North Shore Music Theater in Beverly is a non-profit theater that stages musical revivals, concerts and children’s theater. 

American Girl Places in Natick is the perfect fantasy place for girls of all ages.  This place is loaded with American Girl dolls along with clothes, accessories and books.  They even have matching outfits for your little girl to match her American Girl doll.  There is a café where girls can have lunch with their dolls.  American Girl even hosts birthday parties for girls.

Metro Rick Climbing Gym in Everett is the perfect place to get in from the rain.  They have beginner to advanced courses.  They have after school programs, birthday parties and sleepovers.

Skylite Roller Skating Rink in Worcester offers roller skating for all ages.  They have family nights, day skating and birthday party options.

Children’s Museum is Easton is a fun place for all ages.  It is a place of educational, cultural and social learning with three floors and over 100 programs for kids to explore.  I brought my grandkids here and they loved it.  They have an outdoor area where kids can take part in the wildlife, the environment and gardening.  They also hold birthday parties and summer camps.

Harvard Square in Cambridge is a place where you can find all kinds of bookstores, coffee houses, shopping and eating.  They have great programs for kids such as family concerts.  They have a cool place called Veggie Planet where they have vegan food. 

Sandy Bay Stables in Rockport offers horseback riding lessons for ages 8 and up. 

Beaver Brook Playground in Belmont is a great place to take the kids on a sunny summer afternoon.  They have swings, climbing stuff and sand areas for kids to play in.  They neat thing is that they have different play areas.  On the left side as you enter the park, there is the sand pit where the younger kids like to play.  They also have a picnic area so you can have lunch or snack while playing.  The most popular area of the playground is the large spray pool.

            Robbins Farm Park in Arlington has a new playground with overlook area with seating for summer movie nights. 

            Christopher Columbus Park in Boston is part of the Boston Harborwalk.  This playground is so much fun with a huge climbing structure with ladders and slides.  The area is fenced in so parents can sit on the benches and watch as the kids play.  The only thing I didn’t like about this park is there are no swings at all. It is mostly geared towards younger kids under the age of seven.

            So next time you are in Boston, check out these great happenings.
