There is so much to do in Boston Proper during the summer months, Duck Tours, New England Aquarium, Harbor Tours, Trolley Tours and more. The best thing to me is that within a 1 1/2 hour drive, you can be on the beach on Cape Cod.
If you are new to Beantown, Cape Cod is a penninsula located approximately 90 miles south of Boston. As native Bostonian, one of my earliest memories is playing paper dolls in the dunes on “Old Cape Cod.”
The scene is completely different. Rustic patches of sand and scruff pines, sprawling beaches, lobster shacks, fishing, kayaking, boating, golf, and Summer Baseball.
