So, my parents have decided they want to take a trip to Boston in August. They've given me the task of finding things we can do in Boston, and between Pennsylvania and Boston.


So I'm coming here to ask for some suggestions. I'll be doing my own research as well, but I figured some of you probably live somewhere between Pennsylvania and Massachusetts and could suggest some ideas to me.


Anyone else that's has any relevant suggestions are welcome to reply as well.


Thanks.


Oh, and don't suggest going to see the Sam Adams brewery. That's already happening for sure.

When in August? I'm a Berklee student and always do a summer semester, if you hit me up I'll give you a hug.

Then I get to be a mod, right?

You forgot the New England Aquarium. Kind of expensive but totally worth it.

Also, if you have an entire day to kill, you can take the Amtrak to Old Orchard Beach in Maine. It's got a small but decent amusement park, huge beach, small boardwalk, a decent arcade, and lots of french people (and poutine).

In Mass I would def hit up Fenway and Yawkee way. Its all pretty cool. You can see if there is any good shows playing at the House of Blues or the Paradise Rock Club. Quincys Market is pretty sweet.

PA has Hershey Park

Also, if your into the history stuff and all, boston and PA are both really great places to see stuff like that.

You could also go to Salem and see all the witch stuff. Thats all pretty neat.

Everyone seems to be forgetting the Boston Museum of Science. That place is the shit. I haven't been there since I was like 8, but they've always got cool exhibits. Also you could look for shows at the Brighton Music Hall, its a newly renovated club dedicated to smaller-time acts.

watch man vs. food and eat at all those places i wish i could!
