10 Free Things To Do In Boston With Kids
If you are staying for a few days, a Go Boston Card is a great idea as it provides discounts to Boston’s top attractions and allows card-holders fast-track admission, so you avoid the long queues.
Here are our pick of Free Things to do in Boston with Kids and please let us know if there is something we should add!
#1. The Boston Children’s Museum
It’s not quite free but near as so I had to include it! The Boston Children’s Museum only costs $1 on Sundays and kids go free with the GoBoston discount card.
It is packed with lots of spaces and activities where children from 3 to 10 years can explore the world around them!
“Everything is built at child height and the kids are encouraged to climb, play with and even touch the exhibits!” Andrea L.
#2. Explore Boston’s Parks
The grassy Boston Common is gorgeous anytime of the year. It has ice-skating in winter, but it truly comes alive in spring. It is the country’s first public park and a traditional carousel operates here in the warmer months.
Visit the neighbouring Public Garden and get a photo of the iconic Make Way for Ducklings sculpture, child-size bronze statues by sculptor Nancy Schön. Inspired by Robert McCloskey’s classic book, we picked up a copy of this wonderful tale as a lovely reminder of our Boston trip!
Rose Kennedy Greenway, Boston’s newest park, runs from Chinatown to TD Garden and the North End. Shaped like a narrow ribbon linking Downtown and the Waterfront, the park stretches a mile and a half in length with a series of parks, attractions, events, and revolving art exhibits.
