Though the holiday season is over, winter is still in full swing in Beantown, with frosty air and the next big snowfall just around the corner. Residents of the Boston Seaport apartments at NEMA Boston may elect to stay warm and cozy at home with a cup of hot cocoa and the aroma of a home-cooked meal wafting from their chef’s kitchens — and we don’t blame them. But for a change of pace, some fresh air, and some much-needed activity during the long stretches of chilly weather, NEMA residents may want to explore the Boston area’s array of unique winter activities and destinations. And they’re all within moments of, or just a short drive from, these luxury Seaport homes.
Right in NEMA Boston’s Seaport backyard is the Snowport. Now in its third year, this interactive winter destination features a host of outdoor activities, including nostalgia-inducing large-scale versions of games like Jenga and Battleship, iceless curling, and light-up bocce ball. The Snowport is also home to The Holiday Market, with its canopy of lights, outdoor dining, a tree market, a Winter Wish Wall where visitors can add their wishes to a 30-foot chalkboard, and much more.
For those who want to practice skating, gliding, or ice dancing — in between perfecting their Axels and Lutzes — Boston is home to two must-visit outdoor ice skating rinks. Boston Common Frog Pond is currently open for ice skating and lets visitors rent skates, lockers, and “Bobby the Skating Seal” skating aids for children learning the sport. Frequent visitors can also purchase season passes to take full advantage of this beloved outdoor pastime. This season, The Rink at 401 Park, the recently debuted 6,000-square-foot outdoor rink, will feature skating lessons, “IceFlow” yoga, and pop-up shops, with nearby spots for post-skating food and drinks.
Finally, for a day of skiing, snowboarding, and tubing, a range of options are less than an hour’s drive, door-to-door, from NEMA Boston. The award-winning Blue Hills Ski Area, Ski Bradford, and Nashoba Valley Ski Area are all favorites of Bostonians, and essential destinations for a winter weekend of taking in fresh snow and the slopes.
Whatever you plan for your winter days outdoors, your NEMA Boston home will welcome you back with a toasty and relaxing evening overlooking the Boston skyline. Visit the NEMA Boston website to see what’s available, and make an appointment to view these Boston luxury apartments for rent.
