"Though its sweeping beaches and weather-beaten, shingled facades recall Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket has a blustery island spirit all its own. Its colonial heritage is still far more evident than on the mainland, just 30 miles away. Over the past decade the island has become a favored destination for sea and scene-loving urbanites, who travel to Nantucket for the promise of swanky retailers and restaurateurs. But outside of "town" (such as it is), the island's windblown, starkly beautiful dunes and moors feel almost as remote as they must have a century or four ago."

"This triangle-shaped island — sitting about 8 miles off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts — has been a secret summer hideaway of the rich and famous for more than a century. Today, the "Hollywood East" reputation is going strong — thanks to frequent visitors like President Barack Obama, David Letterman and Bill Murray, among many others. But despite the all-star summer lineup, a laid-back lifestyle rules the island. The main draw rushing Vineyard visitors off the ferry is the chance to let their hair down for a long weekend. Sure, you'll find insanely expensive summer cottages, and a pricey dining atmosphere to match, in some corners of the town of Chilmark. But low-key towns like Vineyard Haven and Menemsha are still predominantly focused on their marine industries and offer a more casual experience. Even the island's must-have souvenir — a Black Dog sweatshirt — is informal. So swap the stilettos for your scrappiest flat sandals, and do play it cool when you spy some film stars in Edgartown; everyone deserves a slice of a Vineyard vacation."

"Bursting with Yankee pride, Boston attracts visitors for its rich past and vibrant present. From Boston Common to Faneuil Hall to Fenway Park, the city is a hub of American history and culture. Buzzing neighborhoods such as the North End, Beacon Hill, and Back Bay mix venerable landmarks and lively street life. On the other side of the Charles River is bustling Cambridge, home of Harvard University and MIT. Wherever you choose to explore, Boston’s locavore restaurants, chic galleries, and tempting shops are all easily accessible on satisfying strolls."

John F Kennedy Presidential Library
"Visit us in our striking I.M Pei building on Boston’s waterfront. Located on Columbia Point, the Library and Museum is set on a ten acre park landscaped with pine trees, shrubs and wild roses reminiscent of the landscape of Cape Cod familiar to President Kennedy. Experience our Museum through our three theaters, period settings, and 25 dramatic multimedia exhibits, and enter the recreated world of the Kennedy Presidency for a “first-hand” experience of John F. Kennedy’s life, legacy, and leadership."
