For stu­dents staying in Boston for spring break, we’ve com­piled a list of fun activ­i­ties to try and places to go during the week off as well as a run­down of what campus ser­vices will remain open.

Southie tra­di­tion

The unof­fi­cial start of spring in Boston is when Sullivan’s on Castle Island re-​​opens for busi­ness after taking the winter off. A South Boston insti­tu­tion, Sullivan’s last month kicked off its 65th season of serving burgers, seafood sand­wiches, and the par­tic­u­larly pop­ular hot dogs.

Head down to this water-​​side estab­lish­ment at 2080 Day Blvd. to get your grub on.

Pre­pare for spring activities

With such a light winter, by Boston stan­dards, you’ll be able to par­take in your favorite spring and summer activ­i­ties even sooner than usual.

Visit McGolf dri­ving range, located at 150 Bridge St., in Dedham, Mass­a­chu­setts, to dust the cob­webs off your golf swing (there are some cov­ered dri­ving bays, too). Do some out­door rock climbing at Rock Spot Climbing’s new loca­tion at 30 Old Colony Ave. in South Boston. Or shift your run­ning rou­tine from the tread­mill to the Charles River Esplanade.

Keep on learning

Just because classes aren’t in ses­sion doesn’t mean you should stop learning.

The Museum of Fine Arts, located just a few steps from campus, hosts a free “drawing in the gal­leries” work­shop every Wednesday from 6 to 9 p.m. where you can sketch live models or pieces in the museum’s col­lec­tion. What’s more, museum admis­sion is free Wednesday nights.

Expe­ri­ence the his­tor­ical event that launched a rev­o­lu­tion at the Boston Tea Party Museum, located at 306 Con­gress St. Learn about the people and events that led up to the Amer­ican Rev­o­lu­tion and lit­er­ally throw “tea” into Boston Harbor.

The Museum of Sci­ence will have a spe­cial tribute to David Bowie on Thursday, March 10, at 7 p.m., 8 p.m., and 9 p.m. in the Charles Hayden Planetarium.

Spend time outside

Mete­o­rol­o­gists are fore­casting nice weather for next week, so take advan­tage of the sun­shine to explore the city by foot. Walk the Com­mon­wealth Avenue Mall to the Public Gar­dens and Boston Common. Take a stroll down the Harbor Walk. Or find one of Boston’s many restau­rants with out­door seating and enjoy an open-​​air meal while you people watch.
