Boston
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.
Explore Boston's surroundings by going to Plymouth Rock (in Plymouth) and Heritage Museums & Gardens (in Sandwich). There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Museum of Fine Arts, take in nature's colorful creations at Boston Public Garden, explore and take pictures at Fenway Park, and take a stroll through North End.

To see more things to do, photos, maps, and tourist information, read Boston trip planner.

Situated at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Charlottesville is perhaps best known as the home of three of the United States' founding fathers, including Thomas Jefferson.
On the 4th (Sun), take in nature's colorful creations at Thomas Jefferson Foundation, then relax in the rural setting at Carter Mountain Orchard, and then admire the striking features of University of Virginia.
