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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Boston: Newport (Cliff Walk & The Breakers), Marginal Way Walkway (in Ogunquit) and Dolphin & Whale Watching (in Gloucester). And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at Museum of Fine Arts, take a stroll through North End, get to know the fascinating history of Freedom Trail, and pause for some photo ops at Plymouth Rock.

If you are flying in from Puerto Rico, the closest major airports are General Edward Lawrence Logan International Airport, Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, Theodore Francis Green State Airport and Portsmouth International at Pease Airport. In October in Boston, expect temperatures between 20°C during the day and 11°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
