Boston Kids Guide

Boston is a wonderfully walkable city, steeped in history and rich in culture. In a single day you can experience moments of the American Revolution along the Freedom Trail, Chinese-American culture in Chinatown, and a taste of Italy in the North End. Boston is also home to world class museums and universities that offer a variety of unique and educational experiences to families.

There are so many neighborhoods in the city to explore, and each one has its own distinctive personality. We hope to help you discover the best things to do with kids in each of Boston's neighborhoods: Where to eat and play, special events, area attractions, and more.You’ll find gems like the Arnold Arboretum in Jamaica Plain and a truly unique sea life carousel on the Waterfront.
