Make Way for Ducklings

Family-Friendly Experience

In the heart of Boston, you’ll find a beautiful park known as the Public Garden. From lush summer greenery and springtime tulips to colorful autumn leaves and winter’s frozen lagoon, there is always beauty to be found here. But all year long, there is something, or rather someone, that can be discovered through the seasons. 

Near the corner of Beacon Street and Charles Street, you’ll find Mrs. Mallard and her eight ducklings. Inspired by the 1941 classic children’s book "Make Way For Ducklings", the bronze sculpture by Nancy Schön is a popular attraction for visitors, especially those traveling with ‘ducklings’ of their own. 

Make your visit to the Mallard family extra special with our Make Way for Ducklings room upgrade. The upgrade includes duckling lamp shades and chocolates added to your room, a copy of Make Way for Ducklings, and other exclusive amenities to take home.
