The pandemic has been going on for over half of 2020. Though it isn’t easy to adapt to reality, we are learning to adjust with the times. Yeast and flour are still flying off the shelves to sustain our new hobbies; I have been keeping myself busy comparing pizza slices. We are all trying to find ways to pass time.
It’s been a while since we’ve eaten inside, and it’ll probably be even longer before we can dance at concerts again. Luckily, businesses are reopening.
Here are a few re-openings and highlights of what you can (still) do in Boston.
The Boston Public Market is an indoor farmers market complete with a honey shop, bagel joint, and homemade soap sellers. Located in Haymarket, it’s not too far from Faneuil Hall, which has also reopened.
Complete with a 6,000 square-foot patio, TimeOut Market in Fenway is a great social-distanced destination. The market curates some of TimeOut Magazine’s favorite Boston restaurants and offers to-go counter service.
Expect to see Boston’s famous duck and trolley tours traveling around the city. Boston Duck Tours and CityView Trolley are welcoming passengers to tour Downtown Boston again, if you want a guided tour of the city.
The Salem Witch Museum recounting the 1692 trials is back open, and remember to schedule your visit online. The Ghost and Graveyard Tours resumed operations Downtown and offers a haunted history of the city from grave robberies to underground tunnels.
While the fall weather holds, it’s a great time to take a walk and enjoy nature within the city. The Boston Common and Public Garden are great places to stroll around. Charles River Canoe and Kayak provides boat rentals for a day on The Esplanade. Or you can watch the leaves change in the oldest Arboretum in North America, The Arnold Arboretum.
I hope this list gives you something to do!
