Readers: Send us your best summer 2021 photos

Summer 2021 is about living our best lives. 

We want to see your best moments of summer 2021.

The sun may not always be shining, but after last summer was dominated by the coronavirus pandemic, Bostonians are taking advantage of the season rain or shine. Summer 2021 is about living our best lives. 

We’re taking full advantage of our communities by dining out, going to bars, visiting friends and family, and having the fun experiences many of us haven’t had in more than a year. 

Have you already headed to a nearby beach with your family to cool off during Friday’s hot and humid weather?

Or maybe you packed into a bar to watch Italy’s 3-2 shootout win with your friends during the Euro 2020 game.

Maybe you’re enjoying the return of live events and festivities around the city.
