Boston Tourism with kids

Kids Love Boston. (Parents Love to Save Money.)  February 5, 2015 – 07:13 pm

There are loads of fun things for families to do throughout Boston. Many are free (such as the massive Outside the Box performing arts festival being held July 13 to 21), while others cost money. Spending money to have fun is unavoidable, but we can at least help you save some of your hard-earned cash. Just head on over to our Kids Love Boston page and print out the Boston ValuePASS. It's your ticket to discounts and deals around our fair city.

For example, just flash the pass at the Franklin Park Zoo's ticket window and receive a free child admission with the purchase of an adult admission. Pretty nifty, huh? Or show your pass to the folks at the Liberty Fleet of Tall Ships, and one child per paying adult gets to ride for free on all regular afternoon sails, such as the Boston Tea Party Reenactment.

There are over 70 special offers in all, including attractions, restaurants (how about introducing your kids to the joys of a traditional New England Clambake for only $19.95 at McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurant?), and retail shop discounts (including a bunch of deals at The Shops at Prudential Center). The summer Boston ValuePASS is good through October 31, 2013.

Portland, ME

Been there about ten years ago, on business. Pretty much a vacation area. I referred to it as 'Lobsterland'. In addition to tourism only other industry is fishing and small manufacturing. Nice area though maybe too cold for some during the winter. Pretty laid back, nice quiet community for artists and independent types. Points of interest are Freeport (Home of L.L.Bean) and summer home of first President Bush in Kennebunkport. Nice if you're into the outdoors, largest big city is Boston. Local economy maybe in a slump, I don't have any recent information.

Re: Las Vegas, baby!

Let's take a closer look at Vegas. Two of the 5 "hottest" jobs are construction project manager and superintendent. With the downturn in the market, I'm sure those are holding up well ;-)
The article acknowledges the housing bust and concedes that 1/6 of Vegas' workforce is in the construction and real estate industries.
The boon was in tourism as the value of the U.S. dollar fell last winter. So if I want a job as a waitress or at MGM Mirage, yep, Vegas is the place to move!
And all this from the source that assured us that Boston and Miami were bubbleproof. *Grin*
