Advice on my itinerary

We are a family of four--two adults, two teens. We'll be in Boston next week. We are using our Boston lodging as a home-base to explore Maine, RI, MA, but will spend two days in the city. My kids' must-do's are the aquarium (I know, locals don't like it. My kids do), the museum of science, Pizzeria Regina and Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. We are driving, not using public transportation. Here are my current plans:


Museum of Science

Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum

Since we are driving, I'm considering going to Mr. Bartley's Burgers for a late lunch. What do you recommend for dinner (We don't like Asian food but any other casual teen friendly place is good)?



(park there and walk to other places)

Faneuil Hall

Pizzeria Regina

Old North Church

Any recommendations for dinner on Saturday?

Do you think I can fit in a tour of Fenway? I'm hesitant because it seems they can't be purchased ahead and I don't want to show and find out the tours are sold out.

Hi Cambridgetravler! Great suggestion to send the family to Castle Island in South Boston, but they are looking for Sullivan's for hot dogs, fried clams, etc. Kelly's Landing is long gone!

OMG you're so right - but still, a good hot dog, ice cream cone, etc at Sullivan's!

Thanks for telling me about Castle Island and hot dogs. The kids will love that. I was considering 224, thanks for the recommendation.
