10 Things to do in Allston That You Shouldn't Miss

May 18, 2022 Karren Gelb

Walk the Freedom Trail the first time you visit Boston and you'll quickly get a sense of this coastal city's revolutionary spirit and history. But make sure you also explore some of Boston's fine museums (try the Isabella Stewart Gardner, featuring masterpieces displayed in their collector's mansion) and old neighborhoods (like the North End, Boston's Little Italy). You can't claim to have experienced real Boston culture, though, until you've watched a Red Sox game from the bleachers.

Paddle Boston - Charles River Canoe & Kayak

Enjoy an outing on one of the most scenic sections of urban river in the country. An experience on the Charles River from our Boston location in Allston/Brighton is a wonderful respite from the surrounding city, with parkland on both shores and rowers plying the waters. Head downstream and you'll encounter local colleges (Harvard, M.I.T., and B.U.) and eventually the Esplanade (a great picnic spot!) and the unforgettable Boston skyline.This nine-mile stretch of river has no current, allowing painless round trips. However, renters can also enjoy one-way trips to or from our Cambridge location in Kendall Square — a unique way to see the city!

Brighton Music Hall

Reviewed By medicalmarinara - Boston, United States

Love this spot. They can bring in some pretty solid names and every spot in the place is basically front row. They have two bars and a good amount of room for everyone. Very intimate venue and a great experience to be so close. Owned by Live Nation, can't bring lighters inside but you can put it in a bucket and grab it on your way out.
