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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Museum of Fine Arts and USS Constitution Museum. Escape the urban bustle at Race Point Beach and Cliff Walk. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Boston: Heritage Museums & Gardens (in Sandwich), Provincetown (Dolphin & Whale Watching, Herring Cove Beach, & more) and Plymouth Rock (in Plymouth). Next up on the itinerary: get to know the fascinating history of Freedom Trail, explore and take pictures at Fenway Park, make a trip to Louisburg Square, and look for gifts at Brookline Booksmith.

Expect a daytime high around 81°F in August, and nighttime lows around 65°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
