Make sure to plan ahead and score tickets for Wicked at the Boston Opera House, make reservations for some 17th-century mini-golf in Plymouth, and book a spot for the lantern light show at the Franklin Park Zoo—yes it's back! Read on for the Best of July with our picks for fun things to do with kids in Greater Boston and around New England.
