DIUC19 is just 30 days away, and we are excited that this year we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of Dimensional Insight! While we are making final preparations for our sessions and activities, we hope you are making final preparations by booking your flights and hotel rooms.

Are you still on the fence on attending? Or have you already registered but are looking for things to do in Boston? We made a list of 30 can’t miss destinations and attractions to see throughout the city for you to enjoy whether you’re arriving in Boston a few days early or extending your stay through the weekend.

August 3rd-4th

  1. Looking for fresh “lobstah?” How about some clam “chowdah?” Checkout the Boston Seafood Festival and see why we earned our reputation for having the best seafood in the country.


2. Reality, deception, and unwavering truth. Watch these themes unfold in “Cymbeline,” a free performance brought to the city by Shakespeare on the Common.

3. Want to visit 19th century France but not interested in the seven-hour plane ride overseas? The “Toulouse-Lautrec and the Stars of Paris” exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts will most definitely take you there (no flight required)!
