Are you visiting Boston this weekend? Here are some ideas to get you started on your adventure in our amazing city.

  1. Free walking tours at Arnold Arboretum: Enjoy the oldest public arboretum in North America. Really a sight to behold.
  2. Changing of the Guards at Faneuil Hall: Watch the “Regulars” change their posts, then meet the soldier re-enactors to learn about this period in Boston History. Best of all, it’s free!
  3. Harpoon Octoberfest: Sample fresh Harpoon Octoberfest beer, German food, and German Oompah music at the 21st annual festival.
  4. Red Sox vs. Yankees at Fenway: Need I say more?
  5. Topsfield Fair: Catch Chubby Checker at this classic fair celebrating the 50th anniversary of the “Twist.” Oh, and did I forget to mention all the food? Fair runs through 10/11.
