June New England trip

Jump to last reply

My hubby, 2 children (16 & 6) & I are headed to this area in June for a much-anticipated vacation. We'll be staying at a resort in Lee, but want to see as much as possible in our 7 day stay.

Will fly into DC, rent a car & drive up to MA from there. We'll then drive back to fly out a day early so we can hit a few key spots in DC. Any "must-see" spots? What about places within driving distance from the Berkshires, which will be our base for most of the time? We're Southerners, where we have to drive to get anywhere, so a 2-3 hour drive is not an issue at all. I know we want to visit Boston & other cities, mountainouns/hills, somewhere coastal, a few museums.... looking for informative & fun ideas to entertain the kiddos & us parents without breaking the bank. We enjoy the outside - probably more viewing (Oooohing & Ahhhhing) than strenuous activities..... & new experiences, I suppose, that will entertain us all to a certain extent.

Our teenager will also be having her16th birthday while on this trip, so trying to find something fun/special for us to do one day. Maybe a spa?

Help & thanks for looking?!
