More Free Things To Do in Boston Today

Besides many free events listed in our Free BOSTON Events TODAY calendar above, here are some more Free Things to Do in Boston Today & Every Day:

Relax on the Charles River Esplanade
Nestled in the Back Bay neighborhood, the Charles River Esplanade offers views of the south bank of the Charles River Basin. There's nothing quite like a three-mile stroll along the Charles River on the Boston side for getting incredible views. The walkway offers plenty of spots for stopping to sit in the shade. https://esplanade.org/

Tour Boston's Irish Heritage Trail
The Irish Heritage Trail offers 16 historic sites along a 3-mile walk that loops in with many of the city's other historic walks. The trail features 13 statues and memorials honoring important Irish-American figures. The Boston Irish Famine Memorial ocated at the intersection of School Street and Washington Street is an especially poignant stop on the trail. http://www.irishheritagetrail.com/boston/

Enjoy the Scenery at Jamaica Pond
Jamaica Pond is a kettle lake that belongs to Boston's Emerald Necklace of parks. It is the source of the Muddy River that eventually drains into the lower portion of the Charles River. During the 1.5-mile walk around the rim of the pond, visitors can expect to find people sailing, rowing, and fishing on any given day. https://www.boston.gov/parks/jamaica-pond

Ascend to the Top of the Bunker Hill Monument
See Boston from above! Visiting this iconic attraction costs nothing more than the energy expended to climb all 294 steps to enjoy stunning views of the city and harbor from 221 feet in the air. This well-known granite obelisk was erected to commemorate the first major battle in the American Revolution. Monument Square, Charlestown, MA | https://www.nps.gov/bost/learn/historyculture/bhm.htm

Discover an Untapped Gem at Castle Island
Some people live in Boston for a lifetime without discovering Castle Island! A peninsula located on the shore of Boston Harbor in South Boston, Castle Island offers 22 acres to explore while enjoying epic sea breezes. It's the perfect place for a picnic! 2010 William J. Day Boulevard, Boston, MA

Take Pictures at the Hatch Memorial Shell
The Edward A. Hatch Memorial Shell is an outdoor concert venue perched on the Charles River Esplanade in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood that everyone has seen in photographs! The structure is significant because it's one of Boston's best examples of Art Deco architecture. In addition to being a great place to stop for a photo any day of the week, this venue also routinely hosts free live concerts for anyone who is lucky enough to be passing by! 47 David G. Mugar Way, Boston, MA | http://www.hatchshell.com/

Let the City Zip by on the Minuteman Bikeway
Pick up the Minuteman Bikeway in Cambridge to cover an 11-mile stretch that brings cyclists through some of the prettiest scenery surrounding Boston. Rollerblading, walking, and running are all permitted on this paved route. When it's time for a rest, pivot to Arlington's Spy Pond for breathtaking views across a 100-acre kettle-hole pond.

See a Different Kind of Tea Party in Boston
While everyone knows Boston for being home of the Boston Tea Party, a giant golden tea kettle located at the intersection of Court Street and Tremont Street is also worth seeing. Made in 1873 for a tea company called Hicks & Badger, this iconic kettle that hovers over the street has the capacity to hold more than 227 gallons!

Track Down the Bears at Franklin Park
While there aren't any actual bears still left at the old bear dens at Long Crouch Woods in Franklin Park, this abandoned zoo area does house some gorgeous stone bear carvings. Simply use the large staircase leading to a pavilion to enjoy an obscure treat that many Bostonians only know from lore! Be sure to take photos to prove this place is real. 1 Franklin Park Road, Boston, MA

Enjoy Fresh Air in Boston Common
It's foolish to turn away the chance to spend time in America's oldest park while visiting Boston. Dating back to 1863, Boston Common is considered the heartbeat of the city by many. Sit in the grass with a good book, relax by the frog pond, or observe the many artists who make the park their muse! 115 Boylston Street, Boston, MA
