Help with place to stay...

Ok ..so this is my situation. My daughter is playing in a tourney in Byfield. So I have to get a hotel for that part. I will have my husband and two other younger children with me(11, 9) . They won't be thrilled with watching lax, but I was trying to make it more of a fun time for them too. I am sure there is plenty to see. Anyhow I need to be within 30 minutes of Byfield for that part.

After, my daughter will be attending a camp so we need a hotel for two nights with one of the days completely free to do something with my other kids. So I can stay a little further away if need be. I was thinking possibly the Cape Cod area/possibly right in Boston/ Portsmouth, etc. I am not sure what the big areas to visit with kids are.

I have never been to this area so I am completely clueless. I would love to do something fun with my kids the day we are off.

What are some really cool kid areas? Outlet stores? I am in dyer need of a hotel suggestion.

It is a quick trip of 20-25 minutes right up Route 1 or I-95 from the Hampton Inn in Peabody to Byfield. The hotel in Salem, MA is farther away.

There really is not much for kids to do around Byfield. The coast from Rockport to Portsmouth, NH is very pretty. Portsmout is a great town. Boston has lots to do. Otherwise not much else. Cape Cod and the Islands are beautiful, Good outlet shopping in Wareham in between Boston and Cape Cod.
