30 Dalton’s Guide To Fall In The Back Bay

We are excited to enjoy 30 Dalton’s first fall in Boston’s beautiful Back Bay! After all, there’s nothing quite like autumn in New England.

We’re lucky to be located in the heart of New England’s greatest city; a city thriving with art, culture, and culinary ingenuity. There are so many notable events happening around Boston this autumn, from film festivals, to art receptions, to wine tastings. Below are our top picks for this season’s must-do events in Back Bay (and beyond). Be sure to take advantage of all this neighborhood has to offer — we’ll see you there!
