Besides many free events listed in our Boston Free Events this Weekend calendar above, here are some more Free Things to Do in Boston This Weekend:
Tour Fort Independence
Fort Independence offers free guided tours on the weekends from 12 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Located on Boston's Castle Island, Fort Independence is a granite bastion fort that was built in 1634. One of the oldest continuously fortified sites of English origin in the United States, this primitive fort was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970. 2010 William J. Day Boulevard, Boston, MA | https://www.nps.gov/places/fort-independence-castle-william.htm
Explore Quincy Market
Quincy Market is a great place to explore on the weekends because many of the food vendors bring out their best breakfast and brunch items for lazy, slow mornings. Enjoy some "window shopping" in the stalls for a cheap way to eat on a Saturday or Sunday. Entry to Quincy Market is always free! <206 South Market Street, Boston, MA
Visit the Ruins of Schoolmaster Hill
Coming across the ruins at Schoolmaster Hill feels like discovering an abandoned castle hidden inside Franklin Park! Ralph Waldo Emerson spent two years living at Schoolmaster Hill before it was turned into a public park. The partially preserved ruins now provide the setting for one of Boston's best "secret" lookout spots.
Visit Edgar Allan Poe Square
Calling all Edgar Allan Poe fans! A quick stop on Boylston Street provides a haunting opportunity to snap a photo of a bronze statue honoring one of Boston's most tortured souls. This stunning monument depicts Poe rushing down the street as an oversized raven bursts from his bag. 176 Boylston St, Boston, MA
Visit the Site of the Boston Massacre
Those interested in exploring a morbid part of Boston's history will enjoy a jaunt to the site of 1770's Boston Massacre. The site is located directly in front of the old State House at the corner of State Street and Congress Street. A cobblestone ring marks the site where the Revolutionary War was triggered.
See the Salada Tea Doors
There's a building in Boston with doors that tell a story. The Salada tea doors were installed at the Salada Tea Headquarters in Boston back in 1927. While the headquarters moved ages ago, the hand-carved doors with exotic etchings still remain for anyone with a sharp eye to enjoy! 330 Stuart Street, Boston, MA
Tour All Saints Way
All Saints Way is an eclectic, eccentric shrine space located in an alley between 4 Battery Street and 8 Battery Street in the city's North End. Both the faithful and lovers of kitsch will adore this space. While the shrine is located on private property, the displays are almost entirely visible from the street even when the gate is closed.
Enjoy a Jaunt Through the Fenway Victory Gardens
Enjoy a true throwback attraction when visiting one of America's only remaining victory gardens from World War II. This garden space has been in use continually since 1942! While locals can pay to reserve gardening plots within the 7.5 acres that make up the Fenway Victory Gardens, touring the gardens is completely free for visitors. 1200 Boylston Street, Boston
Follow the Boston Bricks
Peppering a small alleyway at Winthrop Lane between Otis and Arch, the Boston Bricks offer a delightfully whimsical detour. The project consists of about 100 brick-shaped bronze reliefs that have been worked into the paving alongside the other bricks of Winthrop Lane. Every bronze brick depicts an aspect of Boston's culture.
Visit the Boston Molasses Flood Plaque
This plaque commemorates one of the strangest tragedies to ever hit any major city. In 1919, a molasses truck that exploded on Commercial Street triggered a deadly molasses wave that reached speeds of 35 miles per hour. The plaque located at the intersection of Commercial Street and Copps Hill terrace in the North End pays respects to the 21 people who lost their lives during the incident.
