Five Things To Do During February Vacation
Are you planning a trip to Boston in February? Perhaps you’re taking a staycation during February’s school vacation week? We’ve got some activities for you to check out!
- Afternoon Tea at the Boston Public Library
First of all, the BPL is a must-visit location on any trip to the city. But some may be surprised to know of the inventive and delicious tea menu they offer, from traditional lobster to Milky Way petit fours!
- Boston Common Frog Pond
A popular tourist destination at any time of the year, the Boston Common Frog Pond is a great rink to skate. Not to mention that the USA Today newspaper considers it to be the best outdoor ice skating rink in the US!
- Children’s Winter Festival on the Boston Common
Join Mayor Michelle Wu and the Parks and Recreation Department for the perfect afternoon activity for kids of all ages. This free event features music, giveaways, various winter attractions, treats, crafts, and much more! Thursday, February 24, from 11 a.m – 2 p.m
- Take a Walking Tour
Although it can be a bit cold in Boston during the month of February, you may still want to consider taking a pay-what-you-wish walking tours:
North End/Little Italy
Beacon Hill Crime Tour
Battle of Bunker Hill
- Harvard Square Chocolate Tour
Harvard Square is a great place to take the kids for a variety of reasons, but one of the main reasons is that there are a lot of great places to get chocolate treats. If your children are chocoholics, consider taking them on a chocolate tour which includes locally made ice cream, tea, a trip to a traditional candy shop and much more.
- Fireside Experience Package
A bonus sixth idea – escape to The Lenox with our Fireside Experience package! Stay in one of our luxurious Executive Fireplace rooms, some of the only hotel rooms in Boston with in-room wood-burning fireplaces, and enjoy a locally made fireside snack in style with hot chocolate & s’mores-inspired chocolates.
