There is so much to do in Boston. Weather is great. Sunny/partly cloudy for the most part. Temperatures hover around the border between warm and hot. Humidity is there, but it isn't too bad.

As for the "best places" in Cape Cod, it's everywhere. The best places in Cape Cod, is everywhere in Cape Cod itself. It is all beautiful, I can't pick a favorite.

Do you like history?

Concord, MA! Drive 30-40 minutes west of Boston. Walden Pond! Sleepy Hollow Cemetery (the graves of Henry Thoreau (1862), Nathaniel Hawthorne (1864), Ralph Waldo Emerson (1882), Louisa May Alcott (1888))! Colonial Inn! Lexington, MA and The Minuteman National Park.

While you are in the Concord area, you can get on route 117 and if you've got children or like animals you can stop at Drumlin Farm! Check out their website and see if they have specific events for the time frame you'll be here... Drumlin Farm Wildlife Sanctuary


Salem, MA! Drive 30-40 minutes(?) north and see where the Salem Witch Trials took place!

Most of the sights in Boston can be seen on foot in a day. Then there are the museums and other cultural sites where you'd spend more time in that you'll have to choose from. Do you know someone in Boston? Maybe they can reserve some museum passes for you. One museum I enjoy is the Isabella Stuart Gardner museum.
