Winter on the Wharf

The Boston Harbor Hotel hosts the annual Winter on the Wharf event on December 31st from 1-4pm.  Enjoy FREE ice-skating, hot cocoa, and cookies. You can also check out the Waterfront Boston’s Ice Sculpture Stroll where art-like sculptures scattered across the harbor. You’ll even see a model of the U.S.S. Constitution carved out of ice. This is a family friendly event.

See the Nutcracker

If staying inside where it’s warm sounds good, you can see the a very special New Year’s Eve performance of Boston Ballet’s The Nutcracker at 7:30 p.m. at the Boston Opera House. The performance is just under 2 hours so you will have plenty of time to ring in the New Year on time.
