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.

Boston, Plymouth, and Cape Cod Trip

Overview

We would have to say the most exciting thing we did while in the New England area was to spot whales and a shark on the whale watching tour out of Plymouth. 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.

The house is the old Captain Taylor house, which was built in the 1700's. The accomodations are upstairs. Below you'll find a small tea and curiostiy store as well as the owners' living area. Although the building didn't have all the modern day features, it was neat because it felt a little like we were going back in time. The owners were real nice, too. The accomodations include 2 air conditioned bedrooms, kitchen, dining room, and a parlor with cable TV/VCR.

The restaurant is located right near the water and offers good views. The food is very good. Early in the day they serve food ouside from an outside window. The food is the same but obviously less casual. Later in the evening, the inside is open and the attire can be either casual or dressy.

Great quality food and a nice dining experience. They have a children's menu but at the same time, it is truly a fine dining experience place. It's a good place to treat yourself to a nice meal on a night out.

The crew is very nice and the tour was very relaxing. The naturalist on the boat was very knowledgeable and very friendly. They seemed to know exactly where to go to see the whales and sharks. It is truly exciting to see these creatures, especialy up close like we did. A couple of them came up close to the boat and checked us out.
