Given how intense life can often be in our humble metropolis, every Bostonian gets a little stir crazy now and then, especially during these times of social distancing and working from home. Fortunately, all one has to do is hit the road — or hop on a train, bus or ferry — to explore the many wonders of New England. The Hub’s main arteries (I-90, I-93 and I-95) give direct, easy access to Maine, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island, western Mass, and even Vermont; this means locals have lots of enticing day trips to choose from at any time of the year. Once you’ve returned to the city, keep the fun going by checking out the best Boston attractions, best free things to do in Boston, and best museums in Boston.
