  • Faneuil Hall - The Art of the Brick Boston
    When fans of the iconic television show Cheers head to the location that inspired it on Beacon Street, sometimes they come away a little disappointed that, other than the façade, it doesn’t look much like Sam and Diane’s bar that they came to love. That’s where Cheers at Faneuil Hall, a replica of the set, comes in. This bustling Cheers show look-a-like recreates the interior of the bar from the iconic program, complete with large cardboard cut-outs of Norm, Cliff and Carla, as well as plenty of other trinkets and memorabilia. The working pub also features a menu of typical favorites like nachos, chicken wings and burgers. Cheers aficionados can even line up at the bar to order beers in take-home souvenir mugs.

  • Paramount Center
    The Paramount’s brightly illuminated Broadway-style sign in the Theater District has taken over the role of eye-catcher along Washington Street, now that the Filene’s infamous clock tower is no more. The space was originally opened as a cinema in the 1930s, but was forced to shutter in the mid-1970s, a time when the entire downtown area needed to be revitalized. In 2005, Emerson College purchased the building, renovated the interior and transformed it into the intimate 596-seat venue it is today. With large gold columns and artistically painted walls, The Paramount’s main stage stands out. But the facility also hosts nine rehearsal studios, four classrooms, a sound stage, the Bright Family screening room and two smaller performance spaces that host everything from comedians and dance troupes to more official theatrical productions.

  • The Institute of Contemporary Art
    Overlooking Boston Harbor, the Institute of Contemporary Art's stark glass façade houses a permanent collection of modern art as well as a rotating selection of shows, installations, and performances. Visitors meander through halls lined with works of various media—permanent and temporary exhibits have included Isaac Julien's video installation Ten Thousand Waves, Laylah Ali's Greenheads series of humorous and absurd paintings, and Air, an interactive exhibit that flows through the lungs of every museum-goer. Promoting dance, theater, and musical arts, the museum's calendar of performances gives patrons a chance to kick back and relax as artworks unfold before their eyes. Various interactive programs, such as the family art-making workshop, keep members in tune with their own creative drives by encouraging artistic exploration.
