We always like to include some educational activities during our family travel TV shoots because we think it’s important that families take advantage of the history and culture each destination provides. We also like to make that learning fun!
Lobster, sushi, oysters...all fit for a family of foodies visiting Boston on vacation! When in Boston, you’ve got to try classic New England fare and we were invited to meet Executive Chef Rick Vellante at Legal Seafoods to learn how to perfectly crack lobster to get the most meat possible.
Art museums are luring families with a variety of creative activities for kids and the MFA, Boston offers some of the best activities we’ve seen in all our travels. They have several very clever programs for families with children of all ages.

Boston offers family fun all year round and one of our favorite family attractions during our family vacation TV shoot was a trip to the New England Aquarium. It provided the best of both worlds...entertainment mixed with education.
