Where to Have Adult Fun: Boston
Boston Duck Tour
If you grew up around Boston, chances are you’ve taken one of the fabled duck tours before. Why not change things up a bit now that you’re 21+? Not all the tours have catering, so it might be best to provide the beverages yourself. Regardless, it’s a blast to have a couple drinks and enjoy the afternoon on the duck tour with some friends! Although a kid’s destination, this event is still enjoyed by many adults.
Sam Adams Brewery Tour
Although it is the smallest of the three breweries (the others are in Cincinnati, OH and Lehigh Valley, PA - these two breweries are not open for public tours/tastings) it is the most important. The Boston Brewery is akin to a test kitchen – when you visit for a tour or enjoy a pint or flight in our Beer Garden, you may have the opportunity to try a beer that you’ll never get to try again, or maybe even one that you’ll be able to pick up in a six-pack a year down the road. If you want to really get a feel for Boston’s history and spirit, this stop is a must!
Red Sox Game
Go Sox! Even if you aren’t a fan, heading to Fenway Park for a game is an experience worth having. Kick back and relax with a Sam Adams lager in hand, and you’re getting the Boston experience! Better grab a Fenway Frank while you’re at it, too. As any baseball game makes a great outing, a good sox game makes the par. Check it out!
Animal lovers don't want to miss out on a chance to visit this immensely popular aquarium. It’s filled with fascinating marine life, from tiny jellies to massive sharks. Favorite exhibits include their playful penguin colony and their four-story Caribbean reef.
If you’re an adult reading this blog, chances are you’ve already brought the kids to the aquarium. If this is the case, opt for a whale watch cruise out to Stellwagen Bank Marine Sanctuary, where you’ll get to see whales, dolphins, sea birds, and more!
Boston Bike Rentals
Get out and get active in this very bike-friendly city. With bike lanes and riverfront trails abounding, you’ll find that many Bostonians bike for work and play on a daily basis, as long as it’s not in the middle of the long New England winter. Use the map provided with your rental to map out a route, or explore on your own.
You could also choose to upgrade to a guided tour, if you’d like a little bit of help on your wanderings. I would recommend this for those tourists that might get lost in a place they haven’t been to before; it’s worth not getting lost!
