There’s nothing wrong with a little organized sightseeing, and kid friendly tours are a great way to see everything Massachusetts has to offer. There are whale-watching trips off the coast and hikes through the Berkshire woods. For junior history buffs, there’s Benjamin Franklin’s Boston, a walking tour of historic Concord, and the eerie Witch Trial Tour. Or head south and take a scenic train ride through cranberry bogs and seaside villages onboard the Cape Cod Central Railroad. Finally, a trip to Boston isn’t complete without some quackery; Boston Duck Tours shows you the city by land and water (they’re still working on air). So if you’re looking for tours either on well-trodden ground or off the beaten path, you’ll find it in Massachusetts.
