Things to Do Near Cambridge This November

Cambridge and Boston offer you plenty of great things to do during November in honor of Thanksgiving. This month the 100 Memorial Drive apartments blog in Cambridge, MA is here to offer you a few things you can do to make the most of it, all month long!


  1. Practice your cooking skills.

If you’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner or contributing a dish at someone else’s, it’s a great idea to get an idea for what you’re making, how long it takes, what you need, and how to do it. You can do that in your very own 100 Memorial Drive apartment, but if you want experts’ help, check out this Special Holiday Workshop on the 10th, a Thanksgiving at Milk Street event on the 12th, or a Turkey Brining Workshop on the 12th.


  1. Learn about Massachusetts history.

Massachusetts is rich with American history. Enjoy the fall colors while strolling the Freedom Trail and seeing the Boston Common, Paul Revere’s House, and the USS Constitution. Get beautiful views of the city by checking out the Boston Public Garden. If you’re willing to make a day trip to Plymouth, check out the site of the first Thanksgiving at the Plimouth Plantation museum. All these events are great reminders that you live in one of the best areas in the state!


  1. Get ready for Black Friday shopping.

Before the doors open and the crowds stampede the area, make a plan for where you want to go, if you want to shop on Black Friday. Check to see if it’s open when you want to go. If you don’t know where to start, Newbury Street and Prudential Center have plenty of options!


  1. Stay active.

It’s easy to overeat when turkey, pie, mashed potatoes, corn, and all your other favorite delights are presented to you this month, but you don’t have to feel stuffed forever. Get pumped for the celebrations in two free runs, a Charles River Turkey Trot on the 19th or the Workout to Benefit Rosie’s Place on the 20th. If you don’t want to do anything formal, gather your friends and family together and walk around town, or enjoy the Cambridge and Boston views at 100 Memorial Drive’s landscaped courtyard or rooftop fitness center.


November events don’t stop at these options. Watch or play in a football (or other) game. Keep your eyes peeled for city announcements about when holiday lights and tree lightings will take place. Those usually start toward the end of November, and they’re great ways to transition yourself from fall to winter and the upcoming holidays.
