Have fun and frolic in this historic neighborhood. Boston is a city of neighborhoods and a great way to introduce kids to the city is not by dragging them all over the place, but to tackle it one neighborhood at a time. The Back Bay is a charming place to start. It really was a bay, part of the Charles River. Actually, it was more of a swamp than a bay and was considered a health hazard. In the 1800s it was filled in and developed over a period of 30 years. It's something to think about when you are walking around the area.

The Swan Boats in the Public Garden was a great memory for me as a young kid. Our visits into the city usually coincided with lots of other fun stuff, often ending with a Red Sox game at Fenway!
