Every year, the Boston Parks and Recreation Department hosts a grand tree-lighting ceremony in the oldest park in the United States. Located a short, ten-minute walk from The Boxer Boston Hotel, this grand kick-off to the holiday season is not one you will want to miss. It may be a bit chilly, so be sure to grab a hot cup of coffee or apple cider on the way. If you’re feeling inspired to dive right into Christmas mania following the event, you can walk over to Newbury Street and get your shopping started right here in Boston.
