My husband and I want to drive from Ontario, Canada to the Boston area in early Sept. We'd take about a week in total, maybe 8-9 days at most. We have two little kids who will be 10 months and almost 3 years old at the time. We definitely want to fit in 2 nights at the new Great Wolf Lodge opening in the area (about an hour outside of Boston, I believe).
We were originally thinking of 2 nights in Boston, 2 nights at Great Wolf and 2 nights somewhere else - maybe Martha's Vineyard or...??? We're open to suggestions. We know nothing about the area.
Another possibility would be to do 2 nights at Great Wolf, 3 nights in/near Boston and then an extra travel night, and do a few little day trips along the way.
The only "must-dos" on our (*cough*-my husband's-*cough*) list is Fenway Park. He *really* wants to see a game, but that would definitely mean an afternoon game with the 2 little ones (and quite possibly, leaving early). The other alternative would be a tour (my husband would love to do both but I think that's too much of our time with the little ones...). The only 2 games in our week there are a Sunday afternoon game against the Blue Jays (which we'd love to see but the official tickets are already sold out except for standing room only) or a Weds game against the Orioles (which would be fine).
If we happened to arrive in Boston on the day of the game, is it safe to leave our car full of all our gear at Fenway Park while we're in at the game?
Any suggestions for our trip would be GREATLY appreciated! Also tips on where to stay would be awesome too. :)
