Family friendly travelling in Boston

A rich and fascinating history, incredible food and plenty of things to do and see—Boston is the perfect place for a family vacation. It’s the ultimate location for learning about America’s revolutionary history, but that’s not all the city has to offer. In between seeing the sights, expect to indulge in fantastic food—from the Italian restaurants of “Little Italy” to the fresh seafood down by the bay. Don’t forget to explore the huge range of shopping opportunities too.

Things to see in Boston

If you’re visiting Boston then one of the top things to do is to follow the Freedom Trail. This self-guided trail takes you past all the historic American Revolution sites of Boston. The route starts at Boston Common, the oldest public park in the US, and ends at Bunker Hill Monument. If you climb the 294 steps to the top then you’ll be rewarded with fantastic views of the city. An alternative for a great vista is the Skywalk Observatory that has 360-degree views of Boston and an accompanying audio guide to learn about the city and its historic and cultural landmarks. There are plenty of other family-friendly attractions in Boston such as the Museum of Science, which has hands-on exhibits perfect for the kids. The Boston Children’s Museum is another great attraction, where children can learn about the world around them through lots of fun, interactive exhibits—they won’t want to leave!

Family-friendly hotels in Boston

There’s a whole range of family-friendly hotels in Boston, offering great service and the perfect place to rest with your family after a long day of seeing the sights. Kid-friendly hotels are centrally located or close to public transport—providing convenient access to the city’s attractions. You’ll find free WiFi and breakfast add to the comfort of your stay, and many family-friendly hotels in Boston also have an indoor pool and fitness center. When you need a bit of time to yourself, kid-friendly Boston hotels can offer childcare services and activities to keep your little ones occupied.

Where to stay in Boston

Back Bay is a great choice for those who want to be in an area that hosts an abundance of great shopping and restaurants, and from here it’s easy to reach all the major sights of the city. Downtown is a busier area to stay in but full of good hotel deals, and you’ll be within a stone’s throw of all the major attractions, malls and some great places to eat. An alternative place to stay is Charlestown. A quieter area, it’s particularly great for those interested in the Freedom Trail as it’s where the last stops on the trail are.

How to get to Boston

Being a major city, it’s very easy to travel to Boston via plane. Boston Logan International Airport is the point of entry for international flights, as well as domestic flights from all over the country. New York is only an hour’s flight away, and a lot of other major cities are just a short flight away (Philadelphia, Washington and Montreal take less than 2 hours to fly here). The airport itself is well equipped and has free WiFi, and it’s only a few miles from downtown Boston. Getting around the city is simple thanks to the MBTA.
