    Another request for enlightenment from NSC.

    Heading to Boston (in the Fall) with the missus and an 18 and 16 year old in tow.

    Any tips. Must sees? Have done a lot of the US but have never got to Boston.

      Hire a car and go to Cape Cod - should be stunning at that time of year.

      Boston is an excellent city, stuffed full of sights. Perm any number from Museum of Fine Art, museum of contemporary art, Harvard natural history museum, MIT museum, tea party ships, Paul Revere House, JFK Presidential library, Ted Kennedy Centre, USS Constitution... the list is endless. Walk around Cambridge, walk around Harvard, amble around the leather district (brilliant restaurant there - O Ya), take a boat trip. Drive out to Cape Cod.

      Trips to Cape Cod, Marthas Vinyard definately worthwhile. In the city, take the city tour bus (hop-on-hop-off) to see all the best sights. (we sit on it once all the way round, about 2 hours, and then go back to the bits we want to spend time at). You can get a 1 or 2 day ticket wich includes a 45 min boat tour of Boston Harbour. Highlights for us were Fenway Park Baseball Stadium, (Game or no game!) Beer at the 'Cheers' bar next to the Boston Public Garden, Lunch at the top of the Prudential centre overlooking the city, trip on the subway to Harvard university in Cambridge, shopping on Boyleston Street.

      Catch a train to Manchester! Spectacular scenery.
