Boston Winter

There’s 349 days until Christmas 2017, but that doesn’t mean the 2016 holiday is over! Boston Winter, a new installment in City Hall Plaza, will continue festivities until the end of February. This complex includes a winding ice skating path, a holiday market, a pedal powered light-up tree and plenty of photo ops! Photos by Madeline Bilis.

Go on Friday nights for “Rock N’ Skate”, an evening event with a live DJ, games on ice and prizes! Check their calendar for ice skating lessons and more. Daily admission prices are $10 and skate rentals for $6.

Warm up afterwards at The Urban Lodge, a beer hall with various alcoholic, non-alcoholic beverages and snacks. Take a break and play some giant Jenga with friends before facing the cold again.


And of course, don’t forget to bring your camera or Polaroid and snap a cute memory of your trip with the signature marquee Boston sign! Standing over six feet tall, the brightly colored red and green sign is not to miss.
