I don’t usually make any major travel plans during the winter time. If there is one thing I’ve learned as a life long New Englander, it’s that the weather is unpredictable.  It’s such a bummer to have your flight delayed – or worse, canceled, because of snow and yes, I had to learn the hard way about what a bummer it actually is (sleeping at the airport is NOT fun).  So instead we do lots of local outings and day trips during the winter time.

Whenever I am planning to visit someplace new, whether it’s a fun day trip or a vacation, the first place I look for information is TripAdvisor. I can always count on honest reviews by fellow travelers over there, but did you know that TripAdvisor recently just leveled up?  In addition to thousands of honest reviews about anywhere and everywhere, you now have the ability to book attractions, tours and experiences directly through TripAdvisor.

Obviously, it’s February and since that’s the heart of winter here in New England, we’re still keeping it local this time of year. So off to TripAdvisor I went so that I could book some fun activities locally. I sat down and perused the available options for the dates I wanted to do something on. There are a lot of cool things happening in Boston on any given day (Boston is such an awesome city!!), but it was fun to scroll through all of the available experiences. I really like having so many options in one place, so I can easily search for what best suits what I am looking for.

I ended up picking out a few fun experiences in the Boston area for my family and here’s a little bit about the things I picked.

Boston Chocolate School’s Chocolate Truffle Making Workshop
My hubby spent a Saturday at a fun hands-on chocolate workshop held at the Elephant and Castle Pub.  The workshop was about two hours and we left the Chocolate Truffle Making Workshop with lots of truffles that we made ourselves. During the first half of the workshop we learned all sorts of useful tips on tasting, buying and storing fine chocolate from Dorian, a Pastry Chef from the Boston Chocolate School.

It was a fun way to spend an afternoon and I was really glad I booked it for us. There were lots of options when it came to making our truffles (dark/milk chocolate and lots of toppings)

We walked out with about 50 truffles between the two of us and had lots to share with our family and friends.

North End Pizza Tour
My hubby and I got to try out some of the best pizza in Boston on this 2-hour walking food tour through the North End.  For tourists this would be a fun tour because along the way we walked along a small part the Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile route that leads to 16 historically significant sites, like Paul Revere House and Old North Church to name a few.

Anyhow, on the North End Pizza Tour, we got to visit three pizzerias, including my personal favorite, Ernesto’s (pictured below) and try out a slice at each. Pizza is awesome and so was this tour.

Bowling Package at King’s Bowl Dedham
We’ve been to King’s many times.  Actually it’s our favorite place to bowl, so when I saw there was a package that included two (2) games of bowling, shoe rental and $10 food credit per person – I was all over it. I mean, how can you really go wrong with a package like that?

All of these experiences that I booked were super easy to book online. I was able to search by date and find exactly what I wanted on the TripAdvisor site. I love doing things like this close to home, so I am excited that I can just hop online and book even more fun through TripAdvisor soon.

You already check TripAdvisor before you go somewhere or do something anyways, but did you know that TripAdvisor is the world’s largest provider of tours, activities and attractions?

Book your experience online or using TripAdvisor’s free mobile app or online, like I did. Oh, they have a really cool Low price guarantee, too: If you find a lower price for the same tour or activity within 72 hours of booking, or if you arrive in your destination and find your activity offered at a lower price by our operator, let them know and they will refund the price difference.
