Feruary Overview

February is still one of the coldest and snowiest winter months in Boston. Temperatures range between lows of 24°F (-4°C) and highs of 39°F (4°C). There are 11 inches (30 cm) of snowfall to be expected in February. The water temperature of the Atlantic Ocean has now reached its absolute low of 38°F (3°C) too.

Take a boat cruise to get a great view of the Boston skyline whilst staying cosy inside the boat. Visit the TD Garden stadion for some great indoor sport and many more other events. Check out the event of the year in Chinatown - the Chinese New Year Parade.
