Boston & New England

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are a planning a trip to Boston from May 3 through May 7. We will be traveling with our 8 month old daughter. We arrive at Logan at 9:30 am on Thursday, May 3. Our flight departs on Monday evening at 8 pm.

We would like to spend the first two days/nights relaxing and unwinding. Tentatively, I was thinking that we could head north of Boston since we both have visited Cape Cod and the weather will be too cool for hanging out on the beach all day. I would love your suggestions as to hotels, structuring our sightseeing, etc. We both like history, walking/shopping, sightseeing, and nice restaurants. We can't really do nature hikes/biking because of the baby. Ideally, we would like quaint towns, low-stress, charming, hopefully romantic. However, my hubby tends to get bored somewhat easily so we definitely need things to do, lingering in any one place for too long probably wouldn't work. Places that that I have considered are: Kennebunkport, Ogunquit, Rockport. Inn by the Sea also looks nice. Perhaps Portsmouth for lunch/ a couple of hours to sightsee.

We plan on driving into Boston on Saturday morning and returning the rental car. We will then have all day Saturday, Sunday, and Monday to explore Boston.

Look forward to your advice!
