In two days I'll be arriving at Boston by myself. I come from Australia. Anyway, part of me going solo on this trip was to leave everything behind and just meet different people. I've already been to NYC and I loved it there, although it was a bit too dense. So, how can I meet people at Boston? I am under 21 years of age (20), so I guess bars are out of the equation. How can I approach people in Boston without coming across as weird? I really would like to meet new people, and I heard Boston has some rather articulate and academic people.
Any spots you would recommend? Also, if anyone on this forum is interested in meeting up and showing me around, we can talk some more and take it from there! I will be staying in central Boston, near Union Square and stuff.
