OT Conference Series: What To Do In Boston

Hey readers! Today I am sharing all of my favorite things to do in Boston. If you are attending the AOTA Conference in March, you may have extra time to explore the city. In case you missed my previous OT Conference guides, check out this tab on my blog! Again, I want to remind you that this is March in New England. I am hopeful that it is on the warmer side, but it is very possible that weather will not permit some of these activities. If you go to any of these places, post a picture and tag me on Instagram! Have fun!

Historic Landmarks

Freedom Trail – Explore historic Boston on the 2.5 mile trail. Start at the Boston Common and end at the Bunker Hill Monument in Charlestown!

USS Constitution – Hop aboard this historic ship and tour the museum in Charlestown.

New England Holocaust Memorial – View this memorial that is meant to be a beacon of memory and hope.

Paul Revere House – This historic site is fully accessible! See the house where Paul Revere lived, the man who warned Samuel Adams and John Hancock that the British were coming.

Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum – Check this out for a multi-sensory, interactive, live experience from the Revolution.

Old North Church – This is Boston’s oldest church! It is famous for Paul Revere’s ride and the saying “one if by land, two if by sea.”

Granary Burying Ground – Part of the Freedom Trail, this cemetery holds the burials of historic figures such as John Hancock, Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, James Otis, the Franklin family, and Robert Treat Paine.

Trinity Church – According to the American Institute of Architects, this is one of the 10 most important buildings in America!

Bunker Hill Monument – This monument is in honor of the Battle of Bunker Hill, one of the first battles of the American Revolution. Climb the stairs to the top and enjoy breathtaking views of Boston.

Exploring the City

Faneuil Hall – Enjoy shopping, dining, and more!

Boston Public Garden & Boston Common – Two of my favorite places in the city, the Boston Public Garden is a beautiful location for a picnic and enjoying the city views. In the spring, enjoy beautiful flower gardens and a swan boat ride. The Boston Common, located across the street from the Public Garden, is home to tennis courts and baseball fields. Enjoy the green space and dogs playing!

Newbury Street – My favorite dining and shopping destination in Boston.

Theater District – Home to beautiful theaters such as the Boston Opera House and Emerson College’s Cutler Majestic Theater.

Fenway Park – America’s most beloved ballpark!

North End – Home to incredible Italian food and Mike’s Pastry cannolis, you have got to check out this area of Boston.

Indoor Activities

Museum of Fine Arts – This is my favorite museum in Boston! They also have some really great accessible features.

Laugh Boston – Located in the Seaport, check this place out for some laughs!

Prudential Center – Home to indoor shopping and dining.

Boston Public Library – This is a beautiful library right in Copley Square. Check out their cafe and tea room.

Skywalk Observatory – Located at the top of the Prudential Center, where you can enjoy spectacular 360 degree views of Boston.

Walking & Biking

Charles River Esplanade – If we are lucky enough to have a warm weekend in March, the Esplanade is another one of my favorite places in Boston. Enjoy a bike ride or walk along the Charles River.

Commonwealth Avenue – Commonwealth Avenue, from Kenmore to the Boston Public Garden, may take the cake for my favorite place in Boston. I love going for walks along this beautiful tree-lined brownstone street.

Lawn on D – This may not be open in March, but I still wanted to include it. This is a really fun spot to play lawn games, enjoy music and drinks, and ride light-up swings.
