Winter school vacation is coming up in a few weeks, and the weather in Boston has finally (knock on wood) improved just a bit. If you are planning on coming into the city, you can still definitely have a wonderful time, even if the weather is cold!
Here are a few activity suggestions:
- The Boston Museum of Science is reopening the Charles Hayden Planetarium on February 13, 2011, in time for school vacation. The newly renovation Planetarium will have state of the art technology, and is launching with a new show – Undiscovered Worlds: The Search Beyond Our Sun.
- The Boston Children’s Museum, recently ranked as the 4th best children’s museum in the country, has a new exhibit, Big and Little, featuring the shoes of one of Boston’s largest residents – Shaquille O’Neal through July 1, 2011.
- The Boston Common Frog Pond is open for public skating daily through school vacation week.
If you are looking for some places to stay during school vacation week, there are several hotels in the city offering special packages for families, including the Hotel Commonwealth on Commonwealth Avenue (near Fenway Park), the Four Seasons Boston on the Boston Common, and The Seaport Hotel located in the South Boston Seaport District.
