Go to a Museum
Boston is a world-class city when it comes to museums. The Museum of Science, the MFA, the ICA, and Isabella Gardner Museum are some of its most famous. If none of those suit your taste, there are plenty of offbeat options as well.
Catch a Movie
Read a Book
Curl up inside your closest public library or grab some reading from a local book store.
Have a Ball
There are plenty of places to have a ball with indoor sports. Strike back against the lousy weather at some of the area’s best bowling lanes. Shoot paintballs, shoot billiards, or shoot the breeze (so to speak) while putting your way through a game of indoor mini golf.
Let the Kids Run Wild
Boston has several playspaces where the little ones can go to have a blast.
Scale a Mountain
Bring the outdoor adventure indoor at some of the best indoor rock climbing facilities around Boston.
A getaway to a Spa is a great way to forget about the rain, getting a deep tissue massage or soaking in a 4-foot-deep hot tub with your significant other. Boston has plenty of top-notch spas to choose from.
Go for a Drive
F1 Boston has two indoor go-kart racing tracks. Drivers must be 18+ with a valid driver’s license.
Go for a Ride
Low on funds? Hop on the ‘T’ for some people-watching. As long as you stay inside the fare gates, you could conceivably spend the whole day riding on a single $2 fare.
There are a handful of great indoor water parks in the area, and if it’s warm enough, and you’re bold enough, there are some great outside options as well.
Brave the Elements
Boston Duck Tours ride rain or shine. When it starts to drizzle, Boston Duck Tours hands out plastic ponchos.
