Boston is not one of the cheaper cities in which to live but there are plenty of fun & high end things to do for free. That sort of compensates for the high taxes, gas prices, grocery bills, etc., right?
Here's a list of my favorite free things to do in the city:
River Music Hall
Just fan 92.5 The River on Facebook or sign up for our 9-2-5 Network on our website. We're always inviting you to come hear your favorite artists to play
Landmark Cinemas often do free screenings of movies or cable tv shows. You'll get notifications if you're on their mailing list. From time to time, they give out free indie music samplers as well - a lot of the artists are ones you hear on The River.
Your local library
It's free - no strings attached! Books, movies, music...what is not to love?
Museum of Fine Arts
Pay What You Can, Wednesdays after
4p. Also, buying a movie ticket ($9-$11) will allow you to wander
through the museum before & after. For a sophisticated evening,
have a glass of wine in the little cafe outside the theatre...
Institute of Contemporary Arts
Free on Thursdays after 5p.
These places all do free wine tastings...and not Boone's Farm level either!

Julia Child's favorite market is always hosting fun samplings. Follow them on Twitter to stay up to date.
Join their rewards club & you get free chocolate at least once a month. Oh, and that noise - that's the sound of my bum getting bigger.
This is a market from the owners of M3. They sample pretty much everything they sell in their store...cookies, chocolate, charcuterie, cheese, wine...so so good.
Boden, a very hip British company, does unbelievable promotions, i.e. buy 3 things get the 4th free, etc.. A lot of their clothes are made in Europe and they're very high quality - I've had things for years that look brand new.
If you have any free things that you love, please share them in my comments or on Facebook. Share the love!
