Whilst Boston may be a city known for its important historic role in the American Revolution, presently the city may be a modern representation of east-coast modernity, metropolitanism and potential enrichment. This weekend on August 20th, the potential interest of Boston may be increased with the arrival of the annual “Brew at the Zoo” festival at Franklin Park Zoo, which may offer guests the opportunity to leisurely appreciate the zoo and its animals in a 21+ environment.
This year’s festival aims to feature thirty-seven of Boston’s1 local breweries and restaurants, which guests may sample as they explore the zoo and eat the complimentary hot dogs and fries. Among the suppliers may be some of Boston’s best known, such as Samuel Adams, Blue Moon and the Cambridge Brewing Company, and in addition to this food and beverage suppliers such as Krave Jerky, Barefoot and California Pizza Kitchen aim to vary the supply at the festival.
As well as the opportunity to enjoy the variety of food and drink available at this event, the other obvious attraction may be the animals; the entire zoo, barring the Butterfly landing exhibit and Bird’s World building, aims to be included in the price of the ticket, and to be available for guests to explore as they sample the wide selection of beers. In addition to this, the event seems to aim to appeal to all demographics by placing lures at the various Pokestops throughout the zoo.
Whilst in Boston, travellers may choose to experience other attractions which the city may have to offer, such as those which may document Boston’s history and involvement with potentially crucial parts of America’s independence. One manner through which travellers may explore this side of the city may be through the two-and-a-half mile long Freedom Trail, which stops at sites which include King’s Chapel, Old South Meeting House and the USS Constitution. Another option through which visitors may experience Boston’s history may be the Boston Tea Party ship, which may be one of Boston’s most desirable museums for revolution history enthusiasts.
Also available in the city to visit may be other educational foundations, such as the Mary Baker Eddy library, which has aimed to celebrate the life of the eponymous nineteenth-century woman since its inauguration in 2002, and also houses the Mapparium exhibit which was created by Chester Lindsay Churchill in 1935. There may also be scientifically educational opportunities in Boston, such as the futuristic Museum of Science, which cites its aim to “promote active citizenship” in visitors of all ages and “inspire lifelong appreciation of the importance and impact of science and engineering.” If something musical is of more appeal to visitors to Boston, guests may also desire to visit the Boston Symphony Orchestra during one of its many concerts. The Orchestra is currently in its 135th season since it’s inauguration in 1881 and aims to maintain the vision of its founder Henry Lee Higginson for well over a century.
When travelling this summer in or around north-east America, a trip to Boston may prove desirable and beneficial to visitors of all interests, spanning younger to more mature adults. The city may be the home to many historic and interesting sights, and also might provide an insight and representation of the future of the region and indeed the United States of America. If travellers do find themselves going to Boston this summer, the Brew at the Zoo festival may be a primary attraction of interest, especially when travelling as a group of adults.
How might events like this encourage adults to engage in family-based days out?
