Top Things To Do In January Near Boston

January’s a wonderful time to escape to The Inn at Hastings Park in Lexington, MA. With the hubbub of the December holidays in the rear-view mirror, it’s the perfect window for tapping into the special magic of winter in the Greater Boston area.

With a stylish guestroom or suite at our historic luxury-boutique hotel in the Birthplace of American Liberty, that magic is yours to enjoy to the fullest. Here are some ideas for doing so while enjoying our refined brand of hospitality just 15 miles outside of Boston!

Enjoy Some Winter Recreation & Play

How about spending a little quality time out on the ice rink this January on a getaway at The Inn at Hastings Park? Our Lexington property gives you easy access to a number of fine options on that front, from the J.W. Hayden Recreation Centre (10 Lincoln St, Lexington, MA) just a stone’s throw away to the beloved Frog Pond at Boston Common (38 Beacon St, Boston, MA), only about a half-hour from the Inn.

Or strap on some cross-country skis and enjoy local Nordic trails (when snowcover allows, naturally). Trails await nearby at Lexington’s Lower Vine Brook Conservation Area, for example, while the Great Brook Ski Touring Center in the 1,000-acre Great Brook Farm State Park offers more than 10 miles of machine-groomed routes.

Take in a Boston-area Candlelight Concert

You’ve got plenty of choices when it comes to live performances in the Greater Boston area this January—too many to do justice to in a single blogpost, that’s for sure. Among the most enchanting, though, must be the Candelight Concerts, beautifully lit performances held at a variety of venues in the vicinity.

Among the Candlelight offerings in January are tributes to Taylor Swift and Beyoncé on January 4th (Temple Ohabei Shalom: 1187 Beacon St, Brookline, MA); The Best of Hans Zimmer on January 12th (First Church: 11 Garden St, Cambridge, MA); Vivadli’s Four Seasons & More on January 13th (First Church); From Bach to the Beatles on January 18th (Temple Ohabei Shalom); and A Tribute to Adele on January 26th (First Church).

Dine in an Inn at Hastings Park INNgloo

Dining at The Inn at Hastings Park is wonderful anytime of year, of course, but winter has its own special appeal thanks to our all-out delightful INNgloo Wonderland.

Four INNgloos, complete with faux-fireplce heaters and mini-speakers, offer cozy and one-of-a-kind dining set between the main Inn building and our historic restored barn. The perfect place to enjoy lunch, dinner, Saturday High Tea, or a Sunday Champagne Brunch! Our INNgloos are also available for private events.
