Need help finding someplace fun for my boy!

My little guy is turning 4 today, and we want to take him out for his birthday. Any suggestions for someplace fun and kid friendly (that isn't awful as well)? FYI, he loves pizza, if that helps! Any suggestions would be appreciated!

  1. I don't know how the pizza is, perhaps someone else will respond, but I suggest the Prince House of Pizza in Saugus, with the leaning tower, and then go play miniature golf with the orange dinosaur!

      The pizza is awful at Prince Spaghetti house, along with the rest of their food.

    2. how about PICCO in the south end. you'll both be happy!

        Yes, and they have great ice cream as well.

      2. Any place he can run around in and burn off some energy will make him happy. I'd go to a park or the Children's museum then to a restaurant with a patio. If you want to take a ride, go to Plum Island then hit Newburyport. We always found Redbones a kid-friendly place but the dinner menu (our preference) doesn't kick in 'til 4.

        1. I wasn't 4, but maybe a couple years older and we went to Durgin Park...50 years later I can't forget how great that Indian pudding was.

          1. I second Picco in the South End for excellent pizza and house-made ice cream, or Full Moon in Cambridge where he can play in the play area or with toys at the table, and you can relax and eat. There's a pizza on the kids' menu.

              Full moon is a great idea. Play area off to the side is great for kids while waiting for the food to come out.
