10 Unique Rainy Day Activities in Boston

Nothing is worse than having plans and having them get canceled due to rain. Totally been there, and it sucks! I compiled alllll the things to do in Boston that you can add to your arsenal of rainy day activities!

  1. Kings Dining & Entertainment - This is a fun place to be able to bowl and grab dinner! If you are wanting to extend your night after dinner, watch a movie at Showplace Icon Theater which is just upstairs from the bowling alley.

  2. Axe throwing - I have talked about our day at Urban Axes before, it was such a fun experience and the perfect activity for a rainy day if you are feeling adventurous. You can read more about our experience here!

  3. Boda Borg - This is such a unique experience, its a combination of psychical challenges and mental challenges and its absolutely fun! I linked to a the page that has a video that goes further into detail!

  4. New England Aquarium - Fun fact, this was the first thing that Dustin and I did when we moved to Boston, we love going to zoos and aquariums so much! We bought an annual pass and never looked back. Wander through the New England Aquarium and then have lunch or dinner at Legal Seafood (its one of our favorite restaurants)!

  5. Butterfly Garden - This is located in the Museum of Science and I can’t wait to visit. Its a fun addition to spending the day at the science museum!

  6. Laugh Boston - This is more of a “rainy evening” activity but I just had to put it on the list! We have seen Dirty Disney at Laugh Boston and I have honestly never laughed so hard in my life. They have a show 1-2 times a month - don’t miss it!

  7. Drive-In Movie - This is a bit of a drive out of the city, but worth making the list! Load up the car and head to Mendon Twin Drive-In to see a double feature! The website says rain or shine, how fun and such a throwback!!

  8. Boston Center for Adult Education - Take a class at BCAE, they have classes Monday through Saturday and they all look like so much fun! They have cooking classes, art classes, wine tastings, photography classes, anything you can think of, they have it!

  9. Brooklyn Boulders - Take an intro to rock climbing class at Brooklyn Boulders! They teach intro courses for us newbies which is such a fun and unique way to spend a rainy day! They have everything you will need for the class as well.

  10. Harpoon Brewery & Beer Hall - What better way than to spend an afternoon hanging out inside with friends at the local brewery while the rain comes down outside!
