Boston is a city with a wide array of attractions that can entertain both children and adults. When you plan a family vacation to the area, you can rest assured that there are plenty of fun things to do with kids in Boston.
The Boston Children’s Museum is one of the most popular places for families to spend time together. This long-standing facility has a great opportunity for families to engage and interact with each other and exhibits. The museum includes topics like health, science, culture, and much more.
The New England Aquarium is another great place to learn and have fun. The aquarium acquaints visitors with marine life that defines the waters of the region. There are also special programs, classes, and workshops for children of all ages.
The Museum of Science is a great place to visit for families that want to have an eye-opening experience in the natural and physical science worlds. The museum has exhibits that are good for any age as well as an IMAX Theater, a 3D theater, and a planetarium.
The swan boats in the public gardens within the city are one of the best Boston attractions for kids. These boats allow visitors to enjoy a peaceful ride for 15 minutes around the gardens at a very cheap rate. Kids love to ride in the boats and adults enjoy the gardens that line the shores. The boats are also a good learning experience because they have been around since the 1870s and truly define the image of Boston.
After the swan boat ride, your kids might want to take time to enjoy the “Make Way for Ducklings” statues. These sculptures are fun for children to climb and pet. The statues have been around since 1977 as images of the famous books by Robert McCloskey.
Children and families often also enjoy spending time at the Franklin Park Zoo. This zoo has a wide variety of wildlife with animals like tigers, gorilla, zebras and more. The zoo is open all year round and children especially enjoy the petting zoo area.
Boston is a historic city with a deep background, but children and families can find plenty of entertaining and fun options within the area as well.
