School Vacation Week

School Vacation week will be here before you know it - what are you going to do with the kids?  We've got some ideas to help you make this a fantastic week.  Our hotels have created special packages with families in mind.  The Cambridge Science Festival returns to the MIT Museum, the Boston Children’s Museum’s extends its first-ever hands-on dinosaur exhibit, Explore•a•Saurus, and the Swan Boats on the Common reopen for the season.  These are just a few of the many things to do this week in and around Boston. Scroll for more ideas! 

Take a break from driving and check out our Getting Around Boston page.  You'll be glad you did!
