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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Fenway Park and Museum of Fine Arts. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Boston: Gloucester (Dolphin & Whale Watching & Fishing Charters & Tours). And it doesn't end there: take in nature's colorful creations at Boston Public Garden, walk around Boston Common, take in panoramic vistas at Skywalk Observatory, and get to know the fascinating history of Freedom Trail.

Provincetown

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 28th (Tue), take a leisurely stroll along MacMillan Wharf, identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, then tour the pleasant surroundings at Herring Cove Beach, and finally get lost in a book at Provincetown Library. Keep things going the next day: pause for some photo ops at Pilgrim Monument & Provincetown Museum and then stroll through Cape Cod National Seashore.

To see photos, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Provincetown driving holiday planner.

You can ride a ferry from Boston to Provincetown in 1.5 hours. Other options are to fly; or drive. Expect a daytime high around 63°F in May, and nighttime lows around 48°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 30th (Thu) to allow enough time to ride a ferry back home.
