Last night, we met up with some friends at the Boston Children's Museum! Why? $1 Friday nights from 5 pm to 9 pm! $4 for a couple hours of fun was great! Many thanks to Target for sponsoring such a great event! I was also able to score a parking spot on the street - so no $11 or $13 parking for me! ha ha ha ha! I feel like such a bandit when I score free or meter parking in Boston!
Here's a couple random cheap things to do in the city. If you know of any other deals out there, let me know!
