New England Aquarium is amazing. It is a three story complex with a lot of thematized exhibitions and programs for kids and adults as well. 
I love the jellyfish exhibit, but the tropical area and the part with the penguins is also great. The penguins are soo cute and they are not afraid of you at all! You can see and actually touch the rays and see sharks from very - I mean very - close!
They also organize whale watching cruises, but you have to pay extra for that.

Boston Travel guide

Boston is US nation's history and myth capital. It was, until 1755, the biggest city in America and the most directly affected by the British Crown (you can see that if you only consider that it has the same name as the city in UK). Numerous evocative sites from that era are preserved along the Freedom Trail through downtown. Some say about the Bostonians that they are distant. But it's [...]
