If you like nothing better than to imagine how the other half lives, you'll suffer no shortage of old homes to sigh over in Boston's Back Bay. Most, unfortunately, are off-limits to visitors, but there's no law against gawking from the outside. Stroll Commonwealth, Beacon, and Marlborough streets for the best views. To get inside, you'll have to keep an eye out here on 365 Things to Do in Boston, as we post upcoming lectures, films, and other events in these respected institutions in the future!
And in the meantime, for all you single ladies, you better wear your sexiest "oh i'm just on my daily stroll" outfit - you never know if Mr. Right will be in his front yard. If so, make sure to trip. Your prince charming will come running for you. If not, then you just made a fool of yourself. Pat yourself on the back.
