Veterans Day Weekend Things To Do in Boston: Baby Shark, Magic Show, Cruise

Set sail this Veterans Day weekend and take a trip to historic Fort Warren on Georges Island (vets ride free!) before checking out a sensory-friendly experience of all things nautical at the USS Constitution Museum. Young kids can learn to appreciate the orchestra at the BSYO's family-friendly performance of Peter and the Wolfand the always popular magician, Bonaparté, is back at the Coolidge Theater. If you think you can resist getting the song stuck in your head, Baby Shark Live! is coming to Boston for two shows on Saturday (do do do do do do...).

Check out our picks for the best November events for kids and free November activities for families, as well as our events calendar and Facebook page. We hope you, your family, and all of our wonderful U.S. veterans enjoy this long weekend!
