Mid May Weekend Trip from Worcester or Boston

We would like to go for a few days in mid-May away from Worcester for our daughter's graduation from college.

There will be six of us traveling - 2 Seniors (70ish), 18 and 22 year old girls, and mom and dad.

Biking, hiking are not high interests and would be difficult for Gma and Gpa.

We would like to stay within a 3 hour drive/train ride/bus ride.

We could even leave from Boston.

We have done Newport and seen a lot of Boston - both great, but would like something different

Other ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

... or the Berkshires in Western Massachusetts. Lots of nice little towns with museums, concerts, shopping, etc.

Montreal's a great city, but I would be scared stiff to join neslaw1 in his 3 hour trip there. It takes me over 5 hours to drive there.

I vote for the Berkshires also. It's so beautiful and there is so much to do. Check out Lenox, which is sort of Berkshires Central. Also North Adams and maybe Williamstown.

We stayed at the Carriage House Vacation Rental. It was perfect for us
