Looking to extend your trip beyond the city of Boston? We would highly recommend visiting...
Cambridge, Massachusetts (10 Minutes from Boston)
As Boston residents, we cross the Charles at least once a week to visit Cambridge and it's amazing selection of restaurants! If you visit Cambridge, we recommend taking a walk through Harvard Square and stopping by the Harvard Book Store.
Concord, Massachusetts (40 Minutes from Boston)
We love spending time in Concord's picturesque town center, partially because Concord is Selin's hometown, but also because of its rich history! If you have the chance to visit, don't miss the Alcott House, the Old North Bridge, and Walden Pond.
Cape Cod, Massachusetts (1.5 Hours from Boston)
If you have more time to spend in New England, July is the perfect time to visit Cape Cod. You can take a day trip via the fast ferry from Boston to Provincetown, or rent a car to make the easy drive down the coast.
