April Break is just around the corner. For some families, that means traveling for a vacation away from home. For others, it’s a chance to relax at home and explore what’s in your area. Here are some April vacation week activities in Boston for those that are staying put.

  • Attend a ball game – Red Sox season has officially begun. Check out the team’s schedule and see if a Fenway Frank is in your future. If the team is out of town, maybe you’ll have some luck with Celtics playoff tickets.
