There are so many ways to be active in Boston and the New England area. Keeping an ongoing list of seasonal activities and possibilities to explore helps to plan ahead and make events and occasions out of some of these events. As much fun as it is to get coffee, dinner an drinks with others, why not try to incorporate more activities to do together? πŸ˜‰

Activities & things to do in the FALL:

  • sign up for a race (5ks all around! including color runs, fundraisers, halloween runs, and turkey trots to name a few)
  • visit the Arnold Arboretum to see the fall foliage and leaves changing (it’s free! & T-accesible)
  • check out the events at the Lawn on D in South Boston (T-accessible)
  • take a ride on a hub bikeΒ around town, to Cambridge, Jamaica Plain, etc (hubway bikes are available until Thanksgiving, except in Cambridge they are open year-round)
  • jogging/walking trails: we are so fortunate to have so many right in Boston. Some personal favorites are-
    • Memorial drive (the Cambridgeside) along the Charles River- my absolute favorite!! Stunning views of the Boston skyline as you run/walk down and it goes all the way to Cambridge and further if you keep going
    • the Storrow side/Esplanade of the Charles River – love love these views as well, pass Community boating, many beautiful views of the trees, water and nature
    • the Freedom Trail (starts in the Boston Common, ends in Charlestown)
    • the Harborwalk: starts in the North End and goes all the way down to the Seaport
    • the Boston Common & Public Garden
  • visit Salem! anytime, but especially in October/around Halloween, it’s wicked awesome (accessible by commuter rail from downtown)
  • farm life: apple picking, visiting the pumpkin patches, sunflower fields (you need a car for most of these farms, but they are well worth a short trip. look into zipcar rentals if you do not have a car!)
  • take the ferry out to Martha’s Vineyard for the day! There’s plenty to see and do in Oak Bluffs, and there is a ferry that leaves from Wood’s Hole/Falmouth pretty frequently. A day trip is perfect for renting bikes, sightseeing, lunch in the town, etc.
