3. Hunting For Food
Boston is home to some of the best food, you just have to know where to look.

Everyone needs to eat, so why not do it in style!
4. Duck Tour
We know it can be difficult to convince your children to go on a sightseeing tour, especially younger children, but if you spice things up by going on a Duck Tour, this will certainly work to keep them happy and entertained. A Duck Tour has more of a party bus vibe, and the main attraction is that the bus can go into the water as well! There are also other tours just for the water, if this is something you are interested in.
5. The Zoo
The zoo is a fun place for people of all ages, but especially for children, so if you are travelling to Boston with your family, then you should definitely consider visiting the Franklin Park Zoo. There is a lot to see and do at the zoo and will keep you entertained for the whole day if you have that much time to spare.
