In Boston for SmartBear Connect? Here Are Our Favorite Things to Do
Test and Monitor | Posted October 11, 2018

Are you flying into Boston early to get settled before SmartBear Connect starts? You might have a little extra time to spare, but we’ve got you covered. Check out this list of our favorite things to do while you’re in Boston.

  1. Take a walk through the Boston Commons. Take a breather, grab some fresh air and find wildlife in the country’s first public park.
  2. Don’t be afraid to bring back souvenirs and do a little shopping for yourself. Newbury Street is the place to go – you’ll find boutique independent stores, as well as international retailers.
  3. Worked up an appetite from all that exploring? Continue onto the North End, where you can snag a bowl of fresh pasta or hand-tossed pizza. Follow it up with a cannoli from Mike’s Pastry and you should be good to go for more sight-seeing.
  4. Having worked up an appetite, you’ll surely be thirsty too. Take a trip to Harpoon Brewery, where you can take a tour of the famed brewery and also grab a pint. Be sure to grab a pretzel –  they’re made with Harpoon beer and boiled in Harpoon IPA.
  5. The Museum of Fine Arts Boston has a comprehensive collection of work from not only around the world, but also spanning across time periods from ancient African, European, and Asian art to contemporary photography, sculpture, and performance art.
  6. This list wouldn’t be complete without a trip down the Freedom Trail. Along the walk, you can see the Meeting House where the Boston Tea Party began; Faneuil Hall, the location of America’s first Town Meeting (and where you can also grab a bite to eat if you’re still hungry); and Paul Revere’s home.
  7. The Red Sox look like they'll make a deep playoff run this season. If you can't catch a game, take a tour of Fenway Park. On the tour, you'll visit Pesky’s Pole and stand atop the Green Monster. These tours run year-round, in sun, rain, or snow.

These are just a few highlights of great activities in Boston, but there’s a wealth of things to do, just in Back Bay alone. Come see for yourself – SmartBear Connect is a great opportunity to visit.
