6 Fun Things to Do in Boston this November
Boston doesn’t shut down as soon as it starts getting cold. On the contrary, there are so many things to do in the city during the fall months that it can be hard to choose! Here are some of our favorite things to do in Boston during the month of November:
Enjoy the Last of the Foliage
Even though peak foliage usually happens some time in October, there are still plenty of leaves on the trees to make things look beautiful! Spend some time gazing at all the city’s foliage hot spots
early on in the month for your best chance to enjoy what’s left.
Go to the Boston Comedy Festival
One of the things Boston is famous for is churning out some of the best comedians! Each year, the Boston Comedy Festival
offers a way for performers to unite with one goal – to make people laugh. This year, the festival is from November 6-14 and boasts top comedians such as George Wallace, Dana Gould, and Wendy Liebman.
Eat Out on Thanksgiving
Instead of staying in for Thanksgiving, save yourself the hassle of making your own turkey dinner and make reservations out on the town! You’ll want to make reservations well in advance because space fills up fast. Some of the best picks for Thanksgiving dinner include the Parker House, the Boston Harbor Hotel, and The Merchant, a brasserie style restaurant on Franklin Street.
Skate at the Frog Pond
Skating on the Frog Pond in Boston Common is a beloved winter tradition – and this year the rink opens sometime in the month of November! Keep checking this site
to find out when it opens. It all depends on how quickly the pond can freeze. If you’re lucky, you’ll have a chance to start skating while the pretty leaves are still on the trees.
Visit a Museum
Now that the weather is cooling down, you might consider spending your leisure time indoors! Boston has many world-class museums, so there’s something for everyone! Whether you visit the Boston Children’s Museum
, New England Aquarium
, the Museum of Fine Arts
, or the Boston Museum of Science
, you’ll have fun learning something new!
Go to the Theater
Boston has a lively theater scene
with shows constantly running across several venues, such as the Opera House and the Wang Center. Plays that are running in November include Beautiful: The Carole King Musical
, Elf: The Musical
, and Jethro Tull’s Rock Opera
. Some of these shows may sell out, so be sure to get your tickets well in advance!
November is a great month in the city of Boston because there’s so much to do! Whether you want to avoid the cold weather or spend some time outdoors, there are plenty of options for you.
