3 a.m. wake up call, crowded malls, stuffy rooms, and wars over Christmas presents. That doesn’t sound too fun, right? That’s why we’ve rounded up 5 events and activities to do on Black Friday (November 25) that have nothing to do with shopping.
Don your best holiday-inspired attire and head to the Boston Opera House to see opening night of the Boston Ballet’s iconic rendition of The Nutcracker. 7:30 p.m. November 25-December 31.
Spend your Black Friday taking in beautiful Boston sights on the Inner Harbor Cruise. Guests can expect to see views of the Old North Church, Bunker Hill Monument, Zakim Bridge, and more. 1:30-2:30 p.m. Tickets are $12-$22. 350 Atlantic Ave., 888-292-0180
Rather than standing in line waiting for a new HD flat screen TV, go to G2O Spa and Salon to escape from the madness. Try out their Bali Paradise Experience body treatment for much needed holiday relaxation and rejuvenation. $65 to $75. 278 Newbury St., 617-262-2220
Want to work off your Thanksgiving meal? Stop by B/Spoke for one of their signature cycling classes to get rid of all of the toxins…and turkey. $25 drop-in rate. 101 Federal St., 617-951-9900
Replace your Black Friday shopping with ice skating by visiting The MarketStreet Rink. Illuminated with snowflake lights and surrounded by festive music, guests will enjoy skating and celebrating the holiday. $6-$8. 600 Market St., Lynnfield, 781-484-5400
