Boston hands down for sure.  Our DS moved there 18 years ago right out of college & just loves it as does his dear wife.  DH & I have been there 15 times in May/June for 3 weeks & the last two years in late  August/Sept for three weeks.  So much to see & do & wonderful beaches.  Freedom Trail, museums, aquarium that is awesome.  Trolley tours, historical tours, Boston Harbor cruise.  Ride the Ducks.  Just enjoy yourself & do as much as you can in three days.  Great seafood & so much fun to go downtown to eat at Quincy Market.

Boston, hands down. I don't find anything appealing about Florida.

Looks like my birthplace wins!  Ha!

 

I haven't been there in years and would like to go to visit lots of cousins who come down here all the time.

 

Quick--go before the snow starts.  I just read the last of it melted yesterday!  Yikes.

I love FL any time but I'd choose Boston and hit FL in the winter, preferably Miami or the Keys.

Boston for sure. Take a little drive up north and catch the beautiful autumn colors.

I have visisted Florida every year but never in September.  Sorry, I can't be of any help but at least you are getting away.  Man Very Happy

One point someone here from Boston could respond for you is the fact that people that live their do not go in the water even when they live on it except for a few weeks a year.

 

I have been told by my friends that their water does not warm up to 80 degrees like it does in the south.   They have told me the water is freezing most of the year.  Just hear say so it would be great to hear from people that live there.

 

 

Just a consideration if you like to paddle board, or do any water sports.
