Travel Ideas: Fall Colors

Here is a suggested 3 day itinerary and travel ideas for trip to Boston.

Day 1:

One day one of your trip to Boston, visit Freedom Trail. If you are looking for things to do with kids then visiting different stops on Freedom Trail is perfect for them to learn American history. There are guided tours available for Freedom Trail that will take you through a brief visit to each of the monument and you can also find free trail maps in your hotel lobbies for a self guided self paced tour. You can also decide to spend more time at places like Boston Tea Party Ship and Museum or Old North Church to know in more detail.

Boston Harbor Walk is connecting different neighborhoods across Boston Harbor. There was a big cleaning and re-invigorating effort for Boston Harbor in 60's giving Boston Harbor Walk it current form. From north to south and east to west there are so many exciting places to explore with different character and tempo. You can walk,bike,job, cruise or just explore waterfront along the Harbor walk. It is a fun experience.

Looking for some Boston style night life or things to do at night? Check out Wally's Jazz Cafe in Boston's Back Bay area. It is oldest family owned and operated Jazz Club. Live Jazz performances by well known artists as well as students start at 9:00 PM every day. And it is not very pricey either.

"Good Life" is another very interesting Lounge in Boston Downtown. Very sleek and European style. It is fun hangout place for young and sophisticates.
28 Kingston St, Downtown Crossing, Boston, MA 02111

Day 2:

Take a short drive out to Cambridge and visit MIT University. They have to offer some outstanding research facilities and museums and they are open to visitors. There are guided and self guided tours available of the campus as well. And do not forget the beautiful view of Boston downtown from MIT campus.

Weather you are Rex Sox fan or not or weather you are interested in Baseball or not, do visit America's oldest and in use Major League Baseball Park Fenway Park. It is a unique Baseball park and a very cosy family friend experience.

Day 3:

Boston Harbor Island Recreational Area is collection of 34 islands. Take a quick ferry to any one or more of these islands from Boston and spend a day picnicking, hiking lush trails, exploring rich history and wildlife. This area kind of reminds me of Golden Gate National Park in San Francisco.

Visit Faneuilhall Market Place also known as Quincy Market for true Boston style Shopping and Dinning experience. Always there are very interesting and fun event going on in this market place. Paved streets and street performers give it a very unique feel. It is really fun for whole family.
