Memorial Day Weekend Fun for Boston Kids

Though many families leave the city for Memorial Day Weekend, staycationers should rejoice: Those of us sticking around have plenty of family-friendly options to choose from, all within a day-trip's distance (or less!). Appreciate all that embodies Memorial Day at the Garden of Flags on the Common, and ring eight bells at the Constitution. There are also several musical ways to celebrate the start of summer, from Boston Calling to a special campfire, and don't forget the always active lawn games scene. Families can celebrate Ramadan too. For something totally unique, kids (and parents!) can travel back in time with some aerialists
