Please help with choosing hotel and activities

Hello, I am planning a trip to Boston with my husband and two children- 8 months and 4 years old. Where I should stay- which area is the best to explore without renting car? Also what is the best to see, do etc.? Thank you in advance

Here is a great website for locating and comparing various hotels in and around Boston:

hotelguides.com/massachusetts/map-boston-ma-…

Once you arrive you will not need a car. The city is compact and walkable. If you need to use the subway it is easy to understand and convenient.

You would probably enjoy the aquarium, the Children's Museum and I think your older child would probably like parts of the Museum of Science.

If you haven't read him the story "Make Way for Ducklings" you should and then visit the statues of the ducks in the Public Garden. Then you can take a ride on a Swan Boat.
