Have fun spending the heart of autumn exploring Boston with these national holidays

Although there is a hint of hokey-ness associated with the concept of "unofficial national holidays," the themed days offer great opportunities for small talk at the office or even inspire you to take the time to do something you enjoy or try something different.

We picked a few November national holidays that you can enjoy within your Boston neighborhood

November 1- National Author's Day

Where's a better place to celebrate National Author's Day than your local independent bookstore? Open since the late 1800s, The Brattle Book Shop in downtown Boston is one of the oldest bookstores in the nation. Trident Booksellers and Café on Newbury Street is another great option to browse books with a cup of coffee or over Sunday brunch!

November 12- Happy Hour Day

Fun Fact: Technically, Happy Hour is illegal in Boston. However, there are plenty of bars that offer great after-work food specials to go along with your beer and cocktails. Eater Boston has a complete round-up of the Boston's Best After-Work Dining Deals to check out with your coworkers or weeknight date!

November 17- Take a Hike Day

Explore somewhere new outside of downtown and get a breath of fresh air along one of the beautiful hiking trails in Massachusetts or nearby in New Hampshire. Living in the Boston area means you have access to both mountain and the beach! See where you would like to spend the day on Fitt Boston's list of must-see hiking spots nearby Boston.

Not crazy about going outside of the city? Take a late afternoon stroll along the Charles River in Cambridge and stop for dinner around Kendall Square for farm fresh, local options. 

November 25- Shopping Reminder Day

It seems like the reminders for holiday shopping start so early, but November 25 marks the official 1-month countdown to Christmas. Not sure where to shop in Boston? Scroll through our shopping guide to find the perfect place to find the rights gifts for everyone on your list. 

November 29- Greeting Card Day

Technically, the national holiday is "E-Greeting Card Day." but we'd prefer to take the time and send out snail mail! It's hard not to walk into a stationery store surrounded by neat pens, elegant cards and, leather-bound journals without feeling inspired to write a note (or two).
