After a long, brutally cold winter, the New England weather is finally starting to warm up. This is good news for those under-21 college students.
The warmer nights open up a lot of possibilities for evenings out. Boston is a beautiful city to walk around, and there’s a lot to see and do. Take the time to explore the city that we’re so fortunate to be near. For a night of shopping and dining, head to Faneuil Hall and the North End. Dick’s Last Resort is a fun stop for dinner, and just a short walk away is the famous Mike’s Pastry for desert. You’re sure to stumble upon something exciting, from a free outdoor concert to street performers.
For those into music, take a look at the upcoming shows at the Bank of America Pavilion, located on the waterfront in Boston. There’s not a bad seat in the venue, and it’s the perfect location to take in a show under the stars.
If you don’t see an upcoming show that you’re interested in, try some of the other places Boston has to offer. The House of Blues, Brighton Music Hall, and Paradise Rock Club are all smaller, more intimate venues. No matter what type of music you’re looking for, you’re sure to find it in one of these locations. Plus, ticket prices are typically much more reasonable than at the large venues.
Maybe, you’re not looking to listen to music, but make your own. Limelight Stage & Studios is not your average karaoke bar. You can either sing in front of an audience on the main stage, or rent your own studio with your friends for $15 a person per hour. If you just want to go and watch some of your friends on stage, you can relax and order food. Limelight is located on Tremont Street, right near the Boston Common.
Curry offers shuttles to the Quincy Adams T Station on Thursdays and Fridays, and to Faneuil Hall on Saturdays. Take advantage of the transportation and the warm weather this season and see what you can find by wandering around the city. There’s a lot more to do than people realize; you just have to get out there and find it.
