At the moment, playgrounds might be hard to find in the Seaport, but there’s still a spot to relive your childhood. This parcel on the backside of the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center is now the de facto fair-weather hangout for nostalgic fun: watching throwback blockbusters like E.T. and Jurassic Park under the stars, catching live music from ’80s tribute bands and snapping selfies in the spot’s signature neon-glowing, circular-shaped swings. It has all the charm of childhood, but with adult beverages like ciders, shandies and hoppy IPAs.
