We are headed to Boston at the end of Aug. We are driving from Buffalo, Ny and I would love some input on our schedule/plan. We will start out with a night in Buffalo on Thurs aug 22, Then on fri 23 we want to see some of the finger lakes region in particular Watkins Glenn park. I had originally planned to head to Saratoga Springs for Sat 24th,but since that is Traverse Day we will go there on the way back.
heres where I am not sure what to do, and I need to make a plan: Where do we go now?
Places we want to visit are Salem and GLoucester(MA) for Whale watch, Plymouth, MA for plantation, and Newport, RI for mansions. Then back to Saratoga Springs, NY (was thinking Aug 29th) for race and home.
I was hoping to arrive in Boston on sun Aug 25 for a three nights stay. and be home by Sat Aug 31. I just don't know how much time would be best for these places. I was thinking about staying in Plymouth for 2 nights and travelling to Newport from there. We wanna hit up the beach too for a down day. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I should mention we have kids aged 17(girl), 10, and 7.(boys). We appreciate any suggestion even with accommodations. I generally like to use priceline/hotwire and we are open to camping for 2 or 3 nights.
Thanks in advance!!!
