  1. Check out the holiday lights around the city

I have two options for this one. There’s the free version and the $15 one. The free one is strolling around Newbury Street, Fanuiel Hall, Boston Commons,  the Prudential Center, or the North End to see the lights strung up around the city. There’s a tree in Fanuiel Hall and Boston Commons. The other option is the “Winter Reimagined” exhibit on Bolyston Street at the Tower Hill Botanical Gardens.


  1. Skating at Frog Pond

Frog Pond is open for skating in Boston Commons! Admission is $6 and skates are $12. It is really fun and you will probably run into some NU students along the way!
