Saturday classes are offered from popular Boston fitness instructors from Booty By Brabants, Equinox, Gronk Fitness, and Lululemon. The classes take place on the Seaport Common.

6. View Boston by Boat on the Spirit of Boston
You can head out onto the ocean year-round with the Spirit of Boston, which leaves right from the Seaport by the World Trade Center. There are lots of options to choose from, including those that serve lunch or dinner and also holiday and other themed cruises, all of which typically last between two and three hours. No matter which cruise option you go with, you'll get food, dancing and great views of the Boston skyline and landmarks along the city's waterfront.

If you walk into the Fort Point neighborhood, which is just a couple of streets over from the Seaport is where you'll find two of the city's most popular museums, the Boston Children's Museum and the Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum. They're both located along the Fort Point Channel, which connects Fort Point and the Seaport to the rest of the city.
12. Enjoy Drinks and Games at the Lawn on D
Started as somewhat of a popup during recent development of the Seaport, The Lawn on D has become a popular outdoor destination for food, drinks, lawn games and hanging out in the city. Games include everything from bocce and ping pong, to cornhole and giant Jenga. And if you've ever seen a photo of The Lawn on D on your Instagram feed, you'll recognize Swing Time, a set of swings with solar-powered LED lights that change color when you swing.
Unless an event is going on, The Lawn on D is seasonal and open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and stays open an hour later on weekends. Keep in mind that dogs are unfortunately not allowed.
13. Go Dancing at The Grand
If nightclubs and dancing are your thing, the Seaport is home to Boston's newest and most popular club, The Grand, located in One Seaport.
This is where you'll want to be if you're into bottle service and listening to music from top DJs.
