Crisp air, apple pie, and leaf-peeping are upon us. Whether you are a seasoned Bostonian or from across the globe, we can help you make the most of your fall in Boston.
Harvard's Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain is my favorite Boston locale to spot fall foliage while sipping a warm drink and taking a stroll. It even has free admission!
Catch a food fest
Everybody knows that a New England fall is time to prep for a long, arduous winter of hibernation. You have to eat for that to happen, right? Lucky for us, Boston's Vegetarian Food Festival is Oct. 30-31. Presented by the Boston Vegetarian Society, the festival is free and features 120 exhibitors, including natural food stores, registered dietitian consultants, cooking demonstrations, cookbook publishers, educational information on animal rights and the environment, and plenty of FREE food samples.
Scout out a cafe
Everyone knows the best place to hunker down during chilly weather is your favorite cafe. Commercial chains like Starbucks are fun, but don't forget about the little guys. Cafe Luna in Cambridge and Trident Booksellers and Cafe on Newbury street are both popular spots for those interested in a simple cup of coffee and a warm sandwich. Bring your laptop—both places offer free Wi-Fi!
Visit a farmers market
Stock up on fresh fall produce at one of Boston’s farmers’ markets. Union Square, Brookline, and Haymarket all offer free farmers markets through the end of October.
Get lost in a Corn Maze
Nothing says fall like a good corn maze. Every weekend from mid-September through the end of October, Sauchuk Farm in Plympton, Mass. creates an elaborate maze through a huge cornfield. Wear your walking shoes, you can get quite a workout!
Head of the Charles Regatta
Since its origin in 1965, the Head Of The Charles Regatta has welcomed the world’s best crew teams to the banks of the Charles River for the ultimate two-day rowing competition. In addition to watching some superb athletes, spectators can browse booths, relax at the Reunion Village, or just grab a bite and cheer on the crews!
