Boston is the place I’ve called home since 2010 and I love working with local events, brands, restaurants and more. Here’s some of my favorite things to do and places to go in Boston.

Family-Friendly Stuff to Do

We visited Fenway Park for Graham’s 5th birthday. I also got a chance to see my first game, complete with a tour and watching batting practice on the field.

In Copley Square or Back Bay? Give the kids a pit stop at the new Children’s Room at the Boston Public Library.

Use the MBTA or Uber to get around. Because you really don’t want to drive here.

Go see the Blue Man Group! Great for kids and adults.

The Big Apple Circus comes every year to Government Center.

Go to the Common, ride the Swan Boats, and go to our giant Walgreens Flagship store for supplies.

Go to the MFA and take advantage of all their kid-friendly stuff.

Take a cruise around the harbor on the Odyssey.

Seasonal Activities

Try the Pakeen Farm for pumpkin picking, small and close to the city. 

In the summer, you can pick Cherry Tomatoes at Ward’s Berry Farm, which also has a great old school playground and petting zoo.

Fun Stuff for Grownups

Go see a show at the Merrimack Rep in Lowell. I’ve seen some great shows there.

The MFA is fantastic without kids, too, or check out my favorite museum, the Isabella Stewart Gardner.

Watch the 4th of July fireworks from a kayak on the Charles River.

Get tickets to the Boston Ballet
