Downtown crossing is partially made up of the theater district, so before you head home for the holidays be sure to catch the Boston Ballet’s Nutcracker at the Boston Opera House. Kill time before the show by walking around all of the shops that make up Downtown Crossing. Be sure to check out Primark for stylish clothes at a cheap price.
I love going into Downtown Crossing around Christmas time because it feels like you’re in the North Pole. Lights line the streets and carolers frequent the corners of the blocks bringing Christmas music to the streets. Macy’s even has a giant Christmas tree lit up outside the store. Over this past weekend I went into town to see the Nutcracker as I do every year. As someone who has been dancing for fifteen years, I love watching the performers tell a story through their movements. This show always makes me excited for the Christmas season.
In addition to the theater district, China Town also makes up part of Downtown Crossing. If you do not want to go into one of the many hole-in-the-wall restaurants, take a walk to P.P. Changs. Enjoy Asian cuisine for around $15. I recommend the lettuce wraps! Be sure to look up any promotions they are having online!
