The Boston Globe Travel Show spanned over three days from February 10-12, and was packed with over 100 exhibitors from around the world. Destinations offered included not only places within the United States such as Florida, which had over 10 stalls dedicated to it, but also included exotic locations like Mexico, Central and South America, Africa, India, Thailand, Malaysia, Alaska and Indonesia.

The Boston Globe Travel Show is back for its 13th round, and we can’t wait to be a part of it this year! It will be StreetTrotter’s first year to attend the three day event (February 10-12), but if you have heard of it before, you would know that it is one of the largest consumer travel shows in the country showcasing the culture of both exotic and domestic destinations around the world.

The Commonwealth Shakespeare Company, or CSC, started what would become Shakespeare on the Common in 1996, with a midsummer performance of – you guessed it – A Midsummer Night’s Dream. That performance took place in Copley Square, but the next year’s Romeo and Juliet migrated to the Parkman Bandstand in Boston Common, where the program would thrive for the next two decades. This summer, for its 21st season, the CSC has mounted a hilarious production of Love’s Labour’s Lost.

It’s said – If you haven’t seen The Blue Man group, you haven’t seen Boston. Well I won’t totally deny this claim, as if you happen to be in Boston, watching The Blue Man group live is worth the experience. One hour forty minutes of unique music, live art, use of great multimedia and an enigmatic play of light, sound and paint – is what this show is all about.
