If you’re a nurse that loves their sports, Massachusetts has some of the best teams in the country with the New England Patriots, Boston Red Sox, Boston Celtics, and the Boston Bruins. That’s a lot of great teams to watch and enjoy with your nursing buddies on a weekly basis. Looking for an event to actually participate in and test your will and determination? Then the renowned Boston Marathon is where it’s at. This is the world’s oldest annual marathon and a tradition in Boston for more than 112 years.

You’ll want to check out the JFK National Historic Site, the JFK Library and Museum, and especially the Boston Tea Party reenactment, which takes place in Boston Harbor every December. If you’re in the mood for an event, and it happens to be July 4th, then the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular is definitely where you want to be. This famous event features a live performance by the Boston Pops Orchestra, and concludes with a spectacular fireworks display.
