Boston Back Bay trip for a new scavenger hunt

boston back bay trip

boston back bay tripThis upcoming Thanksgiving Day Weekend (in Canada) and Columbus Day (in America), we’ll be traveling to Boston Back Bay neighborhood to test a 3rd scavenger hunt for this beautiful city.

3 Scavenger Hunts in 1 city!

Boston is the second city where we’ll have tested 3 or more scavenger hunts. Montreal already has 4 active Tourist Scavenger Hunts in different neighborhoods.

3 have been tested in Lisbon, Portugal and will be coming online during the fall and we perfect them. Other cities have 3 or more planned scavenger hunts, but we’ve yet to test them all.

Other Boston Scavenger Hunts

Massachusetts State HouseIn the fall of 2018, we tested our 2 first scavenger hunts in Boston. The 1st is around the civic center including Boston Commons, the Massachusetts State House, the Opera House, City Hall, and Faneuil Hall, among many other historic and beautiful locations.

The 2nd is in Boston’s North End and includes City Hall and Faneuil Hall as well. Further, it takes you from the New England Aquarium to Paul Revere’s house and the Old North Church. We included the TD Garden and Quincy Market as well.

Boston Back Bay

This scavenger hunt starts at the Boston Commons and goes west through the Boston Public Garden and through Newbury St to the Old South Church and Trinity Church. It will then take us up to the Charles River where we’ll see the Hatch Memorial Shell before returning to the Boston Public Garden.

We’ve planned many different types of challenges which is namely why test our scavenger hunts in person. That, and validate directions and take our own photographs.

The Back Bay neighborhood is rather young compared to the civic center and the north end as it was actually a bay in the Charles River until it was filled in by 1882. So, everything here is 100 years old or thereabouts.

We hope you’ll enjoy discovering this part of the city, along with new challenges and learning more about Boston’s history.
