Boston, Newport, Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard

Jump to last reply

Planning a long weekend trip for 2015. It is possible that we might go over Memorial Day Weekend or July 4th weekend(4th is on a Sat). These times would probably work of our daughter(she would be 21 by then, so who know really whether or not she will go with us, or what she will be doing) or we could go anytime during June or July if she doesn't go. I'm guessing most likely will go Memorial Day weekend or the weekend after that.

I've always wanted to view the Boston Fireworks, but just not sure what to expect and if I really want to fight the crowds.

This would be a long weekend trip. Probably 2 days in Boston would enough for us. Might possibly take in a game at Fenway, although we are not baseball fans at all. Having been to a few games we always leave before they are over(but have never been to Fenway). Might take in the Boston Pop/Symphony (not sure I know the difference)

Main interest would be seeing the "must" highlights: Gardens, Commons, Freedom Trail and Food.

Thought we might do 1 day to Newport to see the mansions there and then 1 day to either Cape Cod Area or Martha's Vineyard. I don't really know much about Cape or Martha's Vineyard. What are those area's like in late May?

Do I want to do Newport and Cape/Martha's as a day trip from Boston or do I want to spend 2/3 nights in Boston and then 2 nights somewhere just south of Boston?

If I did the Cape, should I take Car, Ferry, or the Train(Cape Flyer)?

We are big on National Parks (hiking, etc). Can do a little shopping but not sure that would interest that much. Do like good food and that seems easy to find everywhere, so don't really think I need suggestions for that.
