Sometimes you just need a good laugh. How about hitting up a Boston comedy club? Some of America’s most popular contemporary comedians (Conan O’Brien, Denis Leary, Amy Poehler, Dane Cook) found their funnies in Greater Boston. Big names passing through town might stop at the Wilbur Theater or other venues, but it's easy to check out the up-and-coming scene at smaller comedy clubs or improv nights around town. Make a night of it with drinks at the best rooftop bars in Boston or set the mood with dinner at one of the most romantic restaurants in Boston.
