5 Accessible Activities in Boston


Boston is the capital of Massachusetts, and home to approximately 8.2 million people. It’s one of the oldest most historical cities in our country, founded in 1630. It was home to many important sites during the Revolutionary War and has created a unique and bright culture today. Below are 5 fun accessible activities to try during your next trip.

1. Freedom Trail
The freedom trail is a 2.5 mile long trail through the city of Boston that takes you past 16 sites important to the Revolutionary War. The trail is marked by red brick or stripes, and guided tours and audio guides are available to help explain the history behind each location. 

2. Boston Common
Downtown Boston is home to the oldest city park in the country, founded in 1634. The 50-acre park is located along the freedom trail and is home to softball fields, ice skating rinks, and concerts and other performances.

3. New England Aquarium
This 4-story aquarium is filled with several large exhibitions displaying a variety of different animals. Penguins, sharks and stingrays, coral reefs, and jellyfish are just a few of the incredible animals that can be seen here. The aquarium is open to everyone, including those with special sensory needs.

4. Old Town Trolley Tours
Take a tour around Boston on a trolley, which offer narrated trips around the city. There are maps online which show the buildings and attractions they stop at, and decide where you’d like to get off and explore further. Although the trolleys offer wheelchair accessibility, calling ahead of time can ensure a place for you and your party.  

5. Museum of Fine Arts
Boston is home to one of the best art museums in the World. It offers exhibitions featuring art from across all periods of history, and has one of the largest Monet collection outside of Paris.
