Hi! I'm planning a trip to Boston in August/September 2010. I intend to go on a tour of the Maritimes, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. The tour starts and finishes in Boston.
I wondering if anyone could please suggest an itinerary of things to see and do in Boston. It will give me an idea of how many additional days that I will want to stay in the city.
I love history, nature and finding out about the people and the culture of the places that I visit. Ideally I’d like to visit places that the locals like to go to, as they’re usually the most interesting.
I’m not into the nightlife i.e. clubs and pubs. I’d rather visit a museum or park overlooking the city etc. To give an example: when I travelled to Vancouver last year, I visited (and absolutely loved) Stanley Park, Grouse Mountain and Elizabeth Bay. I’m stopping off in Vancouver on my way back home to Perth, just so that I can go back to those places and also visit the other places in and around Vancouver that I didn’t have the time to see when I was there last year. I’m really looking forward to it. The Canadians are wonderful people! They’re so friendly, polite and helpful. I absolutely LOVED Canada and her people and have been yearning to return there. I'm hpoing that I will have the same feeling about Boston.
Any information about Boston would be very much appreciated.
