New England Aquarium

The New England Aquarium is a must-see for any Boston-bound children. A ramp wraps around the giant ocean tank, allowing children to see the different depths and habitats of ocean dwellers. They’ll especially love Myrtle the Turtle, who is well into her 90s, and the touch tank. This attraction can get crowded, so either go in the morning or an hour before closing, when you’ll also get to see the divers feeding the fish.
