A Day of the Arts


Take the green line “T” (B train) to Boston University Central and make your way to the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center, part of Boston University, for a glimpse of Fred Astaire’s dancing shoes and other show business ephemera. Then head west toward Kenmore Square to explore the stores, including the encyclopedic Boston University Bookstore (

660 Beacon St
), directly under the CITGO sign. Stroll along Brookline Avenue to Fenway Park for a tour of the stadium (see Fenway Park) and then take Yawkey Way to the Back Bay Fens , where you can rest beneath the wings of the angel on the Veteran’s Memorial. Then continue to the Museum of Fine Arts to view the outstanding art collections – from ancient Egyptian artifacts to contemporary installations. Afterwards, follow The Fenway three blocks left to continue your immersion in art at the gorgeous Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum . Then walk down to the corner of Westland and Massachusetts avenues for a spicy Asian meal at Tigerlily (see Tigerlily).

You can pack in a full evening of entertainment by taking in a recital at Jordan Hall . When the final applause has died down, head to Jillian’s entertainment complex and round off the night with billiards, bowling, and dancing into the very early hours.
