From roadtrip to boattrip

Thanks to labor day, our second week in New Paltz started with a road-trip to Boston and Cape Cod. Renting a car in New Paltz is easy and fairly cheap. But finding a cheap hostel in Boston at labor day weekend was far more complicated and as we experienced: Impossible.

Luckily, we found a boat on http://www.airbnb.com that fit our limited budget. The boat was located in Boston Bay Marina. With the water taxi you get to the center in 15 minutes. The view is simply amazing and you can see the skyline of Boston from the water and take unique pictures. And the best about it was that it is free.

In Boston, we visited the main attractions, such as the USS Constitution, Harvard University and of course the food courts. On Sunday, we went to Cape Cod, which is only 2 hours away from Boston. Here, you can hang out at the beach, enjoy the little stores and cafes or – as we did – go whale watching.  It was a great weekend and I’m already looking forward to the next trip.
