Attraction

Quote:
The New England Aquarium is located right on the harbor next to the Marriott Long Wharf hotel. More precisely it's located at the Boston Waterfront. Here are also docks for tour boats or whale-watching tours. There is a parking garage nearby, but I recommend against it strongly, because parking is very expensive. For one day you pay $ 30 easily. I would recommend to park the car somewhere in an outer suburb and just walked a bit and save that 30 dollars! We have parked in Charlestown and took the ferry to the aquarium because the Pier is right near the entrance. Once you find yourself at the Long Wharf or Central Wharf, then you can't really miss the New England Aquarium. After paying the ...Read More

Mount Greylock State Reservation Photo, Hancock, Massachusetts
Quote:
The Mount Greylock, with just over 1000 meters is the highest peak in Massachusetts. In clear weather there is 150 km from the summit of one vision. The mountain is part of the Mount Greylock State Reservation, a nature park, which was founded in 1898. The area of the park has a 120 km-long trail system for mountain bikers and hikers and the Appalachian Trail, the famous long-distance hiking trail from Maine to Georgia, crosses the summit. Friends of mountain biking and hiking will also be in their element here. However, most visitors come to Mount Greylock in order to enjoy the magnificent views and the Memorial Tower, which commemorates the fallen of World Wars to visit. The summit of Mo...Read More

The Connecticut River Museum is located in Essex, a cute little town right on the Connecticut River, which lies of course in the state of Connecticut. Essex is a small place, which in itself is worth a visit. When we got there, everything was decorated very nice and autumnal. Since we are in time for Halloween it was hard to spot a house that was not decorated with pumpkins and more or less creepy dolls, which were attached to lampposts. The museum is located on the main road, a lot more down the road. Along the road there are several parking lots. If that's not enough, you can leave your car in the large parking lot at the entrance. From there it is in 5 to 10 minutes at the museum, for g...Read More

Hotel

In Salem, Oregon we wanted to visit some friends. We went looking for a hotel. The Best Western is good, said our friends, so we decided to stay there. It is a hotel on the outskirts of Salem, but with shopping malls nearby. It is a medium sized hotel with 100 rooms and about .. with only two floors. So no high-rise hotel.ParkingFor the hotel is a large car park. At the entrance are three handicapped parking spaces reserved. Parking is free, as in most hotels. Of these parking spaces are also for guests of Denny's restaurant. But there is plenty of space.ArrivalYou walk trough a wide door, which is also suitable for wheelchair users. The first thing you ...Read More
