    I've been to Boston several times in the distant past and hated it. But, I did love Cape Cod, especially P-town. It was fun being the rare straight couple surrounded by gay folks. We had a blast, but that was many years ago. "We were so much younger then, so much younger than today".

    Faneuil Hall is a best place for food lovers, although it is a busy area but food taste is very fine. I am in love with it's food.

    You know, it was okay. I can see where if you lived in Massachusetts you would be pretty starved for good food, and it was good food.

    If you like the beach then Cape Cod is a delight and there is a long bike trail, I expect you can rent bikes to enjoy it, you can ride to beaches and views. With the first gay-friendly city, Provincetown (P-Town) at the end. You can take a ferry there from Boston.

    On the North Shore near Gloucester (pronounced “glaw-stuh”) there is great off-the-boat seafood and the delightfully shallow Wingaersheek Beach which is great for frisbee at low tide due to the acres of flat sand. There used to be a clothing-optional beach (Singing Beach? The sands sing while you walk) also on the North Shore. North shore is anything north of Boston, but these two are both on Cape Ann, which is the next major land-knob north of Boston
    Hey neighbor, I grew up in Wayland.

    Now I'm around the Foxboro vicinity.

    Hey neighbor! Went to Foxboro to see The Who in concert some years back...
    Now I’m about 7 hours west of there.

    I wished I'd seen this thread sooner. You can go on a whale sightseeing tour from Boston Harbor. It is well worth the trip.

    Well, I've been home for a few weeks . But thank you for the idea, will think about it if I'm on that coast again. We've been excited around here lately about a Humpback whale that keeps turning up in our bay and flopping about, presumably for the Instagram likes.
