If a little sightseeing is what you're looking for on your Boston vacations, you'll find plenty of sights to see in old Beantown, where you can get a taste of freedom with an official or self-guided tour of the Freedom Trail landmarks. Go island hopping around the Boston Harbor Islands for stunning views of Boston's skyline and the Atlantic Ocean. If you lean towards the nautical, you can spend an afternoon at New England Aquarium learning about what lurks beneath the surface of the Atlantic and end the day with a sunset sail around the historic harbor on a traditional tall ship. Into sports? Catch a Boston Red Sox game -- and maybe a fly ball -- at Fenway Park. Or if you're looking for a vacation within your vacation, check out car rentals in Boston for drives to Cape Cod or Martha's Vineyard.
