Boston is one of the United States most historic cities. It’s a place where the ideas of our modern democracy were established and fought for. So it’s only right that Boston residents take Presidents’ Day very seriously. While you could luxuriate in the confines of One Dalton with exquisite amenities and fine design, why not use this well-located Four Season’s property as a base for all of the one of a kind events that are happening in and around Boston during this long weekend.
Take a Cruise
While residents of One Dalton get singular views of the city and the water, to really experience the architectural grandeur and deep history of Boston, you should get out on the water. Several companies offer boat tours of Boston, even in the heart of the winter, so bundle up and get ready to experience the city in a new way.
Sci-Fi Film Festival
Sci-Fi fans rejoice. Aliens, ghosts, and mysterious technology come to Boston during the Sci-Fi Film Festival on Presidents’ Day weekend. Channel your inner geek and head to this 11-day event that runs until February 19. Over the three-day weekend, you’ll be treated to luncheons, discussions, and viewing of your sci-fi faves.
‘Til Death Do Us Part Crypt Tours
For those in a relationship, Presidents’ Day weekend has an added bonus this year — Valentine’s Day falls on Friday. That means you’ll have to go out and experience the more romantic side of Boston, which shouldn’t be too hard. But for those who want a twist on the typical V-day festivities, why not do a “‘Til Death Do Us Part” crypt tour. Yes, it sounds morbid, but you’ll be treated to an experience unlike any other as you walk through the crypts in King’s Chapel.
See a Concert
With the Boston Pops, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and the Boston Lyric Opera, it’s undeniable that Boston is a decidedly musical city. You can almost always catch one of your favorite acts playing here, and Presidents’ Day weekend is no different. On February 15, experience the cool and sophisticated stylings of Raphael Saadiq at Big Night Live during the soul superstar’s recent tour.
Boston might be called Bean Town, but there are definitely more culinary offerings here than the humble legume. From top-rated world chefs to cozy hole-in-the-wall’s, the Bostonian restaurant scene is definitely at its peak. Head to Toro for a take on Spanish tapas in a chic yet casual atmosphere. Or get dressed up and get ready to take your taste buds on a journey at Tasting Counter, a reservation only multi-sensory dining experience helmed by renowned chef Peter Ungár.
