Find the many playscapes and splash fountains around the city and in the green spaces. Bring a towel for your kid and allow time for them to play and explore. Don't overbook your day with planned /ticketed items. Boston has so many parks and the littles are more than happy to explore them!

Use public transport to get to know the city more, unfortunately in times like COVID, it may be better using BlueBikes to get around, minimal contact with other folks. Never drive inside the city, because you will definitely go about in circles :)
