First Trip to Boston--7 days w/ rental car

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are going to Boston August 31st for seven days. We are staying at a VRBO condo in the North End, and have a rental car. We are 28 and 33, and like to walk. Having trouble deciding how many day trips to take. We love history, outdoors, and old homes. Here are some places we want to go, but need to know if they are a "must" see.

--Salem (heard mixed reviews)
--Concord (really want to go to Louisa May Alcott's house; HUGE book fan)
--Newport, RI (tour mansions)
--Portland, ME (thinking should probably save this for another trip so we could actually spend a night there)
--Block Island
--Martha's Vineyard
--Cape Cod

I want to save at least three days for Boston. Also have tickets for a Red Sox game.
This is also a babymoon, so we want to relax a little bit as well.

Thanks! Look forward to any input.
