My grandson picked this trip. What about staying in Boston and coming here for a day trip?? Should I think about flying into Springfield and out of Boston? I want to include Boston. I won't have a car. Thank you

I actually am not too sure about that. I am sure they do some events there throughout the year though. I would check their website or Facebook Events or give them a call. :)
