What are some fun ways to meet recent grads? New to the city, lots of young people but hard to make friends.

Take a class at Boston Center for Adult Ed (BCAE). They have cooking, wine, writing, dancing classes and more. Very affordable

Hi Gemma,
You could try joining a MeetUp group on http://www.meetup.com. There a lot of young professional groups for people in Boston to meet new people. Good luck! - Jarred

Hi Gemma,

Meetup.com is a great website that offers common interest group activities. You can join meetup groups based on hobbies, activities, location and more. It was helpful for me when I first moved to Boston. There is also an organization called Boston Young Professionals, which hosts several social activities in the Boston area for young professionals; their website is: http://www.bostonypa.com/.

Hope this helps!

Volunteer work. Best way to do good work, and meet like-minded people.

Good luck!

I would just go bar hoping or if there is a game people tend to be more friendlier.

Best Of Luck

There are tons of bars in The Harvard Sq area, as well as in Porter, and Davis.
The Back Bay is another option too.
The Back Bay tends to attract more professionals; thus making it a better choice for what you are looking for.
Best regards,

There a few sites that offer fun things to do for single professionals. Also you should check out a few local bars, restaurants, clubs in Boston. Friday and Saturday nights are usually best nights to go out and meet people.
