Boston offers family fun all year round. Colleen explored Boston for a winter break getaway, finding its rich history, seafood delights and hands-on activities are great any time of the year. Colleen kicks off the visit to Boston with a friendly greeting from the seals at New England Aquarium. She joins a family at the Harvard Museum of Natural History for a lesson in minerals and crystals. And of course, you can’t go to Boston without trying lobster! She and family friends learn how to properly crack open lobsters while discovering their connection to colonial times. And speaking of colonial times, taking a Freedom Trail Tour with a stop at the Old State House is a must! On this tour, we stopped at Paul Revere’s gravesite, the Old South Meeting House and Faneuil Hall.
If your family is looking for culture you might enjoy the Museum of Fine Arts, where Colleen and a family explored the museum using the Art Connections Cards. The free activity helps parents get even the youngest children excited about art. The vacation in Boston is rounded out with a dip in an indoor saltwater pool and a hands-on visit to the Museum of Science, where we developed our engineering skills. Boston has something for everyone, from freedom fighter to foodie and aquarium lover to budding artist … a great destination to add to your family vacation bucket list!
