Disclosure: Eddy and I worked in conjunction with the Massachusetts Tourism Board to plan our trip and received media passes for our trip.
Applause please, Eddy and I earned a huge parenting travel badge last week when we visited Boston, MA! A little confused since it seems we are always traveling with the boys? True we do travel a lot with the boys but they are always to super family friendly locations like Disney World and Sesame Place. This was the first multi-day vacation where we explored a city filled with history and a mecca for learning and technology.
Boston is one of the oldest cities in the United States rich with so many interesting sights, sounds and food that I knew the kids would love it.

Super Duck Tours
Want to see the best of Boston in an affordable and completely family friendly ride? You have to check out Super Duck Tours and Upper Deck Trolley Tours. We had such fun exploring the city on land and sea by these famous trolleys. I always recommend when visiting a new city to take advantage of these hop on hop off companies but Super Duck Tours stands out because for the premium package we also got a change to explore Cambridge, Harvard Square, MIT Museum and other popular attractions with the boys. Traveling with wheelchairs or strollers? Not a problem just reach out to the Super Duck Tours so they can accommodate.
Did you know that one of the leading private university in science and technology has a museum that is open to the public?
That is right, two floors of exhibits highlighting former MIT professors and students inventions and discoveries in robotics, holography and engineering. The boys LOVED it! Rock is now asking if he can go to MIT when he grows up. Love how he dreams big. If you are local try to visit prior to April 26 to take advantage of the Cambridge Science Festival.
Boston Children’s Museum was founded in 1913 and for over 100 years has been delighting children of all ages with engaging exhibits that sparks a lifelong love of learning.
Honestly, the boys wanted to go back the next day. Three stories of fun and entertainment for your loved ones. I wish we lived closer so we could get a membership and just visit any day we need a little educational fun.
Is there anything more timeless than a swan boat sail around the Boston Public Garden lagoon? Established in 1877 by the Paget family it is one of my favorite memories from visiting Boston as a girl. So I was thrilled when on our first trip with the boys it was the opening day of 2015.
An absolute must with the family!
The most recent addition to the LEGOLAND family located a short drive from Downtown Boston is Lego and Duplo lover’s dream.
Yes, you saw correctly in the video. There are rides, Master Lego classes, Ninjago training game, the City of Boston recreated with Legos and trading Lego figures with LEGOLAND team members. Plus the location is perfect. Plenty of parking, shopping and family friendly restaurants so a perfect addition to your vacation.
Looking for something special to eat or take home as a souvenir? With over 70 retailers more than likely Boston’s legendary marketplace will have it.
Just a short walk from our hotel; amazing eats, live music and excellent people-watching it was one of our favorite spots while visiting Boston. Plus the cobbled streets remind you how many thousands of people of walked these streets throughout the years.
The Dancing Hotdogs family was only there for two days and it just was not enough time!
Boston we will be visiting soon to walk the Freedom Trail, see the Aquarium and eat at Mike’s and Legal Seafood.
