With summer in full swing it is easy to walk around the city and bump into tourists everywhere you go. History, museums, and walking trails to explore, there are a lot of ways to explore Boston. At Corinthian Events we organize activities and outings for groups which take team building to another level. In doing so, we’ve learned a lot about putting together special events around the city. While we can’t give away all our secrets… we are sharing 1 general tip and 1 insider tip for each location!
The views from land are gorgeous and the sea? Incredible.
TIP: Options for taking a day tour are numerous. We recommend getting out on the water.
INSIDER TIP: Some of the boats are available for private events. Planning in advance often required!
More space is dedicated to public use than any other Federal Courthouse in the nation. Stop by to admire this incredible building – stay to take in the view.
TIP: Incredible views of the Harbor are on display through the panoramic windows – come picture ready!
INSIDER TIP: Many locations at the Courthouse are available for rent including the lawn. We have even hosted yoga on the lawn!
Boston Public Garden
Built as the first botanical garden in America, the public garden contains walking paths, flowers, natural beauty as well as a lagoon. Ample established trees offer many locations to sit and enjoy a shady spot on a warm day.
TIP: Sign up for a ride on a swan boat for a special view of the garden.
INSIDER TIP: Use the garden as a backdrop for free photo ops. This is also great location for walking tours of Boston!
Learn the sites in Boston aboard an amphiboius vehicle designed to travel routes throughout the city on land and water. There are a boat load of stops you’ll see on this adventure. You may want to keep in mind this is a light hearted tour – with quacking along with way.
TIP: Plan your clothes accordingly – you likely won’t get too wet but depending on the wind you may get some spray from the Charles River.
INSIDER SECRET: Ample time and enough people will allow you to have special requests – even choosing a special ConDUCKtor for your group!
Visiting the JFK Museum is a step back in time to the recreated world of the Kennedy Presidency. The style of the museum draws you in the Kennedy years, immersing you into the life of JFK and the time.
TIP: Parking can be difficult at the JFK. Public Transportation is advised.
INSIDER TIP: The Museum is a spectacular location for special events.
Standing tall on Copley Square, this landmark building boasts an active congregation, programs for adults & children and 7 (seriously 7) high level choirs. Visitors are encouraged to sign up for a guided or self-guided tour during tour hours.
TIPS: View the tour calendar or even call to ensure your time is available. These times change.
INSIDER TIP: Private tours are available and sometimes special organ recitals can be arranged!
Have fun in Boston this summer! And remember that a successful trip doesn’t just happen – it’s planned for!
