Hi all,

Going to New York on the 17th July....heading straight up to Boston for social purposes, but I am staying in the vicinity of Boston and New York for approx 12 days. I intend to stay 5 full days in New York and about 3/4 in Boston. Any tips for the other three nights???? The two of us are fairly out-going and would be up for anything that sounds a bit of fun. Would like suggestions of resorts, towns, things to do, possible websites etc.

Thanks in advance

Ciaran

alright mate here goes...

Boston is great for nightlife :) enjoy - if u want more advic eon what to do in the city IM me. But to answer ur Question

Any tips for the other three nights????

Providence is great for nightlfe - i really enjoy this city, having grown up just outside the city (in Mass) I have seen and done it all in Providence. Def good for a few nights - its much more "gotham" than Boston - less tourist friendly and a bit dodgy but it has a cool edge too it. Go furthr into RI and visit Newport - great resort/seaside town with livly nightlife but VERY touristic in the summer.

If you need more info let me know!

Hi!

Yeah "The Cape" is alright!! - im just not a beach person but its great for seafood :) YUMYUM!

Providence is the capitol of RI. Great city and always overlooked as it sits between NYC and Boston
