My husband & I are arriving in Boston Oct 13/04. We have 5 days and would like to see some of Boston and the country colors this time of year. Can anyone provide help on best way to see the countryside (bus, rent car, ferry, ??)? We'd like to stay over 1 night - possibly somewhere Cape Code (which place though?) OR should we be looking at Rockport/Gloucester? Recommend place to stay in either? Not looking for anything expensive! Also, where would be the best area to stay in Boston? Recommend hotels? We will probably walk or learn to take the T every where.
One more thing...recommend good eating places, best sites not to miss.
Appreciate ANY help! Thanks.
