Top Things to do in Boston this Fall

 

Fall Foliage

Boston is at its most beautiful in the fall. As the leaves turn, Boston's parks put on an unforgettable show, complementing the historic architecture.

A walk along the city's Freedom Trail now doubles as a foliage tour. It's a great time to visit Boston's Faneuil Hall Marketplace, as the crowds thin out, but the weather is still pleasant. On a cooler day, take a stroll through the gorgeous indoor courtyard of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum.

Explore the Outdoors

Get outside in Boston, one of America’s great walking cities, where the historic port, beautiful waterways, elaborate bike paths and networks of urban green space invite you to have fun outdoors.  

Take the quick ferry ride out to the Boston Harbor Islands, run and bike along the Charles River Esplanade or stroll along the Boston HarborWalk to take in views of Boston Harbor and the diverse neighborhoods that border the sea.

Explore the great outdoors and enjoy recreational activities throughout the city in places like the Rose Kennedy Greenway, Lawn on D, Arnold Arboretum, and the parkways of the Emerald Necklace.

 September  73°  57°  3.5"
 October  62°  46°  3.8"

What to Wear:
Bostonians dress smartly and simply. It can be unpredictably hot in early fall and quite cold late in the season. Be prepared for anything.

Day: If you're touring, wear comfy sneakers or sandals for walking. A light to heavy jacket is a good idea later in the season. Most tourist venues don't have dress codes but check to be sure.

Evening: Consider your agenda; the theater tends to be dressier, and some upscale restaurants require jackets. Nights are generally cool to cold.
