On one Sunday every May, the Arnold Arboretum celebrates the scores of lilac bushes that line its paths. Stuff your nose in the fragrant bushes, learn more about the plants and how to care for them and take a picnic lunch (Lilac Sunday is the one day a year when the arboretum allows picnicking). If you're adventurous, climb to the top of Peters Hill for great views of the surrounding area and downtown Boston.

Admission is free. The best way to get there from downtown hotels is to take the Orange Line to Forest Hills - the station is basically right outside one arboretum gate.
