This time of year definitely Merikatu (From cafe Carusel to Kaivopuisto. And Esplanad. Bulevardi is also one on my favourites, with maybe even better cafe's than esplanad.

Walk through Esplande Park. It is lined with all sorts of shops and cafes. This time of year, it is teeming with people. If you are lucky, you may hear a live band in the park, near Market Square.

I liked Temppeliaukio, the Church in the Rock a lot. Also the museum of modern art, the Kiasma usually has very good installations. I also enjoyed learning about the idiosyncracy of Finnish cities; that you can see in the bigger libraries because there may be 3d printers and musical instuments, and lots of activities for kids in general.

Another great place is Suomelninna island, where you can get by public transport HSL ferry.

I'd go to Eira & Punavuori areas in southern older Helsinki. You can take tram 3 and stop where ever you find interesting.
