Last week I had the pleasure of attending the media preview day at Legoland Discovery Center Boston.  The official open date is Friday, May 23rd, but we’re giving you a sneak peek here on South Shore Mamas.  There is SO much to see, but we won’t show you too much and spoil the surprise of finding out all the fun little details yourself.

Legoland Discover Center is a 44,000 square foot indoor attraction geared towards kids ages 3 to 10.  The center features two Lego rides, a 4D cinema, Miniland, multiple building areas, a play zone, a model builder academy, party rooms, and more.

The center is part of the new construction happening at Assembly Row in Somerville.   32 outlet stores, restaurants and attractions will begin opening in May, including J.Crew, LOFT Outlet, Converse, Brooks Brothers and Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5th, with more stores to follow this summer and in the fall.

Today I’m excited to help Uber announce the launch of their newest product – uberXL.  Uber’s car service has always been pretty cool, (what’s not to love about an app that can summon a professional driver to your location within minutes?), but now they’re upping the anti by offering you the option to request an uberXL vehicle, which can seat up to 6 people.   Even better, you can get $30 off your first ride.  Fabulous!

This past weekend, I was given the opportunity to take my family to see the Big Apple Circus show LUMINOSITY.  It was our second year seeing the circus perform at City Hall Plaza, and despite the torrential rain, it was a great night!    (Keep reading, there is a $10 coupon at the end of this post!)

Just like the ads say, there are no seats more than 50 feet away from the ring, making it a very intimate experience.  Being that up close to the performance is “pretty cool”, to quote my 10-year-old.   {keep reading…}
