Many college and university students in Boston are new to the city. Some have lived here their whole lives, but love it so much, they decided to stay. However well you know Boston, there is always more of it to explore. Once you are settled into your Boston off-campus housing, check out these things to do in Boston that are a bargain for students!
Go to a Red Sox game
Have you visited Fenway Park – or, to those in the know, the Green Monster – yet? The Boston Red Sox, our beloved baseball team, offer $9 standing room only tickets to anyone with a student I.D. With the MLB.com Ballpark app, it is super easy. Buy your tickets in advance, then display them on your phone on game day. Check the Boston Red Sox website at the beginning of April to score your tickets!
Take a tour of the city
Lots of Boston tour companies offer discounts to college students. If you have spent a lot of time in busy areas of the city, you may have been quacked at once or twice by a friendly group of sightseers. They were on a Boston Duck Tour. It is a fun-loving tour company that takes you through the city on a bus before the bus converts into a boat and rolls right into the Charles River. From the Prudential location, students can purchase tickets with a $6 discount.
If Duck Tours are not your speed, check out Beantown Trolley or Old Town Trolley, two charming trolley tours that also offer discounts to students. Beantown Trolley, which also tours Boston on both land and water, offers a $5 discount on one-day admission and a $7 discount on two-day admission to students. Old Town Trolley gives students a $2 discount off their adult admission price.
Take in a movie with a vintage twist
The Brattle Theater in Harvard Square shows old-school and foreign flics in a charming red brick movie house. Student tickets are $9, a bargain compared to the general admission price of $11 at the Brattle Theater – and an even bigger bargain compared to modern movie theater prices!
