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.
Take a break from the city and head to Dolphin & Whale Watching and Cliff Walk. Popular historic sites such as Marginal Way Walkway and Old North Church & Historic Site are in your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Boston: Shining Sea Bikeway (in Falmouth), St. Mary's Catholic Church (in Newport) and Plymouth Rock (in Plymouth). The adventure continues: appreciate the extensive heritage of Freedom Trail, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Fine Arts, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Granary Burying Ground.

Concord is a town in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, in the United States. Start off your visit on the 20th (Sat): immerse yourself in nature at Walden Pond State Reservation, steep yourself in history at Buckman Tavern, look for all kinds of wild species at The Butterfly Place, then contemplate the long history of Louisa May Alcott's Orchard House, and finally witness the site of a historic battle at Minute Man National Historical Park. Here are some ideas for day two: look for all kinds of wild species at Moore State Park, look for all kinds of wild species at Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary, then snap pictures at North Bridge, and finally identify plant and animal life at Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge.
