If your kids plant themselves in front of the TV day in and day out, mix things up with a trip to Boston, where the upheaval of the British empire gave way to the country known as the United States.
Does your kid like tea? Does your kid like throwing tea? Excellent! You can’t miss a Reenactment of the Boston Tea Party tour.
On Dec. 16, 1773, Americans unhappy with British rule threw English tea into Boston Harbor in protest. Today, actors allow kiddos to throw replica chests of tea into the water as mini revolutionaries. Celebrate your cry for freedom with some real tea–or any other treat–at Faneuil Hall Marketplace. This historic building is home to everything from a statue of Samuel Adams to a myriad of dessert shops and clothing boutiques. If you’re travelling in summer, don’t forget a visit to the Hatch Shell. This funky outdoor auditorium puts on concerts throughout the warmer months. It’s not only family friendly, it’s also completely free.
After your days of listening to tunes and tossing tea, head back to your hotel in Boston. You can find a range of prices on inns and suites perfectly catered to families, with amenities like video games and movies for rent. Book right here on Expedia.ca to find the best accommodations for your brood without breaking the bank.
Create some family history together by visiting one of the oldest cities in America. Between touring the old sites and listening to modern music, you and the kids are in for some family fun in Boston you’ll never forget.
