After walking the Freedom Trail, enjoy a leisurely dinner at Parker’s Restaurant at the Omni Parker House Hotel, a fine dining room, which is surprisingly kid-friendly. While you fill up on clam chowder and house-invented specialties like Boston Schrod and Parker House Rolls, the kids can chow down on some of their favorites, from hot dogs to mini hamburgers. Of course, the reason you’re here is to sample Boston cream pie, the hotel’s namesake pastry creation. The “original” recipe stars a sponge cake-base, which is filled with rich rum cream and crowned with chocolate ganache and toasted almonds. If the kids aren’t up to a formal meal, you can get miniature pies to go at the hotel coffee/gift shop.
