Thanksgiving Weekend is loved by people of all ages in Boston, because it gives us all a chance to reflect on the many things that have happened in life, and to be thankful. It’s also a wonder time of the year to spend time with family and friends. Thanksgiving is a great time of the year to share gifts, a delicious meal, and warm up with tasty drinks. It also gives us a chance to take a break from the day to day hustle and bustle.
Here is a guide of some of the events that are happening in Boston this Thanksgiving Weekend:
Boston is a fantastic place to visit during the fall season. Bright-color changing leaves, crisp autumn air, days spent picking fresh apples – no place compares to Boston during fall. When summer ends and the hordes of tourists start clearing out, you get an opportunity to explore the city on cool-weather weekends. From September to November, the city and the surrounding communities host amazing foliage, great football, a wide range of outdoor activities, and not forgetting the spooky Halloween traditions. You don’t want to miss any of these.
Here are more reasons why Boston should be your preferred fall destination.
Fall is the best time to visit Boston. The air is light and cool while the summer heat has waned. During this time of the year, you might also be lucky enough to witness the leaves changing. Whether you are just visiting for the weekend, or you intend to stay longer, you can never have enough of Boston. From apple picking, hiking, shopping, and dining, Boston has a lot to offer. You also have the chance to attend one of the many festivals that are held in the area. Here are some of the fun activities to attend and enjoy in Boston this fall.
Labor Day, which falls on the first Monday of September, is a holiday with lots of fun things do. Since the holiday falls on a Monday, you get a long weekend, which you can spend staying at and having fun at the Envoy Hotel. The hotel is packed with numerous amenities to keep you entertained all weekend long, from Friday to Monday.
Rooms and suites at The Envoy Hotel have an amazing urban view; you won’t miss out on any of the action. Guests get to witness Labor Day events while enjoying world class cuisine and drinks from the Outlook Kitchen and Bar. Additionally, our Boston waterfront restaurant and rooftop bar is a great place to socialize, enjoy handcraft made cocktails, and be on the lookout for native celebrations. The hotel is perfect for those who want to experience the great culture, taste the best dishes and drink,s and stay close to the action in Boston.
Thinking of spending a few days of summer in Beantown? It’s a great and fun alternative to typical summer destinations which are overcrowded and so expensive. Many folks think Boston isn’t exactly the most happening place for the sunniest season of the year, but they are wrong. Boston offers a multitude of experiences – just not your typical highly commercialized activities.
If you’re thinking of something a little out of the ordinary for your summer escape — such as a gastronomic getaway — and you’re really not keen on what other summer destinations are providing, The Envoy Hotel, a world-class Boston waterfront hotel, is a splendid place to stay. Not only is it a lovely structure with visually impressive interior design, it also has various amenities to make your visit an absolute delight. Best of all, it is home to two top-rated dining establishments: the Outlook Kitchen and Bar and the Lookout Rooftop and Bar.
Indulge in a true Bostonian 4th of July celebration when you stay at Seaport District’s famed waterfront luxury hotel with stunning skyline and harbor views, The Envoy Hotel.
The strategic location of this wonderfully stylish hotel will provide you easy access to the different events lined up to celebrate the country’s Independence Day. Likewise, if you wish to include exploration activities during your stay in Beantown, The Envoy Hotel can help make arrangements so you can fill up your itinerary with other enjoyable activities.
For the 4th of July, though, the following are the hotel’s highly recommended activities or events to check out.
Whether you’re in Boston for business or pleasure this summer, regardless of how long you’ll be staying, you have to spare some time to enjoy the great activities and festivities that take place here during this season. Summer is a particularly special time in this city with its numerous offerings of sporting, cultural and food events as well as different outdoor activities.
If you won’t be staying in Boston for long, below are the three summertime activities you should put on the top of your list:
- Attend a summer concert.
What sets summer concerts in Boston apart? For one, most concerts take place outdoors. The iconic Fenway Park, Blue Hills Bank Pavilion, and Gillette Stadium are just some of the most popular venues for these concerts. You’ll also be able to see big-name bands and performers: U2, Aerosmith, Coldplay, The Chainsmokers, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, and Bruce Springsteen are just some of entertainers set to have concerts in the city in the coming months.
Boston is a lively city, full of culture, fun, and many opportunities for adventure. It’s also the home of the Major League Baseball Team the Boston Red Sox. Starting in 2004, they’ve had a run of winning World Series championship titles. They also won in 2007 and 2013. The “Curse of the Bambino” was supposedly to blame for their extremely long drought in between winning championships. This spanned 86-years, from 1918 to 2004. They’re also well noted for having a bitter rivalry with the New York Yankees, one of the most historic rivalries in professional sports to date.
If you haven’t visited Fenway Park to see a Boston Red Sox game, you owe it to yourself to stay in the city and go. Here at The Envoy Hotel, we make for the perfect place to stay and enjoy while you’re taking in a game, seeing the sights around the city, and going out at night. We’re a mere four miles from the stadium, which makes staying with us and getting tickets to watch a game a no-brainer. Fenway Park is the oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball, making it one of the most historical to visit. One of its most notable, talked about features is the Green Monster in left field.
Traveling can be a magical experience. Nothing beats the novelty of being in a new place, trying new foods, and exploring neighborhoods you’ve never been to before. Since you’ll be leaving the certain comforts of your own home to come and visit us here in Boston, we pride ourselves on offering you the best experience we can. This includes as few restrictions and limitations possible. You’ll be pleased to know that we’re a pet-friendly hotel here at The Envoy, so feel free to bring your furry friends along.
Speaking of providing the best experience, we’ve worked hard to become a AAA Four-Diamond rated hotel, and a beacon in the Innovation District. Our location is steps away from Seaport landmarks, including the Institute of Contemporary Art, Fish Pier, and Moakley Courthouse. Dogs love the fresh sea air on the Harborwalk, and they’re allowed in most areas on-leash. The spectacular water and city views are just the start. Just wait until you explore the restaurants and experience the nightlife. If you’re a baseball fan, catching a game at Fenway Park can be quite the fun afternoon as well.
Boston is Massachusetts’ capital and largest city. Full of diverse neighborhoods, rich with history, the area is a popular destination spot. With fantastic public transport, and great sights to see, it’s easy to have a few days fly right past you if you’re not careful. Plan ahead and get the most out of your upcoming visit. Family time is special, and deserves the right amount of focus to truly enjoy.
Here at The Envoy Hotel, we offer great pricing on our luxury accommodations, with convenient access to many popular spots, including the waterfront and innovation district. However, not everything has to cost an arm and a leg. Here are seven awesome ideas for family fun without breaking the bank:
#1 – Walk The Waterfront
Since you’ll be staying so close with us here at our property, why not get the most out of the convenience?
