November in Boston: An Activity Guide

It’s starting to become the best time of the year and the weather has finally cooled off enough for us to parade around in fluffy coats, tall boots, and blanket scarves. Boston is magical at this time of year and everyone should take full advantage of it, which is where my November Bucket list comes in!

Be sure to check out a Boston Bruins game at T.D. garden by scoring cheap tickets for select games through Bruins College Nights. Fancy to skate the night away? Head over to the Boston Common Frog Pond in late November.  Afterwards, be sure to grab a hot chocolate at Burdick’s on Clarendon Street (I promise you it’s the best in the city).

Spend Veterans day watching Harvard play the University of Pennsylvania in what is sure to be a great game (and cheaper than a Pats game!). More of a theater person? Plan a date night to The Color Purple, an off-Broadway musical that has gotten rave reviews. If you are looking for more performances, be sure to head to the Boston Opera House to catch the opening weekend of the Boston Ballet’s Nutcracker.

If you are staying in Boston for Thanksgiving sign up for the Gobble Gobble Gobble Race, a Somerville Tradition. Not into running? Help other women by volunteering to serve meals at Boston’s Women’s Lunch Place on Thanksgiving (or any other day, they always need help!).

Can’t wait for Christmas? The end of November is full of tree lighting ceremonies. Be sure to check out the Boston Common lighting, which features the visit from the Mayor, Santa, and fireworks!


It’s easy to get caught up in school, but we are fortunate to live in a great city and this is the best time of year to take advantage of it!
