Discover Boston

Each year Boston has its annual Columbus Day Parade. On odd ending years, like 2017, it goes around the North-end of Boston and on even years you’ll catch it in East Boston. It’s 2 hours long and celebrates the city’s Italian heritage, the armed forces and their contributions to American freedom, and the voyages and explorations made by Christopher Columbus. It’s a great time to chat with friends while you watch the floats and performers slide by.

Watch the Head of Charles Regatta and you will see over 8,000 local and elite rowers in racing boats! They arrive in late October and create quite a spectacle! Crowds form along the river bank and look down from the bridge, giving you a perfect excuse to be outdoors and enjoying the golden fall colors.

If you are a Boston sports fan, October offers many exciting events! The Bruins, Celtics, and Patriots games are all in full swing. With TD Garden and Fenway Park right in the middle of the city, getting to a game couldn’t be easier. Gillette Stadium requires a little more time to reach, you can easily get there and back on the special “Patriot Train”departing from North Station, just budget more time into your schedule to ensure you aren’t late!

Boston is a large, inclusive city that has activities everyone will enjoy. Whether you want to stroll and soak in the beauty of Autumn, or cheer for your favorite team, Discover Boston has ideas for everyone!
