When I visited Boston for the first time last weekend, I was pleasantly surprised in many ways. The architecture is fabulous. The food is excellent. And the people, the life of any city, are incredibly kind and welcoming.

Warm wishes in Boston

Coat weather seemed to sneak up on us in North Carolina, so I can only imagine how it feels in the rest of the country, but the falling temperatures don't have to restrict your vacation options.
