BPW Day Trips

The BPW community loves to explore, so we’ve created one-day outings to help you improve your photo skills in fun and accessible locations just outside the Boston area. Pack your camera bag and get ready for an enjoyable, easy, and nearby photo experience with the BPW team!

What you can expect:

  1. Day trips are typically within 90 minutes of downtown Boston, but close enough to be transit accessible.

  2. Expect about 1.5-2 miles of easy-paced walking and a quick snack/coffee break midway through classes.

  3. Information regarding directions, what to bring, our route, and where to meet will be emailed prior to class.

  4. Locations for day trips are rotated based on the time of year and seasonal events. Check back in for new additions!

  5. Have any questions? Check out our FAQs or email us, and we’re happy to help.
