Get off the Beaten Path in Boston this Fall

Here in Boston the leaves are the perfect, picturesque oranges, reds, and yellows, and a cozy sweater and a hot latte are the perfect accompaniments for the crisp, cool air. Basically we’re in the meat of fall here in New England and all we want to do is be out and about enjoying it before we have to hibernate for winter and trudge through snow.

Boston is full of fun activities to do in the fall and people come from all over to peep the leaves here. If you want to get away from some of the hustle and bustle of city life but still enjoy all that fall has to offer then you’re in luck! We’ve got a list of fall activities that will get you off the beaten path. Have fun!

Rather than going to your typical, modern movie theater, catch a film at the historic Coolidge Corner Theater. This beloved neighborhood theater has been screening films new and old, big and small, for many years. Be sure to check out their offerings and stop by for a show the next time you are craving a movie night.

Shop at Bodega

This unassuming little bodega located on a side street near Berklee College of Music is actually one of Boston’s trendiest clothing stores. You’d never know it by the entrance, which looks like a true bodega, packed with food and other dried goods. Keep walking further in and you will soon emerge through a door into the actual store. Make sure to grab some pictures while you’re there too!

They often hold events up there so keep your eyes out for what they might have going on. It’s a getaway without having to get away.
