We are very soon leaving for a family holiday, with a little trepidation I must admit as it’s the first looooong flight we have subjected Bea to since she was mobile. We are doing a road trip I’ve long wanted to check off the bucket list – New England in the fall. Our route takes us to Boston, then Cape Cod, back inland to do some real ‘leaf peeping’ and finally 5 days in New York for a bit of fun before flying home. I absolutely can’t wait.
We have both been to New York before so have places we want to revisit and new sights to see, but I’d love to hear any tips you have on Boston particularly or Cape Cod if you have been.
We plan to do the Freedom trail in Boston but are pretty open other than that as I don’t know much about the city. In Cape Cod we will mostly be enjoying playing on the beaches, cycle rides and some mooching around the towns but if there’s anything you recommend please let me know. I know there is a Dr Seuss museum and and Eric Carle (of The Very Hungry Caterpiller) museum on our route as both Authors originate from Massachusetts.
Thanks in advance for your tips! (Bonus points if you know of any quick pit stop places where we can let Bea loose to play for a break during all the sight seeing!)
