OT: Worthwhile going to visit Boston?

Hi all,
I will be travelling with my wife and two kids 7 & 13, to the USA for a conference in Orlando in November, but will be in NYC for the last week of October.
Whist there I am in NYC, there is a conference in Boston which I want to attend for two days.
Just wanting some advice on if I should take the family up to visit Boston?
I will be in the conference for both the days, so the family will be on their own.
If I leave them in NYC, then there would be lots more to do, I would think.

Not sure if they would get bored in Boston over those two days.

Thanks for your input, guys

Boston is one of my favorite cities, really has some allure. unless your kids like to shop at malls, not much to do in Boston unless your 21+

look of for miserable Red Sox and Patriot fans. they are douches. but like Rev said not much to do unless they go drinking which i hope they dont at there age. LOL my advice is take a train to Boston and leave the family in the city. they will have a better time.
Rest In Peace, Dad 7/2/09 Miss you...

Boston is nice but IMHO it's more of a drinking/college town. You do have the whole American History aspect but I don't know how interested your kids are in that.

In NY you have Times Sq, Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Museums. Catch a Knicks game, There's a 99% chance that they will suck again this year so tickets won't be expensive or hard to find.
Shops on 5th ave, maybe spot a celeb in SoHo or anywhere around the city.

You can pretty much walk everywhere or the subways can take you anywhere you need to go too.

theres tons more to do in NYC area than in Boston (sorry Red Sox fans), but your family is way better off in the tri state area than in Bean-town...enjoy!
