    Default Boston and North - 7 Days - End of August - Where to go???

    We're flying into Boston the last week of August and spending 7 nights. I figure we would spend 3 of them in general Boston area, but am looking for places to go north, into perhaps ME, VT, NH.

    We are 2 adults, and 2 teens. Oldest teen is a history nut, youngest teen just wants to go to Fenway Park.

    We aren't much for sitting around, always on the move.

    Thanks for your ideas.

    If your son likes history, you might consider a trip to the Plimouth Plantation in Plymouth south of Boston. Characters in period costume have assumed the identity of actual Mayflower Pilgrims and speak as if they were actually back in the 1600's.

    You'll also want to be sure and walk the Freedom Trail in Boston.

    North of Boston, Gloucester and Rockport are both nice seaport towns. If you're familiar with the movie The Perfect Storm, Glouscester is where they sailed from. The sister ship of the Andrea Gayle might be in port. You can also take a whale watching cruise from Gloucester.

    Have A Great Trip!!

    I can't argue with any of Charlie's suggestions, but here are quite a few more.
