With the impressive Boston Bruins, Red Sox, Celtics, and New England Patriots, the sports atmosphere in Boston is incredible. The entire family can enjoy professional ice hockey or basketball at the TD Garden, or hop on the T and head across town to visit the legendary Fenway Park. Even in the winter Fenway is a must see for any sports fan. With the 2015 division champion New England Patriots less than an hour west of the city you won’t find better sports viewing than Boston.
If your family likes to stay active the Boston Common is often home to sledding and ice skating. Skiing is another wonderful family activity Boston provides. Ski Bradford, less than an hour from Boston, is the ideal location for a family ski trip, regardless of skill. For new skiers of any age, learning to ski with great instructors makes all the difference, so Ski Bradford employs some of the best instructors and gives the most lessons in New England.
A visit to the Children’s Museum, in the Seaport District of Boston, can also be entertaining and fun. Kids can appreciate learning with hands-on engagement that could very well spark their curiosity and creativity in science, the arts, or culture!
This historical city is also known for the arts, and offers year-round film festivals that children and parents alike can enjoy. A trip to Boston can also introduce children to the theater with incredible performances by the Boston Ballet and the always entertaining Blue Man Group to name a few. For those on a tighter budget, Berklee College of Music offers incredibly entertaining and free, or near-free, performances.
Take in the impressive sites with guided tours, a cruise around Boston Harbor, or a visit to Paul Revere’s house for a glimpse of American Colonial life. Enrich the mind with incredible performance art or get into athletics with a professional game or day ski trip to Ski Bradford. With so many incredible options in Boston, a family trip can be awesome for the entire family.
