Offering something for everyone, The Boch Center Schubert Theatre has multiple holiday performances playing this season, including Cirque Dreams Holidaze, A Charlie Brown Christmas Live on Stage, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas The Musical. Prefer a more traditional performance? Don’t miss the Boston Ballet’s performance of The Nutcracker at Boston Opera House or check out a magical performance of Holiday Pops by the Boston Pops at Symphony Hall.

Once you’ve gotten the theatrics out of your system, cross some lights off your list and find parking close to the decorated trees and light shows around the city. Faneuil Hall Marketplace boasts the biggest decorated tree in the Northeast along with Blink!, a light and sound show known worldwide.

To get in the gift-giving mood, check out the Boston Christmas Tree at Boston Commons — a 46-foot-tall gift from Nova Scotia. For those who can’t afford to gift family members with a forest-sized spruce, the city has plenty of other options. Drop by Holiday Lane in Macy’s Downtown Boston – located a block away from Boston Common. In addition to holiday shopping, the store offers its very own tree lighting ceremony and holiday windows to bring in the season. The Downtown Boston Holiday Market in Downtown Crossing is another option to load up on holiday cheer. Feeling upscale? The swanky Hawthorne lounge in Hotel Commonwealth offers light bites while shoppers browse various gifts. No matter what sights and sounds you’re ready to experience, know that convenient parking is just a click away by simply booking your spot through Parking.com.

Take in a breath of fresh Boston air with the city’s outdoor ice skating rinks at Boston Common Frog Pond and Rotunda Rink at Boston Harbor Hotel.

Lastly, round out the year and bring in 2019 at First Night Boston. The annual New Year’s Eve celebration features entertainment and special attractions, including cultural and musical performances, ice sculptures, light displays, and fireworks. It’s going to be crowded, so make sure to reserve your parking spot.
