Boston is officially in the dog days of summer, but we have a slew of fun ways to beat the heat. Families in town shouldn’t miss an opportunity to visit the Boston Children’s Museum, located just a few blocks from the hotel in Fort Point. Fun for all ages, the museum is an easy way to spend hours, so plan your time accordingly. When you see the building with Arthur the Aardvark waving from the roof, you’ll know you’ve reached the right spot.
This museum for the young and young-at-heart is the second oldest of its kind in the United States. From learning the inner-workings of heavy construction to interactive exhibits like the bubble room and a real two-story townhouse from Kyoto, Boston’s sister city, the museum is an easy way to spend an afternoon indoors. Visit on Friday evenings after 5PM for Target Friday Nights, and enjoy $1 admission!
It’s easy to work up an appetite while inside, but save room for some of the neighborhoods best bites after you’ve explored the exhibits. Sullivan’s, a South Boston staple, runs a snack stand from the iconic Hood milk bottle outside the museum. This is a great spot to grab general snack-type foods and take for a picnic at one of the many tables and chairs lining Fort Point Channel. If you want something a bit heartier, try the Barking Crab, one of the city’s most popular seafood hangouts just a short walk from the museum.
