Are you thinking of taking a family trip to Boston? There are lots of ways to spend the day once you arrive.

Boston Common

Boston Common is located in the heart of historic Boston, near some of the best Boston hotels. It is the oldest public park in the country, dating back to 1634. This is a gorgeous place for a picnic, a leisurely stroll or people watching. It’s also the starting point for Boston’s famous Freedom Trail. The adjacent public garden is a Victorian-era gem loved by plant and flower connoisseurs. Boston Common and Public Garden is on the National Historic Register.

Duck Tours

A great way to explore Boston is on one of the city’s famous Duck Tours. Sightseeing will never be more fun than on board a six-wheel-drive amphibious DUKW — colloquially known as a”Duck.” These modified two-ton military vehicles will immerse you in Boston history on land and in the water.

.

Harvard Square

Another way to get the full Boston experience is by visiting a spot that’s not technically in the city. Head across the Charles River to Harvard Square, and grab a seat at the popular Crema Cafe or whatever restaurant looks good to you. You can enjoy your favorite beverage and even strike up a conversation with the locals. Enjoy a leisurely stroll around Harvard Square, browse the shelves in bookstores and mingle with the intelligentsia.

Save your appetite for a Fenway Frank while watching a baseball game in Fenway Park, the oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball. Since 1912, Fenway has been the home of the famous Boston Red Sox. Before the game, you can get a close look at Pesky’s Pole and explore the stands above the world famous Green Monster, Fenway’s famous left field wall. You can even stay at the nearby Hotel Commonwealth in a room overlooking the ballpark.

Boston Symphony Orchestra

The city also offers a wide selection of musical interludes. One of the best is the Boston Symphony Orchestra, which has been making music since 1881. Today, the Boston Symphony Orchestra presents more than 250 concerts annually.
