An exotic winter getaway may not be in the cards this February break, but families can still plan an epic staycation right here in the Boston area. Our favorite winter vacation activities include family-friendly outings and drop-off programs. The Blue Man Group bring back their popular February break week matinees; the USS Constitution's Lego Maritime Festival is back in person this winter break, and Powisset Farm has special school break campfires. You can even get a jump start on maple sugaring. And if you're still needing virtual distraction, let the kids take a piano, guitar, or pop singing lesson. Hey, we New Englanders know how to make the most of winter, right?

Our Boston Winter Fun Guide is packed with even more ideas for outdoor and indoor activities to keep kids busy with and (since we all need a break) without mom and dad. Or if you're ready to load up the car and make a run for it, check out our Boston Getaway Guide!
