Next weekend my friends and I will be hosting our friend Caitlin, from New York, for a local spin on our regular girls’ weekends. Despite the fact that we aren’t going to a new city, I thought it would be fun to step back and take a look at Boston from a tourist’s perspective to make the weekend more adventurous.

It was pretty hard to find touristy things to do in Boston as it’s right in the middle of winter, but after a lot of research I came up with some really cool options that aren’t too expensive.

Beer Summit Winter Jubilee. A beer festival that will be taking place at the Park Plaza on January 15-16. It costs $40.

Ahla Food Tour in Brookline. A walking tour through Brookline that includes learning about and tasting authentic Jewish or Russian food. The cost is $34 for 10-24 people and $30 for 25-60 people.

Antique Limousine. A tour of Boston in a 1939 seven-passenger Cadillac Imperial Limousine where the chauffeurs talk, dress, speak and act as if it were the 1930’s. I couldn’t find pricing, but apparently if you call they will “give you an offer you can’t refuse.”

PhotoWalks. A guided tour of Boston with a side of photography tips. It costs $30.

I tried my best to find off the beaten path ideas. Think I missed anything good?
