It can sometimes be tricky to find an activity to do on the weekends, especially if you’re looking for something new to break the monotonous cycle. While the many beautiful museums, parks, and restaurants around Boston are great go-to’s, it can be fun to mix it up every once in a while, especially with the weather getting colder and wetter by the day. 

That’s why Puttshack is my recommendation for your next weekend outing. It’s sure to be a hit with you and whoever you choose to go with!

Puttshack is a new spot located in the Seaport District, and is a fun take on the classic game we all know and love: mini golf!

To get to Puttshack, take the green line from BU’s campus to Park street, switch to the red line, then get off at South Station. From there, you’ll enjoy a short walk through the gorgeous Seaport before arriving. 

What makes Puttshack so unique is the integration of technology into every aspect of the experience.

Each person’s golf ball is connected to them, and each hole features a leader board displaying the scores of each person in the party, similar to bowling. This technology tracks the amount of strokes you have at each hole and adds or subtracts points for each accomplishment or misstep.

With interestingly themed holes, lights, music, and more, the technology throughout Puttshack is what makes this an activity sure to please anyone in your group! 

After your mini golf experience, you can stay for innovative food and drinks! I personally recommend the cotton candy mocktail, but there are fun drinks for people of all ages.

This weekend, whether you’re a dedicated golfer or just looking to have some fun with friends, check out Puttshack!
