We stayed at Peters Pond in Sandwich, MA. It's clean and child friendly. Drove our vehicle to local bus stop, left it there for the day. Took bus to Boston, figured let them do the driving. Walked from the bus/train station to the wharf - not that far. Bought tickets for the trolley (it's on/off) to visit the sites. Boston is up/down lots of walking, even using the trolley. There's a visit Boston website that's very useful. It has ticket packages and schedules. Make sure you take good walking shoes and water. Have fun, we sure did.

Wompatuck state park. Hands down.

GREAT state park. Very close to the city, close enough to Cape Cod/Salem etc. We stayed for a week last September and had an absolute blast. What an amazing city and even better surrounding area.

We are staying at Normandy Falls, maybe a little farther out than you want. Has anyone stayed at NF yet?

Normandy Falls or Normandy Farms?? We stay at Normandy Farms and love it! It has everything you would want. the sites are quite nice and a good selection of wooded, field, pull through, back in, etc. It's our favorite. And their "snack bar" is a full service restaurant...lobster dinners caught the same day, hand made pizzas, wraps, farm fresh ice cream. You won't regret it.

Hingham

No the ferry is not walkable from state park in Hingham which by the way is Wompatuck State Park.There is a parking lot where you park for the day for about 3.00.You will not want to drive in Boston!When we left the area to head home we had to drive outside of Boston and it took us over an hour an a half to get out of the area the morning we left.It is a very busy city!
Hope this helps.

Normany Farms Campground

Higher end campground but in Foxboro close to Boston, Providence, the Outlets and most importantly minutes to the Patriots stadium. A bit more rustic would be to head to Bourne Scenic park on the Cape Cod canal which is a beautiful spot. On opposite end of canal is Scussett State Beach and campground. No fires allowed but a really nice spot. Bikes are perfect on the last two as the canal has a 7 mile rec road. Depending on how often you want to head the city is a consideration as this is about a 50 min. drive. Good Luck and enjoy the area.
