I am unexpectedly finding myself accompanying my husband on a business trip to Boston area. Having lived in the west all of my life, I am thrilled at the prospect. But have no idea where to begin planning to eek out as much of this quick trip as I possibly can. I need some advice! I truly would love recommendations. On the whole - our passions are in the history and scenery.
I will be on my own during the days (in Newton, MA) - 4 in total -- but will have access to a car, until late afternoon/early evening when my husband can join me. I'd love recommendations for things I could do on my own, safely, as well as evening things to visit together. I'm hoping my husband can visit some great sites as well before things close up for the day.
For the weekend we plan on meandering up the coast, and possibly staying in Portland, ME one night and then Bangor, ME the next...meandering back the following day.
We did get to visit VT several years ago with a drive through the Adirondacks (loved it) so we are trying to stay a little farther east this time.
