Boston is teeming with theatres, opera houses and comedy clubs so make a space in your schedule to catch a show. We can highly recommend the record-breaking ‘Shear Madness’ which is a humorous murder-mystery romp and the longest running play in American history. The attraction here is that the script is mostly improvised so the outcome is never the same and always entertaining. Other night-time activities include Bikes@Night which guide visitors across the city using nothing but pedal-power – you'll get to see many of Boston's major landmarks, from the waterfront to the harbour, the streets, shops and Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. On clear nights head to the Boston University Judson B.Coit Observatory which holds public nights every Wednesday without charge (from 7.30pm in winter and 8.30pm in summer), or stay on campus and catch an American football college match.
Dining & Gourmet
Combining the flair and flavour of French cuisine with Boston's charm, the award-winning Bar Boulud is a stunning bistro and wine bar from world-renowned Daniel Boulud - chef-owner of a number of restaurants worldwide; including the three-Michelin starred DANIEL in New York City.
