Can I get a gate pass at Boston Logan?

My wife is flying with our twin sons to Seattle (God bless her) on Wednesday. I'd like to accompany her to the gate to help with luggage, car seats, etc. They're flying JetBlue. When I worked for the airlines (post-9/11) this wasn't an issue and I'm wondering if this is still true.

Planning stuff to do in Boston in February?

I'm going to be in Boston in mid-February, 2018, for a few days (which days are yet to be determined). What should my family and I do while we're there that requires advance planning? For example: when we went to DC, I got tickets to the African-American History Museum months in advance. I used to live in Boston but I don't know what's going on now. We've got adults, teens, tweens, with a variety of interests.

Askme Hopstop - Medford to Boston edition

So my daughter and I have been gifted a place to stay in Medford, MA, this weekend and we have a super tight schedule. We will be on Frederick Ave in Medford and need to know the fastest way to get to the Museum of Science. There is apparently no Hopstop for Boston, so I'm hoping that one of you amazing nerds can help out some other nerds to get there.

How long to connect flights at Logan International?

On the return leg of our American incursion, we'll be flying in from Florida and connect to our international flight with Delta. Currently JetBlue arriving 3 1/2 hours before our international flight departs is looking like the best option. Is that enough time to get our luggage in Jetblue (Terminal C) and then get through to Delta (Terminal A) check in and clear security?
