The benefit of being so close to Boston is that if you’re looking for a fun night out, the city provides many options. Here are some events/things to do that might spark an interest:
Ice Skating – The Boston Common Frog Pond
This is the perfect way to spend a cold afternoon. It’s a magical spot to train bae to be an Instagram boyfriend or girlfriend. And not to mention, easy on a college student’s bank account. Only $6 for admission and $12 for skate rentals. Open 7 days a week!
Bruins and Celtics Games
The sports environment is always electrifying, whether you’re a dedicated fan or not. The T brings you right to The Garden, and don’t forget about the Curry shuttle that will bring you to the station 6 days a week.
Some games are more expensive than others, but AceTicket.com seemed to have the best prices. And if you go often enough, you can look into their Loyalty Point Program to help yourself save a little dough!
Concerts for All Music Tastes
People don’t realize how close we are to so many amazing music venues. The TD Garden. The House of Blues. Paradise Rock Club. Rockland Trust (formerly Blue Hills) Bank Pavilion. Brighton Music Hall. The Spotify app even has a feature that will give you personalized concert recommendations based on your location and the artists you listen to most frequently.
The New England Aquarium
A great rainy or snowy day activity, the aquarium is home to 20,000 animals. They offer a student discount for admission to the Aquarium and its IMAX Theatre. Animal encounters are not eligible for a discount, but who wouldn’t pay a little extra money to snuggling up next to a harbor seal?
Even just walking around the city on a sunny day is something to experience. There are endless stores and cozy coffee shops to hang out in. Take advantage of what our campus location has to offer!
