An August 2003 trip
to Boston by dwhen714
Quote: What a trip! We visisted the beatiful and historic Boston, Plymouth, and Cape Cod area. Although we didn't spend a lot of time there, we feel we were able to get a good sampling of their hospitality and the history there.
In Boston, we would highly recommend that you take a tour or walk along the Freedom Trail that takes you through the early history and events that lead to this country's freedom from England. Oh, and you must see the Naval Yard that houses the U.S.S. Constitution and a WWII battleship. They are pretty awesome.
Similarly, Plymouth has the early history of out country to present, not to mention all the seafood and views to be seen. In Plymouth, we would recommend either taking the Plymouth Trolley or just taking in the sights on your own. The best scenic views are along the coastal areas that reach to Cape Cod and the two islands of Martha's Vineyards and Nantucket. It is truly a beautiful area. If you're into lighthouses, this is one of the best places to see them.
One last thing, if you like to go to places to see famous people, go to Martha's Vineyard. On the island, people do not seem to bother them, not to mention it's beautiful there.
One last tip for cheap Boston souveniers: There are two carts in the Boston Harbor area that sell fairly good quality items, mostly clothing, for very cheap prices.
