If you take a stroll through Beacon Hill this weekend you will see pumpkins outside of almost every brownstone. Wander into a store and you’re sure to find themed shaped bat and witch cookies. A welcome to this year’s Halloween. Since most people are preoccupied thinking of costume ideas, we at SPOT want to make sure you also have solid plans. For those who have not locked down a plan yet, here are our top picks.
Halloween on the Harbor
For those 21 and older, this massive party is a must hit. Located right along the waterfront, the $10 ticket will get you entrance to all of the participating bars. Come dressed and ready to impress.
Themed Walking Tours
For those not interested in the party scene, this is the perfect option. Head to Chestnut and Mount Vernon Streets in Beacon Hill to see decorations on decorations on decorations. The best part? A photographer accompanies the tour to take pictures at the best spots so make sure your costume is one for the books.
Looking for a family fun event? Head to the prudential center as over 50 stores and restaurants give out candy to kids. Feel good about your children trick or treating in a safe environment while you also get to browse this season’s collection.
For those looking to get out of the city on Halloween, there’s nothing more classic than heading to Salem for the day. Known as the “witch capital” of the country, this historic town is the perfect setting for everything Halloween. You can spend the day wandering through witch museums, historic sites, and restaurants.
Whatever you decide to do this Halloween, don’t forget to be safe and eats lots of candy. Oh and for those procrastinators who have yet to find a costume, head to the garment district. You’re welcome.
