Boston for 12 year old birthday?

Jump to last reply

My niece is coming to stay with us in Charlestown this weekend to celebrate her 12th b'day (her parents have a wedding to attend).

She lives on the North Shore so she has been on duck boats, to the aquarium, science museum, Freedom Trail, Constitution for school field trips or with her parents.

I don't have kids - so looking for some fun, budget friendly late afternoon/evening activities & dinner suggestions. She is an easy-going, happy-go-lucky kid. She is already doing a bowling party Friday night with her friends before her arrival.

I was thinking:
Take the MBTA boat from Charlestown over to Long Wharf and see if there are any street performers in faneuil hall.
Swan boats (or is she too old?)
To see the Marathon Memorial (or is she too young?)
After dinner we can walk to the North End for pastry.

Thanks in advance!
