Zoo
“If you need a day out of the city and a place for the kiddos, make your way to the Franklin Park Zoo. There is plenty of free parking, and the zoo itself is great! Not only does this zoo have multiple play spaces (slides, climbing structures etc.) but there is also a 10,000 sq ft. Playground in the zoo for a break and some lunch. Its a great way to give the kids a break from the regular Boston attractions. ”
