Five days in Boston- first timers

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have booked a flight to Boston for five days/four nights in late September - early October. We were given a two-for-one flight voucher, so kind of booked this on a whim for my upcoming birthday. Now we're trying to figure out where to stay, what to do. We're in our late 50s early60s ... enjoy history, walking tours, good food. Will probably skip art museums on this trip.

I'm kind of surprised at the high cost of hotel rooms in the city (we just returned from a few days at a very nice hotel in San Francisco ... for a much lower rate than I am seeing in Boston). We'd like to stay in the city center to take in the historical sights, but are hoping to keep our hotel expenses under $250/nt.

A friend told me earlier today that we should split our time between Boston and Cape Cod - does that seem realistic with five days? Is it feasible to see Boston in two days, rent a car and go to Cape Cod for two days? Not sure if that would be rushing things, and we certainly don't want to drive in the city.

Open to any and all suggestions! Walking tours, restaurants, hotels, etc. Thank you.
