So you’ve finally unpacked those boxes, put your things away, and this city is starting to feel like home. But you’re not a true Bostonian until you’ve lived like the locals. That’s why we’ve put together our very own Bostonian Bucket List.
Learn to Ride the T Like A Pro
If you’re asking yourself, “what is the ‘T’?,” well that’s step one. The public transportation system, which others might call the subway, is signified by the single letter “T” and that’s the way we like it here in Boston.
Find Some Treasures at the SoWa Market
The SoWa Open Market is a place for food, drinks, art, and a lot of fun. Spend a sunny afternoon looking through beautiful prints made by local artists and one of a kind, hand-crafted jewelry, all while enjoying music and good eats. You can’t go wrong.
Explore the Greenery at the Arnold Arboretum
See a Game at Fenway
Bostonians love their sports teams, because they’re the best, and seeing these incredibly talented athletes is something you’ll never forget. But even if you’re not a sports fan or a Boston sports fan, watching a ball game at Fenway Park should be a priority on your list of things to do. And for those of you looking for a completely unique experience, you can get a different view from Bleacher Bar, located underneath the bleachers of Fenway.
Cheer on the Runners on Marathon Monday
The greatest day of the year falls on the third Monday of April. Embrace the spirit of this city by waking up early, finding a spot along the marathon route, and cheering on the incredible athletes!
Kayak on the Charles
Ice Skate on The Frog Pond
When the weather starts to change, and we don’t mean for the fifth time today because that also tends to happen, but when it’s actually winter, you can enjoy the snowfall by ice skating on the Frog Pond in the Boston Common.
Swing at the Lawn on D
Make The Trek to Castle Island
Enjoy the start of summer by heading to Castle Island — and while you’re there, don’t forget to stop by Sully’s for a chili cheese dog.
Watch The Sunset at The Docks on The Esplanade
