Closing down city streets to car traffic isn't just for Memorial Drive anymore (though, Cambridge's popular car-free weekly event is now running until the middle of November).
The City of Boston is kicking off a series of events called "Circle the City" as part of their Open Streets Initiative. Come out this summer to walk, bike, dance, and roll on open, car-free streets in and between Boston area parks! Circle The City is free and open to people of all ages.
