2 College Freshman

Weather: Its Boston. The weather is bipolar and you will experience ALL types of weather within a year of being here. Bring a variety of clothes, jackets, and shoes in order to be prepared and leave the umbrella at home. The wind blows in all directions here.

Beware Seasonal Affective cases! Everyone agrees: If you like that whole warm-weather thing, stay far away from Boston. The winter weather can be brutal, and the winter always seems to creep into the fall and the spring. Most apartments have heat included, so do not make the mistake of getting a place that doesn’t because bills can hit $200 in the winter months. The gray skies, however, do break up occasionally, and when they do, Bostonians shed their layers and head outside. You will be amazed at how much a nice day is appreciated once you have been deprived of sunshine for so long. Boston is beautiful in the spring, once it eventually arrives.

Luckily, there are plenty of outdoor activities, depending on the weather. During the winter, the Frog Pond in the Boston Commons opens as an outdoor ice skating rink. There is also plenty of skiing and boarding nearby in neighboring states. During the warmer seasons, the Charles River provides all sorts of activities, including, sailing and boating, jogging along the water, and plenty of free outdoor music festivals. Go to the pier or to the parks for an afternoon outdoors. Of course, Boston has a million things to offer when the weather is unbearable: museums, galleries, aquarium, shopping, restaurants, theater, and clubbing.
