Boston Globe Travel Show

Boston Globe Travel Show promo
Another great show is coming to the Seaport World Trade Center. This time the Boston Globe Travel Show. February 8th - 10th, 2013:

Friday | February 8
4:00P - 5:30P (trade only) / 5:30P - 8:00P (open to all)
Saturday | February 9 10:00A - 6:00P
Sunday | February 10 10:00A - 4:00P

Tickets are $10 each, with kids 18 and under free. There is also a beer pavilion offering "Over 20 craft breweries and nearly 50 different beers from around New England and the rest of the United States!" Tickets for that are limited per session and run $25 online or $35 at the door (if available). If you use promo code EXHIBFREE13 tickets for the show (not the beer fest) are FREE. You can get a max of 10 tickets (per order). BSN13 also works, as does BOSPR13.

Our family went last year with a five year old and he loved the place. He still talks about the big guy on stilts, from JetBlue I believe. They also have a mini petting zoo, with animals from Sea World and Zoo New England this year, and culinary exhibitions. The crew from the National Geographic show Wicked Tuna will supposedly be there, too. (If you like to fish, visit the Wicked Tuna Facebook page to enter into their fishing expedition sweepstakes. You don't have to be local for that as the contest includes travel expenses.) There is also face painting and a Games2U vehicle for the kiddies.

Before the show, make sure you download their mobile guide. This will enter you into a chance to win an iPad mini.
