Fall is in full swing, and the best things to do in Boston this October include outdoor festivities and autumn fun! Meet your favorite author at the Boston Book Festival, or whirl and twirl on the rides at America's oldest county fair. And, of course, here come the Halloween celebrations! Walk in famous gardens lit up by 1,500 jack o' lanterns, or trick-or-treat among the animals at the Franklin Park Zoo or Stone Zoo.
Along with all these special events, fall in New England brings tons of seasonal fun so make sure to check our full Fall Fun Guide. If you're looking for learning activities and enrichment, check out our Classes and Activities Guide for Boston kids for the best classes in the area.
