Best Daytrips from Boston

New England contains an abundance of historic and recreational sites and is small enough that a day trip from Boston is sufficient to visit most of them. For weekend getaways, favorite standbys include the Berkshires, Cape Cod, and Martha’s Vineyard. Amtrak, the commuter rail, buses, and ferries make most destinations accessible without a car.

The Hawaii Island Pride Group, a local organization focused on organizing and promoting lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender pride events on the Big Island, kicked off the third weekend of June with the Miss Hawaii Island Pride Pageant at the local My Bar.
