Boston, Mass.

Boston is loaded with kid-friendly attractions that adults will enjoy right alongside them. There's the New England Aquarium, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of Science and the Skywalk Observatory located at the Prudential Center. You can take a restfully scenic ride on the Swan Boats that float through the lagoon at the Boston Public Garden or go for a spin on the carousel at the Rose Kennedy Greenway.

Throughout the summer months, families can also take a cruise to go whale watching -- maybe getting lucky enough to spot humpback, minke or finback whales.
