Winter in Boston

When a soft snowfall flutters down on Boston's Beacon Hill, the heart can't help but be filled with romance. The lamp lit streets and cobblestone alleys create a picture postcard of New England that you'll cherish forever. And if you wish to explore outside of Boston city limits, a stay at a Bed & Breakfast in any wintry colonial town is the perfect winter getaway.

Of course, the winter season in Boston, Massachusetts, is not just for couples. There's plenty to do in town for everyone: Educational museums, thrilling theaters, and delightful dining abound.

Over in the North End, the TD Garden is the place for sports fans in winter - both the Bruins and Celtics play here. New England has some of the best Massachusetts ski resorts, many within a short drive of Boston.

That's Boston in the winter. Come discover the beauty and warmth of the season.
