Fun things to do in and around Boston
There’s so much to do here that it’s hard to know where to begin, but we think we’ll try. For starters, get out and explore our picturesque stretch along the Charles River (by bike, kayak or on foot), and get to know Cambridge, fueled by its rich history and colorful marine past. Then cross into downtown Boston, beloved for its abundance of sensational galleries and museums, magnificent architecture, delicious restaurants and welcoming bars—yes, even those where it feels like everybody knows your name. Get inspired as you stroll the campus of nearby universities like Harvard and MIT, as well as other hubs of innovation and discovery. Popular destinations here range from Beacon Hill and the Museum of Science to TD Garden and Fenway Park, where Red Sox fans bring an infectious passion that you, too, might just catch.
