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.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Long Point and Nantasket Beach. Museum-lovers will get to explore Pilgrim Monument & Provincetown Museum and Museum of Fine Arts. Get out of town with these interesting Boston side-trips: Provincetown (Race Point Beach & Herring Cove Beach), Plymouth Rock (in Plymouth) and Cape Cod Canal (in Buzzards Bay). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Crane Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site, immerse yourself in nature at Walden Pond State Reservation, and get some jogging in at Charles River Esplanade.
