    I have a few days before I head down to Boston. Any ideas for some good locations to shoot? I plan to visit Cape Cod and Plymoth Rock but what else. There is not many if any aviation museums in the area so I will be looking for lots of scenery. We plan to head in-land after a few days to Amhurst to visit family then on to Rhinebeck, NY for an airshow next weekend.

    I visited my brother up in Boston for his graduation... it's an AWESOME city!!!
    I really loved visiting there, especially deep in the city and the coast. We stayed at the naval base and rented a house that was right near the water... we had no idea it would be that nice either!
    Have a good time! :thumbup:

    Just added a tour of Fenway park to my list of must dos. Don't think I can afford two play-off ticekts though.

    We were in Boston last year and it sure is a great place!

    - The Boston Harbor and Long Wharf - for views of the Boston skyline
    - Harvard Square
    - Faneuil Hall marketplace
    - Boston Common

    I'm sure our members from Boston will give you better leads than the typical touristy ones. :)

    Don't forget to take the subways.

    Here is a link that I just found at pnet.

    I know I'm weird, but I've always thought the Boston Library was really cool :thumbsup: I was going to suggest a game at Fenway but with the playoffs...uh, no. A tour will be cool though! Faneuil Hall is great and that would be a must see on my list. The Museaum of Science is also a great stop. Enjoy your visit and I'll look forward to seeing the pictures!

    The only time I was in Boston was for my college Clarinet audition, and the 23" blizzard blew through while I was in the audition room... We were stuck there for a 4 days at the airport Holliday Inn. Great city, have fun ;)

    I made a valiant effort to get there and spent 3 hours on the interstate that was washed out. They have a rare Burnelli Flying Wing from the 40s that was built in Canada I desperately wanted to get some photos of.

    Along the MA/NH/RI coast there are a bunch of abandoned military installations and the like. Some of them are really cool, Portsmouth NH has a few that quite beautiful. They make for great subject matter because they are usually very close to highly developed areas with very expensive realestate. The best one in NH fort stark is a state park and right next to million dollar homes.

    Nice, I spend my summers on the cape and have several good night shots of Plymouth Rock. If you get the chance, there's tons of good spots down the south shore of RI. Nice beaches and lighthouses and such...
