Central Wharf, Boston
Families love a trip to the New England Aquarium. Before you even pass through its doors, you’ll find the Harbor Seal exhibit outside, where the animals swim and play. Inside is a gigantic circular ocean tank where colorful sea creatures swim by, each more amazing than the last. You’ll also get an up-close look at sea lions and penguins, and if you’re really brave, you can pet a shark – and all of this is just for starters!
