While winter may not feel like the best time to do a lot of activities, it’s important to not let your life suffer from the cold weather. Living in a cold place means that you know it can be a bit of a challenge to find a fun winter-worthy pastime. Luckily, here in Boston, there are a ton of great things to do to keep yourself entertained.
The Freedom Trail
History buffs will enjoy taking this stroll on the two-and-a-half-mile route through the city. Along the way, you’ll learn about the American Revolution, visit museums, churches, cemeteries, and other locations that are relevant to the making of the United States of America. The route is outdoors, so make sure to dress warmly. Don’t forget to go inside where you can to warm up a bit and get some great historical information.
Faneuil Hall Marketplace
One of the most respected establishments in all of Boston, the marketplace has long been a center for political discourse and intellectual stimulation. Created in 1742, this beautiful historic site is located in a wonderful brick building that represents the architecture of the time. Currently, it serves as a retail space, featuring several options for food and shopping. Don’t forget to take notice of the classic cobblestone walkways for a blast to the past.
Boston Symphony Orchestra
If you would rather hunker down in a warm indoor space for a couple of hours instead of meandering the outdoors, check out the Boston Symphony Orchestra. They offer a jam-packed program all year round, so you can rest assured that there will be some kind of performance going when you visit. You’ll adore the incredible symphony hall that boasts unparalleled acoustics.
Don’t miss out on the chance to see the city of Boston from a birds’ eye view. The Skywalk Observatory can be found on the 50th floor of the Prudential Building and provides visitors with an unmatched 360-degree view of the city. Here, you can learn about Boston’s history while you check out the frozen Charles River and quaint snow-covered rooftops.
As with any major city, there is no shortage of museums, and Boston’s are truly some of the best. If you are visiting with your young ones, the Boston Children’s Museum offers a multitude of opportunities for children to learn through play and exploration.
