Being a college town, Boston does a good job of catering to crews of pals heading out to enjoy an evening in the city. On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, groups in Boston made up of coeds, post-grads, and young professionals roam the streets in search of fun.
The Quincy Market vicinity and Fenway neighborhood are particularly alluring areas for Boston groups, with a host of bars, clubs, and other venues that cater to collective outings. The Emerald Necklace park system that spreads throughout the city – and includes Boston Common and the Public Garden, as well as the Back Bay Fens and Franklin Park – provides lots of outdoor space for ball games, picnics, and outdoor concerts.
Many restaurants in the Back Bay and Waterfront neighborhoods are particularly good for groups in Boston, as they feature family-style seating and a lively atmosphere perfect for a gathering of friends or coworkers.
Many Boston museums also encourage groups to come out and mingle. Events like ICA's First Fridays, the Isabella Stewart Gardner's Gardner After Hours series, and the MFA's First Fridays, give groups of Bostonians a chance to meet other art-loving intellectual types.
