    I didn't realise that I would have sooooo much fun with this tour! Its not only for the kids. As a matter of fact there were more adults during the tour :) I had wanted so much to volunteer to drive the "amphibian" but to shy to volunteer. The driver who guided us even sounded like a duck "quack"

    Very well curated exhibit. Interactive. Experience a Wampanoag homesite. Learn about the Mayflower. See how the Pilgrims lived in the 17th century. Engage with craftsmen who practice age old techniques of carving, knitting, etc. If you are on the Cape for a holiday this is a good cloudy day trip with the kids.

    North End

    35 reviews

    This is a slice of Italy, right in Boston! Great cafes and restaurants. Hannover Street is the main tourist draw, but you will find better, less expensive and more authentic food on one of the many side streets. After dinner, don't forget your pastries from Mike's (if you're willing to wait in line) or Modern.
