Put BOSTON on your shopping list this holiday season!
No one needs anymore stuff- right?
So forget the traditional holiday sweater or shirt & tie and give a gift that will last well beyond the day!
Whether it’s a weekend getaway or a day visit to a museum exhibit or theatrical performance, a visit to Boston will surely put you on top of their list! How about a Restaurant Certificate for a lunch or dinner at the hottest new culinary spot? Hotels have plenty of special offers for the winter season- why not take advantage of them and get bragging rights for the Best. Gift. Ever.
Bring family and friends for festive food and fun, spectacular shows, holiday strolls, gardens aglow, merry music, tree lightings, shopping, skating and skiing - you can even take the rails to the trails with the Wachusett Mountain Ski Train.
