Kid-Friendly Attractions in Boston, Massachusetts

July 16, 2014 12:03 pm

Boston is a very family-friendly city, but sometimes you want to do something a bit more educational with your kids than the usual afternoon in the park. These two museums are a must-see for people of all ages, but they're especially tailored to the little ones.

New England Aquarium
Discover an underwater world at the New England Aquarium. This newly renovated facility is home to hundreds of species from around the world, including the leafy seadragon, fur seals, and the little blue penguin. Swing through the Amazon Rainforest exhibit to find piranhas, anacondas, and electric eels, and then take a peek inside of the all-new Giant Ocean Tank, which holds 200,000 gallons of salt water and is unlike any aquarium of its kind. The entire family will enjoy this fascinating look at ecosystems from around the world.

Boston Children's Museum
The Boston Children's Museum is an educational paradise for kids and their parents. Watch their eyes grow big as your children learn about the scientific world around them in the most entertaining ways possible. Make a mess in the Art Studio, sing a song in Making America's Music, and have a ball in the PlaySpace. Daily classes are provided to inspire and educate in an interactive manner, so be sure to check the calendar for upcoming events.

Wayside Country Store: Historic Shopping

July 9, 2014 12:04 pm

The historic building that houses the Wayside Country Store hails from 1790 and was moved by Henry Ford to its present site in 1928. A visit to the store takes you back to a simpler time when one small business sold just about everything a town like Marlborough might need, from needles and thread to pots and pans.

Today it’s more of a gift shop, where you’ll find glassware, cheddar cheese, crackers, ginger snaps, Boston bean pots, dish towels, cast iron pots, candles and more at this fun shopping spot. Head to the Old Tyme Candy Shoppe within the store to find a kaleidoscope of goodies to satisfy just about any sweet tooth, like bubblegum, jelly beans, licorice, fudge, cordials, chocolates, maple candies, truffles and sour candies. They even have sugar-free candies.

The Wayside Country Store is open daily near Windsor Ridge at Westborough.
