About BostonCentral

Since our launch in 2001, BostonCentral has grown to be the #1 web destination for family-oriented events, activities, and resources in the Greater Boston and New England area.

BostonCentral garners over 10 million page views per year; and our famous weekly newsletter has accrued nearly 125,000 opt-in subscribers to date. We constantly get feedback from readers telling us how much they appreciate the information we provide and how they have come to rely upon our weekly newsletter to plan their family fun.

We've really enjoyed helping to spread the word about all the fun stuff to do in Boston for the past 12 years, and hope you continue to enjoy the service for many years to come!

The Team

Stacey Sao, Founder & Managing Director
Stacey came up with the idea for BostonCentral when she moved to the Boston area in 2001 and encountered a great deal of difficulty finding useful, family-friendly info online.

Having been in high-tech marketing for many years, she launched BostonCentral to meet this need and provide great family-friendly information not only to newcomers, but also to local residents who are looking for great family events and activities. It has grown exponentially.

She resides in the Boston area with her husband, 13-year-old daughter Ami, and 10-year old son Jay, and of course the family parrot, and company mascot. She tweets about it all on Twitter at @bostoncentral and on Facebook.


Chelsey Bauer, Social Media Guru
Chelsey grew up in Marlborough, Mass but moved to Southern New Hampshire in grade school. She recently graduated from the University of New Hampshire with honors as a Business Management major with a Psychology minor.

In the past she interned with the United Way of the Greater Seacoast and plans to keep nonprofit work as an essential part of her life. Chelsey spends most of her time reading, volunteering and going on adventures with her dog Shyla.


Yoni Sternberg, Web Consultant
Yoni is currently studying at Clark University. Yoni has interned at Sol y Canto, a Cambridge studio that produces Latin music and Spanish voice-over recordings, and at Russell's Garden Center in Wayland.

Yoni lives in the Boston area with his mother, Sara, father, Larry, and the family dog, Lexi. He also loves music and often DJs on the weekends.


Barbara Rose, School Passport Program
Barbara Rose spent many years writing and designing for Boston ad agencies to support her arts and outdoor adventure habits. Most recently, she established the School Passport program on BostonCentral.

School Passport introduces students & families to the fun, educational events and venues on BostonCentral to expand student learning. Kids can then record & review what they learn on the safe School Passport forum. Writing practice is built in! Participants get rewards from partners.

As a mom, her daily mission is to find kid-sized adventures for her action-loving 12-year old. She delights in hunting down unusual and different activities for Boston Central -- especially the free ones!
