Hi folks, I am planning a trip to boston over the festive period (26/12 - 2/1) and have a few questions. I would wuite like to get out of the city for a day or two and see a bit of the surrounding areas - are there any places in the nearish vicinity (ie day trips) that would be good to visit? I'm quite happy to rent a car if this is the best way to get around but equally if public transport is available then that's great!
In terms of what I'd like to see, historic sites are good, any nice little towns/villages in the area - a little bit of the local scenery would be good. I understand dec/jan isn't ususally the pretteist time of year but thought of maybe taking a little trip down the coast, maybe into rhode island?
What do you think?
