School Vacation Week Day Trips Within an Hour of Newton

Looking for something to do this week? We came up with a few ideas.


It's school vacation week in Newton, and that means a week of keeping your school-aged children entertained.

There's plenty of snow for sledding and snowman-making, however you might want to get out and explore science, history, art or more with your children. Or maybe you just want an indoor space to play? 

Here are a few ideas for things to do and places to visit this vacation week, within an hour of Newton:

And don't forget, there are plenty of other vacation week activities you can check out at the Newton Free Library, West Suburban YMCA, JCC and Newton Parks & Recreation.

Tell us in the comments where you venture out during school vacation week.

JFK Library and Museum in Boston! Not crowded at all on Monday.

Another suggestion: Metro Waterworks Museum on Beacon Street (right on the Newton/Brighton line, across from the reservoir.) There will be a family fun day Wednesday from noon - 3 p.m.

There really aren't plenty of offerings at the library this week. My child is 7 and the only activity was crafts today at 4.
