Rich in museums, restaurants, shops, and historical sites, Boston attracts over 16 million visitors each year. New England's largest and most influential city, Boston ranks among the world's major centers of education and culture.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Franklin Pierce Homestead and Cliff Walk. Your inner history buff will appreciate Marginal Way Walkway and Cape Neddick Nubble Lighthouse. Venture out of the city with trips to ANTIQUES MARKETPLACE (in Putnam), Provincetown (Dolphin & Whale Watching & Race Point Beach) and Newport (The Breakers & Thames Glass Glassblowing Studio and Gallery). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Head of the Meadow Beach, steep yourself in history at Frye's Measure Mill, make a trip to Faneuil Hall Marketplace, and look for gifts at When Pigs Fly Company Store.

Writer Pearl Buck once called New York City “a place apart,” and this giant urban center remains unlike any other in the world.
Visiting Ponquogue Beach and Quogue Wildlife Refuge will get you outdoors. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Cupsogue Beach County Park and Gateway National Recreation. Get out of town with these interesting New York City side-trips: Woodbury Common Premium Outlets (in Central Valley), Jacob Riis Park (in Far Rockaway) and Jenkinson's Boardwalk (in Point Pleasant Beach). There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Fifth Avenue, look for gifts at Economy Candy, hunt for treasures at Chelsea Market, and pause for some serene contemplation at St. Patrick's Cathedral.
