If you want to immerse yourself in the history of the East Coast, look for flights to Andover, Massachusetts. This town dates back to the 1600s and abounds with interesting historical sites, such as the Parson Barnard House and Johnson Cottage. The easiest way to get to Andover is to fly into Boston Logan International Airport (BOS).
Transportation from BOS
Once you've arrived on one of the Andover flights at Boston Logan International Airport, you can take a train with the Massachusetts Bay Transport Authority (MBTA). Catch an airport shuttle to the Airport station, and then take the Blue Line subway, changing over to the Orange Line at State Street. Proceed to Malden Center, where you get on a commuter rail train to Andover. The entire journey takes around 90 minutes. Alternatively, rent a car at BOS; most of the major car rental companies operate from the airport. A number of shared van, taxi, and limousine services also take passengers from the airport to Andover, and the journey takes around 30 minutes. Book into one of the hotels in Andover and begin your journey into the past. Visit the Hayscales Building, where hay was weighed for local farmers during the mid-1800s, and Stevens-Coolidge Place, which gives a fascinating insight into the early 20th century lives of the wealthy. Andover offers much if you're keen on the outdoors: Jog or walk the trails at Hagget's Pond and Pole Hill. Camp out in the Harold Parker State Forest. Or, hike, picnic, canoe, and cycle in this 3,000-acre nature reserve.
