With temperatures expected to hit 70 this weekend, it’s safe to say that spring is finally here. With the weather finally nice enough to shed some layers, people will be heading outdoors in droves this weekend. But where are the best places to get some fresh air in Boston?

To find out, we asked the makers of Foursquare, the location-based app that helps you discover new places using recommendations from a community you trust.

To come up with these rankings, Foursquare used a proprietary algorithm that utilizes three factors:

Visit Popularity — how popular a place is.
Tip Sentiment — whether someone using the app describes a place using positive or negative language.
Explicit Ratings — whether someone gives the place a like, dislike, or neutral rating using the app.
