If you are looking to plan a vacation for the whole family sometime soon, don't overlook Boston as a great family destination. With tons of things to do for adults and kids, everyone in the group will be pleased with the choice to stay there.

When we first started planning our family trip to Boston, I began researching things to do with kids in the iconic Northeastern city. Being a destination brimming with history and having a daughter who loves stories, I decided to ask a friend of mine — a children’s librarian in Boston — for some reading suggestions to make our trip all the more enriching. She recommended Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey, which we have been reading for years. Another one of her suggestions was Mr. Revere and I by Robert Lawson.
