We will be in MA for 10 days the middle of Aug. We will be in Boston from Aug. 14-18 for business commitments. I am looking for some fun ideas to keep an 18 year old boy interested while my husband is working. Any suggestions on ways to break up our 5 days in Boston would be great. We want to see the sights without overloading on any given day. Because we have so much time we are looking for some fun activities to do that might balance the historical sight seeing that most tourists focus on (we do want to see all/most of the city). We have Red Sox tickets already purchased.
From Aug. 19-22 we have free time and can rent a car. I am looking for some ideas for close get aways. If we go to Cape Cod which areas would be most appealing to a teen age boy? And at this late date could we find a place to stay? What other areas might be fun? We love the outdoors. Whale watching, fishing, jet skiing, hiking, bicycling (unless the weather is stifling)etc. all would be great.
