Things to do in Boston

As a vaguely established Boston local, I often have people visiting who need to be entertained. To assist in this process, I’ve been putting together this list over the past year. Each of these options are worth trying, and I hope this helps anyone looking for things to do in Boston.

Food

  • Buttermilk and bourbon
  • Worden Hall - Southie

By ICA/Harbor

  • Harpoon Brewery and Beer Hall
  • ICA
  • Brattle book store

North End
