Great parks, free art and brewery tours, brilliant cheap eats and gigs … Boston, America’s ‘walking city’, has loads for visitors to do without spending big bucks
The Lawn on D is a renovated lot in South Boston, which is now a park with interactive public art exhibitions such as lit-up swings for adults. It’s open daily from 7am to 10pm, and you’ll also find food trucks, a bar, ping-pong tables and frequent live concerts held there. For a more traditional art experience, the Museum of Fine Arts Boston (MFA) is home to masterpieces by Hopper, Monet, John Singer Sargent and Winslow Homer and is free on Wednesday nights after 4pm. It also offers one free repeat visit within 10 days, free admission to all aged 17 and under on weekends and weekdays after 3pm.
