Ok I'm tired of looking at VRBO's and having no luck so ...

I'm about to book the Hotel Buckminster. It will accomodate all of us comfortably. Any feedback before I do it?

Thanks,

Becca

My boys don't really even like the beach. Was just going to say we had been to Cape Cod. They are more into the history that they would find at Salem and Plymouth. Any way to get to Plymouth from Boston without renting a car?

Salem is an easy day trip by train or, in the summer through fall, by ferry (or train one direction, ferry the other). The Peabody Essex Museum and Salem Maritime Historic Site will offer lots of history for your sons. Here are links to some websites that may be helpful for planning:

Salem by train is a great day trip. Plimouth Plantation is difficult without a car. You could take the train to Concord and walk about 15 minutes to Concord Center with several historical houses, the Concord Museum and the famous Old North Bridge (a bit further of a walk away). Also, in summer a trolley runs between Lexington and Concord so you could visit the Revolutionary War sites there too.
