Part theme park, part kids’ museum, LEGOLAND Discovery Center plays host to a variety of kid-friendly attractions. They all feature the colorful building blocks you remember from your own childhood, but reimagined in contemporary and creative ways. The Great Lego Race even incorporates virtual reality (VR) technology. Kids buckle up in futuristic-looking two-person carts to participate in a virtual race, which happens entirely inside of a pair of VR goggles. Once they pull the goggles down, they’re plunged into a cartoon world where they’re behind the wheel of a LEGO race car, and tasked with the job of navigating it safely across the finish line. Elsewhere in LEGOLAND, you can experience real-life adventures on fun rides, or check out pint-sized versions of Boston landmarks constructed entirely of LEGOS. There’s also a play zone and plenty of interactive LEGO activities to keep your little ones entertained.
Whether you have a celebratory occasion coming up, or simply want to break up the brutal Boston winter with a fun event, check out Boston Brew Tours by City Brew Tours. They have exclusive tours running seven days a week with access to local breweries, plenty of food, and best of all, a designated driver. Try their Original Brew Tour or After Hours Tour for up to 16 beer tastings at four locations, a meal pairing, and roundtrip transportation. If you’re short on time, try The Sip of Boston Tour for all the same fun in a half-day timeframe. They also do private events, so if you have a bachelor or bachelorette party, birthday, or corporate outing to plan, let City Brew Tours be your host and handle all of the logistics. Great local breweries like Night Shift Brewing and Bully Boy Distillers are just a few of the participating
