There is the typical Red Sox game or going for a walk down Newbury Street. There is much more to Boston then what TripAdvisor tells you.
This past week students have moved in and getting settled to the Boston city life. For many of us we have never been to this side of the United States. If you ask around you will be given typical fun ideas that just don’t hit the spot. Here are some great fun activities for you and your friends to do during your time here in the city.
1. Go Shopping At Bodega
Don’t judge a book by its cover. What may look like a 7Eleven is actually a designer retail store. You walk in and head towards the vending machine. What you will find is not soda but a door that will slide open into a slick sportswear boutique.
2. Brooklyn Boulders
Do you seek fun and adventure? Are you athletic or even someone who likes to climb than this is the place for you. Located in Somerville Ma, Brooklyn Boulders is a 40,000 sq. ft. rock climbing facility.
3. Cambridge Center Roof Top Garden
Also know as “The Secret Garden”, Located on top of The Marriott in Kendal Square is a place unlike any other in the city. Take a break and unwind in the sun. You can enjoy a wonderful garden 5 stories up in the air. You don’t even realize you are on a building. The bushes are so tall and green that you think you’re walking through the Boston Garden.
4. Sam Adams Brewery Tour
Do you like to drink? Do you like to drink for free? We are all colleges students so of course we do. Take a tour of the Sam Adams Brewery and have a beer tasting. Just give a $2 donation to taste. Make sure you show up earlier then the tour times because they do get very busy!
5. Kayak On The Charles River
The Summer maybe over but we still have a few weeks left of the hot weather. Paddle Boston offers you a way to kayak on the Charles River. There are not many rivers in Boston but this is your best bet to get out in the sun. Hurry! In a month the weather will be a lot colder.
6. See The Boston Harbor
Want a day out of the city but don’t want to go far? Check out the Boston Harbor Islands. Take a ferry-boat of the mainland and get a little taste of Boston history. You can tour lighthouses, go kayaking, and enjoy some live music.
7. Farmers Markets
Many of us get tired of eating at the caf. Sometimes we head over to Wholefoods or Trader Joes. There is nothing like getting fresh harvest from a farmers market. You’re in luck becasuse Boston has many of them this time of year. You will not find fresher, tastier food then at a farmers market.
