From the waterfront to the Fens, and across the river too, Boston is full of family-oriented things to do. Take a walk along the waterfront or the Freedom Trail. You can visit the Franklin Park or Stoneham Zoo with advance reservations.
For those of you who favor urban chic, the traditional and classic or upscale funky, our shops and stores are certain to please. The quality and versatility of our imaginative boutiques, eclectic galleries and prestigious department stores are only rivaled by our distinctive shopping districts where you can browse the glass-enclosed arcades at Copley Place, Prudential Center and CambridgeSide, meander the open-air Faneuil Hall Marketplace, Legacy Place and Patriot Place and seasonal artisan pop-ups and stroll the brownstone boutiques and shops along Newbury and Charles Streets.
Designer and brand name outlet shopping is within easy reach at Assembly Row in Somerville, Wrentham Premium Outlets in Wrentham, Merrimack Outlets in southern New Hampshire and the Kittery Outlets right over the border in Maine.
