Left early so the 3.5 hr trip only took 2. Hall of fame visit takes between 1-2 hrs. Cute activities for the kids to do. Not much in the surrounding area to do.

Even if you are not a basketball fan I strongly recommend this place for kids 8 and up. There is so much history and interesting statistics throughout. There are interactive things for the kids (and adults) to do at no additional cost. You can't leave...More

As an avid sports fan I always enjoy the Hall of Fames. This one is very captivating as it has a number of interactive exhibits. It also has many great picture opportunities. Good for all ages.

I honestly couldn't say, but there are probably bus trips to Springfield itself. :)

My grandson picked this trip. What about staying in Boston and coming here for a day trip?? Should I think about flying into Springfield and out of Boston? I want to include Boston. I won't have a car. Thank you

I actually am not too sure about that. I am sure they do some events there throughout the year though. I would check their website or Facebook Events or give them a call. :)
