Boston/Washington DC travel questions
Last edited 15/03/2019 - 10:38
Travelling with my parents in their 60s and my 5yo so the itinerary has to cater for both. We are arriving in Boston on July 01 and leaving washington DC on July 07. Here are my questions.
Should we plan 2 days in Boston, 4 days DC or 3 days in each city? In Boston we mainly want to visit Harvard Univerisity and MIT and maybe walk around the CBD (the free Trail), so I guess 1 full day is enough? Problem is I am still tossing whether I should fly or train to Boston from NYC (budget issue), so we may get to Boston quite late on the first day. We will fly from Boston to DC.
What is must see in DC? Have to be suitable for both elderly and 5yo too. Museums would be good, but my parents don't understand English much so I am afraid that they will get bored.
Since we are arriving just before 4th of July, are most of the major tourists places still accessible or they will be closed for celebrations or protests? Do they just happen on the day or will they last a couple of days?
Does DC have passes like NYC explorer pass that you can enter multiple attractions?
Thank you very much in advance!!
