Being home to some of the leaders of the Revolutionary War, Boston has a plethora of opportunities for educational activities and seamless, hands-on learning. Here are 5 ideas for a family-friendly Boston experience.


1. Walk the Freedom Trail

Located in Boston Commons, the Freedom Trail is a 2.5 mile path through Downtown Boston. It highlights some of the most important events and people of the American Revolutionary War.

2. Explore the USS Constitution Museum

The USS Constitution Museum was pay-what-you-can (suggested donation of $10-20) and had a variety of fun interactive exhibits. (Turns out, we were *not* meant for sea life!) The exhibits are great for both kids and adults.

3. Visit the Boston Public Library

The Boston Public Library is one of the largest and oldest libraries in America. It is home to millions of books, art pieces, and more.

Across from the Boston Public Library, there’s a beautiful mural by the Lenox Hotel by Kelsey Montague. (She is known for the beautiful wings mural in Nashville, so it’s fun to see another one of her famous works.)
