If you're like any other Bostonian, you're probably used to the winter months being cold, harsh, and dead. And with an impending snowstorm on the horizon, it's easier to accept that weekends will probably be spent indoors, in the comfort of your home. And even though it's easier and most definitely cozier to lounge in the warmth of your living space, it will be something that's easy to get over once spring and summer set in in a couple of months when the sun's out, and when you should be too. Luckily, the Boston Globe is offering Bostonians the chance to see (and plan!) for when that day comes.
The Boston Globe Travel Show this weekend at the Seaport World Trade Center promises to give Bostonians a reprieve from Friday's significant snowstorm. With over 300 exhibitors showcasing your dream vacations - complete with dressed up booths, activities, and shows - this snowstorm weekend will surely won't be your typical one.One of this year's activity highlights is the Northeast Beer Craft Pavilion, featuring beer brews from 20 of the region's best breweries! And if your palette isn't a tuned to beer, then try one of the culinary stations that feature exotic foods of the globe, prepared by none other than the city's top chefs. Got kids? Drag them with with you, as sea critters from SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment Zoo cheer you on as you navigate your way around the show.
For those seeking some advice on where to take their vacation this year, worry not - travel experts and authors from Frommers and the highly-acclaimed book 1,000 Places To See Before You Die will be giving talks and advice on how to customize your vacation to your liking. And to top it all off, the Globe is hosting a raffle draw for attendees, with a vacation package for two to Capetown up for grabs!
So see, even if the snow is piling up outside, there's no reason to hideaway and sulk until it's gone - Boston has lots to offer outdoors. And if all else fails, there's always the sled to take you down that bunny hill.
