We are two 55plus folks planning a two week trip to Boston and New England to visit family. We fly in to Boston in mid October and fly out of Boston early November. Our family is in Bristol Vermont and Falmouth Maine and we intend to spend about three days in each of those spots.
We would love to see fall color but understand that we may be late for that and would rather see small towns, local arts and culture than compete for a view of leaves with thousands of others in their cars.
ALso - we loved spending time in Boston in the Back Bay area but the hotels are SO Expensive! Is there somewhere else in town that would provide good walking areas, museums, local arts etc. at a more reasonable rate?
Thanks for any ideas you may provide!
