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