Road trip to include Boston and Concord: where to stay?

Jump to last reply

My nieces and I are going to Prince Edward Island for a week in early July, and we'll be meeting up in the Boston area to start our pre-PEI "road" week--probably be in Boston area June 28-30 (Saturday through Monday.)

We want to visit Orchard House (this is a very "classic chick lit" oriented trip!) as well as the rest of historic Concord and want to have a day or two in Boston, as well, but don't want to drive into Boston if we can avoid it.

From what I understand, we can get a commuter rail train into Boston if we stay in Concord, or we could stay in a town closer to Boston and get the subway in and out, then drive to Concord.

Any recommendations/suggestions/"never thought of that" ideas? This will actually be my first time in the area, and I know Boston deserves much more than one day, but we do want to make a few more stopovers on our way to PEI.

Any recommendations for places to stay; there will be four of us and we prefer a moderate budget (maybe ca. $150 a night?) but I do realize that the area and season are high.
