Boston

Rich in museums, restaurants, shops, and historical sites, Boston attracts over 16 million visitors each year. New England's largest and most influential city, Boston ranks among the world's major centers of education and culture.
Kick off your visit on the 1st (Thu): wander the streets of North End. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 2nd (Fri): admire the masterpieces at Museum of Fine Arts, then stroll around Boston Common, and then get to know the fascinating history of Freedom Trail.

Plan my Boston trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Miami to Boston is an approximately 5.5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or drive. In October, Boston is cooler than Miami - with highs of 64°F and lows of 50°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Sat) to allow time to drive to Ogunquit.

Ogunquit means "beautiful place by the sea" in the language of the Native Americans who inhabited the region long ago, and this remains an accurate description of this holiday destination today.
Kick off your visit on the 4th (Sun): enjoy the sea views from Nubble Lighthouse, take in the dramatic natural features at Perkins Cove, and then appreciate the extensive heritage of Marginal Way Walkway.

You can drive from Boston to Ogunquit in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a train; or take a bus. Traveling from Boston in October, plan for little chillier nights in Ogunquit, with lows around 38°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Sun) early enough to drive to Newport.

With coastline on the west, south, and east, Newport is a maritime city with a rich history.
Kick off your visit on the 5th (Mon): hike along Cliff Walk and then examine the collection at The Breakers.

Plan my trip to Newport with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Getting from Ogunquit to Newport by car takes about 3 hours. Other options: take a bus; or take a train. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Ogunquit in October since evenings lows in Newport dip to 50°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
