After being rained out of our day time plans in Boston, we decided to take the kids to the Boston Children’s Museum and take advantage of $1 admission night courtesy of Target. Every Friday night from 5-9 Target sponsors $1 admission. As it was raining, we drove into Boston and parked at the lot across the street, which is $15 after 5. Not a bad price for anyone who knows how costly parking can be in the city. On a nice day, if I was looking for a cheaper parking option, I might drive around the area and find street parking or look into which T line to take.
If you’re thinking that it might not be worth dealing with the crowd due to the great price, I would think again. At least on the rainy days, the past two times we have gone, it really hasn’t been too crowded. Maybe because a lot of people take public transportation and don’t like to be walking in the rain.
The kids had a blast, which is important! We also saved a lot of money, which is necessary when you are working on a tight budget. Stay tuned for more posts on things to do with kids while saving money. I’d love to here your ideas of how you save money and still have fun with the family…leave me a comment below.
