Hi everyone, I am EC Boston’s Student Services Coordinator. I moved to Boston five years ago when I started my B.A at Northeastern University. I love exploring the city and there is always new things to see and do. Here are my top three favorite places in the city:
- The Boston Public Library. As a literature lover and an English graduate, I’ve spent many hours at the BPL. I love that the building has so much to offer: there are many quiet places to study and, in the summer you can sit in the courtyard. If want a bite to eat there are two different cafes, afternoon tea, and a newly added lounge named the “Map Room Tea Room” where you can drink literature inspired cocktails. My favorite area of the BPL is still the older section with a huge hall with traditional green reading lights. This is a perfect place to study in the off-seasons, and also an ideal Instagram spot!
- My favorite museum in Boston is the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. This is a private-owned art gallery in a beautiful building which has a garden inside! If you like art, architecture, and nature, this is a must for you. If you have a student ID, tickets are only $10. A fun fact about the museum is that if your name is Isabella, you get free lifetime admission!
- As summer is coming soon, I love being outside during this time. My favorite activity is renting a kayak at the Charles River and kayaking around the Boston skyline. This is a fun activity to do with your friends or family.
We plan many fun activities for our students each month. Please visit our website https://www.ecenglish.com/en/school-locations/usa/learn-english-in-boston and our social media pages for more information!
