Massachusetts may be a tiny commonwealth, but it packs a big punch. The Bay State is a surprisingly diverse panorama of premier colleges, American history, and world-class museums—and Cambridge is its perfect microcosm. Get in the true “Spirit of America” with a Cambridge car rental to take you to iconic New England shores and legendary landmarks.
When your flight to Cambridge lands at Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), you’re only 6 miles west of your destination city. Just pick up your rental car in Cambridge and choose your next adventure. For a taste of Old New England charm, get your fill of clam chowder 60 miles north in Portsmouth, NH. Browse the shops of Market Square for that perfect coastal souvenir—in New Hampshire, it’s tax-free. Put those extra dollars back into the economy with a picturesque waterfront dinner.
For family-friendly fun, head 40 miles south to Plymouth, MA, home of the pilgrims and tons of colonial attractions. Toss a penny and make a wish at Plymouth Rock, board the famous Mayflower replica, and travel back in time at Plimoth Plantation. Pick up some local, organic cranberry juice (or cranberry wine for the adults!) and homemade ice cream as you stroll along the historic waterfront. When you’ve had your fill of history, enjoy a whale-watching cruise, or hit the beach at Ellisville Harbor State Park.
You’ll get wicked good deals when you search Travelocity’s selection of cheap car rentals in Cambridge. Bundle and save when you book your airfare and Cambridge hotel together, and you’ll have even more Benjamins than a meeting of the Founding Fathers. Spend them on some Boston lager at the packie and brush up on your sports trivia, and you just may be able to pass for a local.
