ELC Boston What can you do in Boston? April 12th, 2010

On the surface, Boston is a very small and quiet city but if you look closely you can also have fun here. In the afternoons you can go to restaurants, if you like trying new food you can find a lot of types of food like Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Venezuelan, Arabic, Mexican, among others. If you want to see the entire city from another view, you can go to the Top of Hub and have a drink while you are looking at this fabulous historical city.

A wintry view of Boston from back in January: The Top of the Hub is located at the top of the tall building on the right hand side of the picture.

In summer, you can take a nice walk and watch all the beauty and nature at the Boston Common and in winter you can go there and ice skate with your friends and have a lot of fun. As you know, Boston is very popular for its universities such as Harvard, MIT, UMASS, Tufts, BU, BC, etc. So you can come here and visit the universities.

If you want to know Boston History deeply, you could try going on Boston’s Freedom Trail along which there are 16 famous historical sites. Our teacher Aubrey calls Boston “the heart of the American Revolution.”

If you are interested in art, you can go to Museum of Fine Arts, and on the third Thursday of every month, you can have a cocktail night at Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.

At night, if you want to have an American experience, you can go to clubs such as Masa where you can dance to Latin American music and you can also eat Mexican food. If you are under 21, you can go on a bus party and still have fun. There are a lot of nice clubs here where you can have fun but the bad part is that they close at 2 am.

The North End is the Italian neighborhood in Boston, so if you like Italian food or you are from Italy you can come here and feel like you are in Italy.

Boston is famous in Sports! So if you like watching baseball, basketball and ice hockey this is the right place for you. To watch a baseball game you can go to the famous Fenway Park and to watch Hockey and Basketball you can go to TD Garden, which is located at north station.

If you are interested in witch stories you can go to Salem where you can be scared for a day and go the haunted houses and the Salem Witch Museum. And if you are here on Halloween you can see a very interesting festival and win a price if you wear a really good costume.

You can go to Samuel Adam’s factory and have free samples of beer of different kinds of it.
