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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Ogunquit Beach and Beacon Hill. Venture out of the city with trips to Portsmouth (USS Albacore Museum, Prescott Park, & more) and Footbridge Beach (in Ogunquit). There's still lots to do: explore and take pictures at Fenway Park, explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, and take a stroll through Waterfront.

A playground for America’s wealthy families, Lake George was nicknamed "Queen of the American Lakes." While these families often stayed in private country houses, a tourism industry built up around them in the early 20th century facilitated by two YMCAs.
Kick off your visit on the 16th (Fri): take in the awesome beauty at Prospect Mountain, then glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour, then see the interesting displays at National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame, and finally contemplate the waterfront views at Lake George. On the 17th (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: catch the contagious excitement of Saratoga Race Course, then learn about winemaking at Adirondack Winery, then explore the fascinating underground world of Natural Stone Bridge and Caves, and finally steep yourself in history at Fort Ticonderoga.
