Things To Do in Boston in The Spring

This week on Her Campus BC we are focusing on the warm, sunny days ahead of us in the spring. With warmer temperatures and longer days, spring is the perfect time to take the T into Boston and partake in the many options Boston has to offer. Take a break from homework and venture into Boston before the semester is over!

 

Boston Duck Tours

Boston Duck Tours kicked off their season on March 21st. Boston Duck Tours is the best way to see Boston if you are looking for a fun adventure or are short on time. The tour spends 60 minutes on land, before venturing out on the Charles River for 20 minutes. Some highlights on the tour include the Esplanade, Beacon Hill, TD Garden, Cheers, and the Old State House.

 

Newbury Street

Newbury Street has so much to offer from high-end shops to small cafes to cupcakes shops to books stores to ice cream shops. There is something for everyone. Head to Newbury Street’s website for the latest sales!

 

 

Freedom Trail

Learn more about the history of Boston and of our country on the Freedom Trail! Go on the walking tour which runs daily to hear the history and story from an expert. The Freedom Trail has 16 stops. Some of the highlights include the Old State House, Faneuil Hall, USS Constitution, and the site of the Boston Massacre.

 

Red Sox Game

2018 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox return to Fenway Park on April 9th. Take advantage of the few home games at Fenway before the semester ends. Students qualify for $9 dollar tickets (Student 9’s) for select games. It’s cheaper than a movie ticket!

 

Faneuil HallFaneuil Hall is always a fun trip with exciting entertainment, food, and shops. If you don’t feel like shopping, grab a ice cream from inside Quincy Market and sit on a bench outside and people watch! Check Faneuil Hall’s website before you go because you never know what may be happening.
