Be on the lookout for whale-watching expeditions, harbor cruises, cultural events, food tours, charter bus trips to unique, historic neighborhoods and vast parks for relaxing day outs. Of course, you don’t need to blaze new trails to kid-friendly attractions in Boston, as they are strategically strewn all around the city. Here are 5 of the best that Boston has to offer!
1. The Freedom Trail Foundationwww.thefreedomtrail.org
44 School Street, Suite 250, Boston, MA 02108
Offering a nice mixture of shopping, dining, history, and entertainment suitable for people of all ages along the fringes of the ‘red brick road’, ever since the foundation was established in 1964 by the successor of the Freedom Trail Committee, the 2.5-mile walk is a must for newbies in Boston. You don't have to run the gamut and instead walk at your own pace in and out of 16 historically-significant sites in Boston which is typically completed in approximately 90 minutes.

The second oldest children’s museum in the United States, the attraction is a wonderland of fun and educational exhibits and hands-on stations that encourage children to flex their mental muscles. As you make your way to Fort Point Channel where the museum is located, let the kids roam freely around permanent exhibits like Arthur & Friends, A City Connects, Art Studio, The Common, Construction Zone, Countdown to Kindergarten, The Gallery, Kid Power, Johnny's Workbench, Peep's World, Science Playground and many more. Since most of the exhibits are topic-focused, it serves as an almost-panacea for those who are on the clock.
