Boston's East Coast location puts it close to many fun destinations for day trips and weekend getaways near the city, elsewhere in New England, New York and the Mid-Atlantic Coast, Eastern Canada, and even Europe.

From famous Pilgrim and Revolutionary War sites to Cape Cod beaches . . . from picturesque New England villages to popular ski resorts . . . from the bright lights of New York City to glittering Montreal . . . you'll find a huge variety of fascinating destinations just a short distance away.
And don't forget that a non-stop flight from Boston puts European cities such as Paris within easy reach for a long weekend. Of course a week or more is better . . . but that's up to you!
