NAR’s Conference in Boston is shaping up to be one of the best events yet. That doesn’t mean you should spend all day couped up in the conference center. We’ve pulled together a list of seven things you should do while at the convention and while you’re in Boston. If you can spare them, consider spending an extra day or two in the area before or after the conference to take full advantage of the city and its surroundings.
The Boston Freedom Trail is a collection of parks, historic markers, museums, churches, burial grounds, and even a ship, that tell the story of the American Revolution. You could spend a few hours on a guided tour or spend days delving into the trail’s history.
You won’t want to miss best selling author and Homes.com national speaker, Joe Sesso. He will teach you how to broaden your business base by narrowing your niche based on the activities or interests you most enjoy. Find Joe in room 103, level 1, west on Saturday, November 3rd from 1:00-2:00 PM.
Salem is most famous for the witch trials it held in the 1690s. These were a tragic, but fascinating part of American history. It’s also only 30 minutes up the coast from Boston. Stop in for a tour, check out the museums, or just soak in the scenery.
Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox, is one of the most historic baseball stadiums in the United States. If baseball is your thing, you have to stop in for a tour while you’re in town and explore the 100+ years of history it has accrued!
