It’s school vacation week for most of Boston!  If you are looking to get away for a bit, and haven’t made plans yet, here are a few suggestions for quick road trips.

  • The White Mountains of New Hampshire. Storyland and Santa’s Village isn’t open for the season yet, however, Wildcat Mountain is still open.  You can also enjoy loads of tax-free outlet shopping (pick up some spring/summer clothes for the kids), and go waterfall touring (melting snow means more gushing water!).  There are also two indoor water parks right in the North Conway area.
  • Mystic, Connecticut. Check out Old Mistick Village for quaint shops, and the Mystic Aquarium for some wonderful kid-friendly aquatic animal viewing.
  • Freeport, Maine. Kids just love the original LL Bean store, and there are lots of outlets there also (unfortunately, not tax-free).

Are you going anywhere this week?
