2 adults, 2 boys age 8 & 11
We are trying to plan a road trip during the first 2 weeks of August. We are tentatively planning 8 or 9 days, depending.
Our boys are getting very interested in American History, so we are trying to focus on that this trip. We have no burning desire to visit big museums (Science, Childrens, etc) as we frequent the ones at home and I have been told no Fenway.
So far, we want to do the Freedom Trail, Paul Revere's house, Whale Watching Tour, and Faneuil Hall. We have 3 full days planned for Boston.
We would very much like to hit up Salem/Marblehead and Lexington/Concord. Would it make more sense for us to come directly in to Salem and stay there first before coming into Boston and stashing the car? Or should we try to book a condo or something and just day trip out?
Thanks for any/all advice!!
