Hotels Near Boston - Keeping Costs Down

Boston Winter Activities
Q. Hello Again, I have a couple more questions for you. We are planning to do the Children's Museum, the Science Museum and the Aquarium. I was looking for another activity that was more active. Do they have any other indoor play areas/amusement parks that you would recommend. Free or $$.
What would be your other 2 top Boston highlights would you suggest to a family in the winter.
Your website has been great!
Thanks again, Patti
