Visiting Greater Boston
It’s an exciting time to visit Boston. Fall is when Boston weather is known to produce the greatest number of truly perfect days, and even when winter does make its way in, the fun doesn’t slow down. Join residents in celebrating the season through special events, holiday festivals, big-league sports, and family-friendly activities.
The weather in Boston can be hard to predict in November and December, but there are usually enough sunny days for a stroll through one of Beantown’s beautiful and historic areas like Beacon Hill, as well as must-sees like The Freedom Trail and Boston National Historical Park.
All season long, you can get a lay of the land and a sense of the rich history throughout. Explore the scenic surrounding area’s charming towns, Revolutionary War landmarks, cozy restaurants, and boutique shops on a day trip. You don’t have to travel far to reach countless attractions in towns like Concord, Lexington, and Newburyport.
Also just outside of Boston is Foxboro’s Gillette Stadium – home to the New England Patriots. Even as temperatures fall, excitement in the building is red hot after the reigning NFL Champions burst out to a blistering start. Check the schedule during your Sharon or Boston-area visit to witness the action this season, and bundle up – the season goes into January and NFL games are played rain (or snow) or shine.
The Boston Red Sox are done for the year, but there’s more fun to be had at Fenway Park this season. On November 22nd, the 2015 Fenway Hurling Classic & Irish Festival brings hurling competitions, food, music, dancing, and a performance by the Dropkick Murphys to the legendary baseball stadium. The all-day fun begins at 10 a.m.
Ring in 2016 with the Boston First Night & Boston First Day celebrations. Now a 40-year-old tradition, the events’ highlights include the Family Festival, Boston Harbor Midnight Fireworks, and THE ICE at Faneuil Hall Marketplace. This year, the fun has been extended to run from December 31st through January 3rd and, best of all, it’s free.
This MLK Day, January 18th, Boston goes big to commemorate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., coming together to host multiple events celebrating the civil rights leader. The day's events include everything from the 2016 MLK Breakfast at the Boston Convention Center to the MLK Concert performed by the Boston Youth Symphony Orchestra at Faneuil Hall, and there will also be free admission to the Museum of Fine Arts - Boston.
