When you are in the mood to take a class trip with the kids, why not consider leaving your school and heading to Boston? There are enough activities there to keep the class busy for at least eight hours or more. Here’s a peek at some of the ones other group travel tours enjoy:
Boston Children’s Museum
If you are looking for an inexpensive and educational activity, consider heading to the Boston Children’s Museum on a Friday night. That’s when they let people pay $1 each to get into the museum as opposed to the normal $14 fee. The list of not-to-miss exhibits includes the Construction Zone, Art Studio, Investigate, New Balance Climb and Countdown to Kindergarten.
Boston Common Frog Pond
On those days when the kids want to spend most of their time outdoors, try the Boston Common Frog Pond. It has a large scale spray pond that has features similar to the ones found in many major cities and a kiddie carousel. Plus, there are free yoga classes and a café onsite too. To get there, just hop onto the MBTA and take it to Park Street or Downtown Crossing.
Boston Harbor Islands
Feel like island hopping instead? You and your students could always take the MBTA to the Long Wharf North and grab the ferry. It will take you Boston Harbor Islands, where the kids can hike, enjoy the beach, fish, stamp box or try their hand at being junior rangers. Sometimes there are special events taking place at some of the islands as well.
Boston Public Gardens
Lastly, your group may adore visiting the Boston Public Gardens. In addition to all of the plant life, its home to several sculptures and the famous swan boat rides. A few of the sculptures that the kids may love to look at are the Ducklings and the Japanese Lantern.
