I'd appreciate your thoughts on my plans for an upcoming family trip to Boston -- 2 siblings and their families (kids are teens who like history), along with the grandparents. We vacation together for two reasons -- to visit, and to see the sights -- so we really like a leisurely sightseeing pace.
This year we've decided on Boston, and we're very excited. We'll be there in late July, staying in Brookline, and planning to take the T almost everywhere. Here are my thoughts for our week there (We're arriving Saturday afternoon and will probably sleep in on Sunday). I'm hoping that we'll have some "open" time to do some walking around downtown Boston.
Day 1 -- Sunday afternoon -- Constitution, Bunker Hill, surrounding area.
Day 2 -- Monday -- Freedom Walk (except for what we've seen on Sunday), lunch, North End and Downtown. Monday night -- Red Sox game.
Day 3 -- Tuesday -- Day Trip to Lexington/Concord (we're considering using a small private tour group for this, since we won't have a car). Perhaps a tour with a stop at Harvard Yard on the way back?
Day 4 -- Wednesday -- JFK library; afternoon visit to MIT? (nephew wants to see it).
Day 5 -- Thursday -- Salem
Day 5 -- Friday -- Museum of Science; Gardner.
Day 6 -- Saturday -- we'll decide on that once we get there! We'll kind of go our separate ways that day.
I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thanks in advance!
