Growing up Kennedy

What was it like to grow up as a Kennedy in Brookline? On this one-mile walk through John F. Kennedy's boyhood neighborhood, we'll begin at his birthplace, 83 Beals Street and walk through the neighborhood to the second home the family moved to in 1920. On the way, we'll learn about the early years of the Kennedy family, including JFK's competitions with his older brother, parental expectations, childhood pranks and more!
