If you are planning to be in Beantown for Turkey Day, there are certainly a number of Boston Attractions that you will want to check out while you are in town. It’s shaping up to be a fairly cold winter up north in the Hub, but don’t let that dissuade you from coming to one of the most historical cities in the U.S. to celebrate Thanksgiving. It might not have the Macy’s Parade, but Thanksgiving in Boston is certainly an occasion that is worth celebrating.
If there is snow on the ground (and sometimes there certainly is) there are a number of indoor Boston Attractions that you may want to visit in the days surrounding Thanksgiving. For families with kids of all ages, the Boston Children’s Museum is an excellent choice.
Known for encouraging imagination, curiosity and exploration, the Boston Children’s Museum is packed with three full floors of exciting exhibits and activities for guests to enjoy. With events focusing on subjects like the environment, science and culture – plus a totally rad light-up dance floor – the museum is sure to be a hit.
Other great indoor Boston Attractions like the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, Museum of Science and New England Aquarium are also top options to visit with your family after you are done polishing off the mashed potatoes and gravy.
One outdoor place to consider is the Plimoth Plantation Tour. Visitors who take the Plimoth Plantation Tour will get to experience first-hand what it was like to live in Plymouth Colony when the Pilgrims first arrived on American soil. Plymouth Plantation is a living museum and many of the people who work there behave as if they truly were members of the Colonial English community or part of the Wampanoag Native American tribe in the 1600s. Millions of people from all over the world have visited Plymouth Plantation and you and your family could be next!
Other outdoor options in and around Boston are the daily Fenway Park Tours that are offered at the home of the World Champion Red Sox, the Salem and Marblehead Tour or a walk on the Freedom Trail. Another slightly different strolling option, the Boston Movie Walking Tour, gives guests a chance to see where hit movies and TV shows like The Departed, Ally McBeal, Good Will Hunting and Cheers were filmed.
