We have found the best spots in all the different neighbourhoods in Boston that will keep you going until you finish all your work and then …yes, you can PARTY!

Boston Common:

When you get fed up of the boring libraries you can grab your books and sit under one of Boston Common’s ancient trees. Plus, you don’t need to worry about using your laptop because the park is equipped with free wifi. Quite amazing, right? This 380 years old park is the oldest public park in the States and it has free wifi connection!



Boston Public Garden:

While the sun is still shining you can revise in this green garden. It is the perfect place to look for a relax place that helps you focusing on your revision. When the weather starts to cool down you can move to the cafes nearby.



Christopher Columbus Park:

It is said that the ocean transmits peace and tranquility, so if you are stressed about the next exam go to this park, sit in the grass, breath and relax…. you can do it! The park also offers free wifi connection.


Thinking Cup:

In my opinion this is the best spot to study. Although the atmosphere is quiet and nice, what really attracts me from this place is that they have the best coffee in the city. I am not the only one who thinks this, in fact it was voted the best coffee shop in 2011 by Boston Magazine. So if you need some fuel to continue studying this is the place!



Trident Bookseller & Café:

One of the best things of this café is that you can choose whether to sit indoors or outdoors. If you are not sure about the weather forecast just go to Trident Bookseller & Café and you have two options in one. Plus if you are a night student this café closes at 12 p.m. Of course there is free wifi all around!

Pavement Coffeehouse:

With a strategic location in front of Berklee’s campus it offers good coffee and plenty of seats. If you are a fan of Espresso Royal Chain this is the newest spin off.

    Fantastic guide! I’m studing in Boston one year ago and I didn’t know these places to study. Maybe you could add to this list of cafes Caffè Nero in Chinatown or Ogawa Coffee in Downtown. Cheers!
