Boston is East Coast America at its
best, and spending a few days there is strongly recommended.
It's a place that isn't content to rest on its laurels
- the history is visible, but there's a great deal of
modern life and energy besides, thanks in part to the
presence of Cambridge , the home of Harvard University,
just across the river. Several further historic towns
are within easy reach - Salem to the north, Concord and
Lexington just inland, and Plymouth to the south. Provincetown
, a three-hour ferry ride across the bay at the tip of
Cape Cod, is great fun to visit, and the rest of the
Cape offers historic towns, lovely beaches - and huge
crowds. Except for a handful of college towns such as
Amherst, inland Massachusetts is much quieter; its settlements
are naturally concentrated where the land is fertile,
such as along the Connecticut River valley and in the
Berkshires to the west.
