    Just over two months to this rally.
    There are still electric sites available.
    There are beaches nearby, Boston, and the Cape.
    Lots of things to do here, especially if you've got kids...... [:D]

    Unfortunately, we won't be making it to this one - it's the only week we can all get time off to go to French Creek, which we promised our son we'd go to this year. Maybe we'll make the Fall Foliage rally.

    We still have to juggle some events for the 4th (morning), however we are going to try to go to the esplanade in the evening.

    We're looking for suggestions - we are thinking that it might be cool to see the Boston fireworks since we'll be there for the 4th. (We do recognize the charm of small-town 4th celebrations but that is all we have here in Vermont so we thought we might try something different.) We were thinking of going into Boston for the day, it would be just the two of us. Anyone have ideas or suggestions as to how to best accomplish this? Will there be a problem returning late to the CG?

    I would drive to Quincy Center T or Wollaston (Don't go to the first T station, they charge an exit fee) and park. Take the Red line to the Green line and head out that way. To get a place to sit at the Hatch Shell, that will be your day in Boston....you will need to get there early...

    my sleepy little town (Wilmington) has a fireworks night planned for the Saturday after the 4th. If there is enough interest we could take a trek there to watch them and head back. It is maybe a 45 minute drive from Hingham.

    Last year the display was 35-45 minutes long and was spectacular.

    Re: Boston (MA) Area, East Coast Rally

    Hope you're able to join us etool8762.

    For those wondering about getting in and out of the city (Boston), a public transportation pass is available for $18 per person, covers 7 days. There is a free parking area very close to the park and a quick bus ride (bus 220) that runs right to Quincy Center where you can use the pass to catch the T.


    Everyone upon arrival to this rally will be getting an area packet, to give you insight on local places of interest and information on transportation options. So if you're hesitant about attending because you're not sure you want to mess with the Boston traffic, rest easy we've got ways to keep costs down and make traveling around simple.

    Here is the link for the 4th of July Events for the town of Hingham, where Wompatuck State park is located.

    More coming on Boston, and other neighboring areas later this week.

    Thanks for the information, we are looking forward to attending! We will arrive on the 3rd and depart on the 7th so we are hoping to spend a little time exploring the area. The USS Constitution was closed the last time we were in Boston, so we missed seeing it.

    Well the Park did it again!!!!! They cancelled my reservation again!!!!!!! This time due to electrical issues with sites: M002, 004, 006, 025, 027, M008-020. [:(!]

    Going to have to talk with DH to see if we are going to rebook this reservation.

    Pixel - I think it is a sign that you're just supposed to be closer to the rest of us! [:)C]

    But honestly, what are the odds!

    Update to anyone else thinking of joining us that do want power - Book ASAP - as they just closed a row of powered sites due to power problems on one road. The sites that have been closed are not currently booked by any other attending PopUp Portal member. There are plenty of nice non electric sites available, including my favorite.
