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 busy week.  Our hotels have created special packages for family fun, Faneuil Hall is showing free movies and offering family-friendly dining specials.  Blue Man Group is adding weekday matinees during the winter break and Lego Land is opening the brand new LEGO® City Builder area just in time for this week.  These are just a few of the many things to do this week in and around Boston.
