No matter what age, there is always something to do in the city of Boston during the Holiday season. While it may be chilly, there is always a holiday show or winter activity to leave you with a cheerful memory. Here are The Liberty’s top 5 recommendations for winter activities:
Holiday Pops at Symphony Hall:
Throughout the month of December, Boston’s historic Symphony Hall is transformed into an enchanting place. From December 7th to the 24th, the Boston Pops will be performing their annual Holiday Pops show. This spectacular show presented by Boston Symphony Orchestra is enjoyable for any age. Join in on the tradition and get your tickets from the box office here.
Ice skating at Frog Pond:
Ice skating at Boston Common’s Frog Pond is a fun activity for both Bostonians and visitors. This winter tradition is fun for adults and children of any age. In addition to free style skating, the Frog Pond offers both private and group ice skating classes throughout the winter season. When your finished skating, warm up with a cup of hot cocoa or a fresh Belgian waffle in the warming house.

Boston Common’s Christmas Tree:
After ice-skating at Frog Pond, stroll through Boston Common to see Boston’s Christmas tree. The 2011 Christmas tree is an annual gift from the people of Nova Scotia as a way of thanking Boston for providing emergency assistance when its capital was devastated by an explosion in 1917. Make sure to continue the tradition to see Boston’s Christmas tree, as 2011 is the 40th anniversary of this holiday tradition.
Radio City Christmas Spectacular:
The Radio City Christmas Spectacular is returning to Boston this year! The Citi Performing Arts Center Wang Theatre in Boston is proud to provide audiences with live holiday entertainment. Whether the world famous Rockettes are performing fancy footwork or eye-high kicks, the Christmas spectacular always leaves audiences with festive holiday memories.
