What we're about

Welcome to Free And Cheap Things in Boston (aka FACT-Boston)!

FACT-Boston has two primary objectives:

(1) inform people about free (or darn cheap) things to do in Boston that they might not otherwise know about, and

(2) help people find others to do those things with, in case they don't feel like doing them alone.

We'll find fun things to do that are either free or cost no more than $10. And we'll make some new friends in the process!

Here's to finding many FACTs (Free And Cheap Things) in Boston!
