My husband and I (50+) will be arriving in Boston late afternoon on Saturday, Sept. 24 and, since we stayed in the city previously, we would like to explore the surrounding area. We have 3 full days before we return to Boston on Tuesday evening but are not sure where to go. It seems we will be a little early to really appreciate the fall foliage but are hoping the leaves will have started to turn. Should we go west towards Berkshire or south and spend the time exploring Cape Cod. I noticed that Providence has a Winter fire night in the evening that we arrive. Should we head there the first night? I also wondered about going north towards Rockport area. We enjoy being outdoors, good dining, and seeing the sights.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
