Iconic Things you can do in Boston during the Pandemic


Going to college in a big city especially in the middle of the pandemic can be intimidating because there’s so much to do yet it’s hard to figure out where to start! This guide to all the classic things to do in Boston should do the trick. 

Boston requires everyone to wear a mask when they are in a public setting except for when sitting at restaurants or large outdoor spaces where you’re being socially distant. Although bars are closed and all the stores close by 7pm, there’s still a lot to enjoy! Here’s a list of all the classic things to do in Boston that you can still enjoy during the pandemic!

Newbury St & Prudential Center

If you have lived in Boston and haven’t been here, where have you been! This street is a classic for weekend shopping trips and if it suddenly starts downpouring, you can take shelter at the Prudential Center, a huge mall with an Eataly inside! You can end your day by making a reservation at one of the fantastic restaurants on Newbury or Boylston St. for dinner!


Boston Commons

When you reach the end of Newbury St, you’ll arrive at a beautiful park called the Boston Commons. In the winter they have a public ice skating rink and in the summer you can watch the ducks in the pond! It’s a great place for a picnic or even just a stroll. It’s something you can do while social distancing from others and still have a great time.
