Hubby and I are looking to take a family vacation in July. He would like to go to DC, but I thought Boston would be a bit better since it's around his birthday. He's always wanted to go on the Samual Adams Brewery tour there. So he's said he's willing to consider going to Boston instead if we can find enough to do for 4 or 5 days. We wouldn't be traveling very far, we live in South Eastern Connecticut. And we'd have an infant with us as well as a 4 year old.

We know about the Childrens and Science museums, Freedom Trail, the New England Aquarium, and Quincy Market...

I'm just wondering what other attractions you might recommend to check out?

What about food joints? Anything local that you think is a "must visit"?

Thanks ladies!

I went to college in Boston.

I'd go to:

Museum of Fine Art, Boston
USS Constitution aka "Old Ironsides"
Boston Public Garden
Duck Tour

G'Vanni's (great Italian food)- its in the North End on Prince St
Fire & Ice- Back Bay on Berkley St

Not sure if you are into baseball and if so what team you like but...
tour of Fenway Park and Red Sox game

I could go on but its a start...
Big brother!

Little brother!

I live about an hour outside Boston and try to get there as often as I can... here is a good link for things to do: Visiting Boston: Things to do with kids - Boston.com. If you google "things for kids around Boston" you'll get a ton of sites.

There are great parks in the city to just hang out and let the kids run around and there are also some great cupcake bakeries. Sweet and Johnny Cupcakes are a few. Those are a personal favorite of ours - DS loves getting a just his size treat when we've been walking around!
You can also go on whale watching tours from the docs next to the Aquarium.

You could also do a few days in Boston and then travel an hour or two north to NH or ME. NH is a bit cheaper (no sales tax) and there are some great spots in the mountains for kids, like Storyland.

There is a ton to do in the surrounding Boston towns, too.

The others had some great suggestions. We had a fun day in Salem. It's very touristy there with all the hoopla and museums regarding the Salem Witch Trials but we had a fun day nonetheless. There's a lot of fun little shops and restaurants there. Maybe take a quick trip out to Plymouth to see the Mayflower too? I love anything historical. Have fun on your trip!

Thank you *Kiliki* for my siggy!
