ok... dont come for the hospitals or the Sox.... BUTTTTTTT You have a jeep. there are some awesome offroading trails. Rockclimbs, mud pits etc. If you really OWN a jeep.. not just drive one, this should be reason enough
There's only a couple of spots in the country, where you can be on the beach and in snow on the same day (if your willing to drive a bit). California (Maybe Oregon/Washington State too) and New England.
We truly have four seasons (some overlapping others!), and for the adventurer, there's nothing quite like it.
Head of the Meadow Beach in North Truro. Camp at North of Highland, eat 8 pound lobsters at a picnic table and stroll in Provincetown. Go on a whale watch. Rent a charter for Striped Bass. Great state!
I would stay far from the Boston area if you are taking a tour of the US. Go to the far away places and you will be rewarded. My vote would be to visit the Bershire Mountains and Williamstown in the northwest corner of the state. This is some of the most beautiful landscape I have seen in the entire United States. Grab your camera and take the time to drive to the top of Mount Greylock, the highest peak in Mass. You will not be disappointed and will leave with some great panoramic shots of the countryside.
Enjoy your trip and be sure to watch out for Smokey on Cole Avenue!
Boston is not a tourist city. it is many things, but touristy is it not. go to the cape!!
A tourist in Boston is kinda like seeing a tourist in a supermarket anywhere else. We tout them around in the stupidest looking buses (duck boats) for good reason. Ask any real Bostonian, none of us have ever riddin in those things!! lol!!
Boston's where the world goes for college. enough said. if you're there for anything else, you just got lost in the biggest knot of roads ever!
You know how Reno NV is the bigest little city, Boston is the littlest Big city, all the big city attraction-museums, shopping, restaurants etc. but the public transportation system is deceptively simple and there is never any shortage of things to do in Boston, despite the season.
In spite of all of that, the only reason to come to MA is to visit, the politics, state laws, mandates, regulations etc. even on municiple levels to some degree are in opposition to my personal point of view, If I were'nt born and raised here I don't think I would choose to live here.
