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.
Boston is known for historic sites, museums, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: stroll around Boston Public Garden, get engrossed in the history at Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at New England Aquarium, and get a variety of perspectives on Boston Duck Tours.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Boston online route planner.

The Route module shows you all the different ways you can get to Boston. In September, plan for daily highs up to 75°F, and evening lows to 59°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Sat) early enough to drive to Falmouth.

A small resort town with a year-round population of just 3,000, Provincetown draws nearly 60,000 annual visitors with its scenic beaches, art colonies, galleries, theaters, and shops.
On the 8th (Tue), kick back and relax at Race Point Beach, get a dose of the wild on Art's Dune Tours, then see the interesting displays at Pilgrim Monument & Provincetown Museum, and finally take a leisurely stroll along MacMillan Wharf.

Plan my Provincetown trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Drive from Falmouth to Provincetown in 2 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Expect a daytime high around 71°F in September, and nighttime lows around 57°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Tue) to allow time to ride a ferry back home.
