Talk a walk around the Boston Common to get into the Christmas spirit! All of the trees in the Common are lit up with lights and a giant tree is on display in the center. Take a look at the incredible ice sculptures throughout the Common. Stop by the Frogg Pond, an outdoor skating rink, for some winter fun! Rent skates or save money by bringing your own!
I went to the Frogg Pond a few years ago with four of my friends and spent about an hour skating. It was way colder than we expected, so if you decide to go–wear lots and lots of layers! We had so much fun looking at the city all lit up and listening to the Christmas music playing on the outdoor speakers. On our way to dinner, we passed by a few of the sculptures on display. We were in awe at how much detail went into turning these blocks of ice into art. It was truly a winter wonderland!
Take a short walk to Newbury Street and stop into Georgetown Cupcakes. Warm up with a delicious chai latte and enjoy a cupcake (or two). My favorite is the PB Fudge cupcake–I highly recommend!
