Ways to Celebrate teh New Year in Boston

If you enjoyed our recommendations for winter fun in Boston, you'll love our tips for celebrating the New Year! Here are four activities to add to your January calendar that will help you enjoy the last of the holiday season and regain focus before swinging back into your routine:

Freedom Trail Run

If you’re planning to make a New Year’s resolution to be more active in the upcoming year, the Freedom Trail Run is the perfect way to get started. This 5K isn't a race - it's a guided tour around historical landmarks and must-see places in Boston. You’ll take quick tours of all the stops along the way. Races are held every weekend of the year, but start off your new year right by signing up for a run in January. You won’t want to miss this opportunity, especially if you're new to Boston.

Historic Holiday Stroll

The Freedom Trail Foundation also hosts the Historic Holiday Stroll. Through January 5th, you can participate in this guided tour every Thursday through Sunday to learn about the evolution of holiday traditions in Boston. You’ll finish up the tour with hot chocolate and a famous Boston Cream Pie at the Omni Parker House Hotel.

Christmas Carol 2: Deadly Dickens

For many years, Boston was home to an extravagant production of "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens. This holiday season, you can revisit one of Boston’s traditions with a hilarious and mysterious spoof of this Christmas classic. Schedule a dinner date with friends at The Elephant & Castle Pub and Restaurant to help solve a mystery and enjoy a night filled with laughter. You have until January 11th to join in on the fun!

Body Worlds Vital

The Body Worlds Vital exhibit is perfect for nurses and nursing students! The exhibit makes its premiere in the northeast in Boston, and you won’t want to miss it. Visit Faneuil Hall Marketplace through the New Year to explore preserved displays of the human body and regain focus on why you decided to enter the nursing profession. You can even bring along your non-nursing friends and family members.

As you wrap up the holiday season and bring in the New Year in Boston, take some time to reflect on your current career goals. If you’ve considered entering the nursing profession, Northeastern Nursing can help you get started!
