Ideas for family fun:
— Ride the MBTA into the city. "We parked at Wonderland for $5 and then hopped on the Blue Line. The kids love the train, and since they're under 11, they ride for free."
— Pack a picnic, hang out in the Boston Common and then ride the Swan Boats.
— Take a Boston Duck Tour around the city. "The boys love that — the drivers are so entertaining!"
