Looking for things to do in Boston? Well, there’s that little Red Sox thing, but if baseball doesn’t do it for you (keep that to yourself!) the social scene keeps on kicking with plenty of things to do and outdoor activities, from jogging along the Charles River and brunching on Tremont Street to visiting historical plazas and landmarks like Paul Revere’s house or the Bunker Hill Monument.
Usually bustling no matter the season, Boston really flourishes once the weather warms up and everyone descends on Cattle Island beach to roll in the sand, the Boston Common park to have a picnic, or do their best Tom Brady imitations while playing flag football along the Esplanade.
The city’s famed red brick Freedom Trail leads walkers past fifteen historical landmarks including the USS Constitution and the State House, while tourists are practically obligated to stop in for a pint at the Bull and Finch bar before posing for a photo in front of its façade, made famous in the 80s as the face of the bar on the sitcom Cheers.
There is no Happy Hour in Boston, but that doesn’t stop the endless array of neighborhood watering holes from enticing with great food and drink specials, so those heading out into the Boston nightlife can easily start with a few cheap pints.
If shopping is on the radar, shoppers can peruse the high-end designer boutiques on chic Newbury Street, or check out the handmade goods and farmers’ market fare at the SoWa Market on Sundays, perfect for finding both an outfit for a night out and the ingredients for homemade clam chowder.
