We're Number One! Wait, What?

I was a little surprised to see Boston listed as America's top summer vacation spot. Here's the reasoning behind the ranking:
Boston appeals to travelers of all types come summertime, with average temperatures in the 60s and 70s. Fenway Park welcomes baseball lovers, the Freedom Trail invites history buffs to a scavenger hunt of historic sites and Little Italy and Faneuil Hall Marketplace beckon to foodies. Visitors can also check out numerous breweries or plan their vacation around one of several festivals held over the summer.
I love Boston and I think everyone should visit at least once, but I wouldn't say it's the first city that comes to mind when planning a summer vacation. I'd also like to call shenanigans on the average temperature listed here. July and August are hot and humid as hell. Cape Cod and the islands are probably a better summer vacation destination with cooler weather than the city and beautiful beaches. I would suggest flying into Boston, spend a day or two in the city and then rent a car and drive down to the Cape. Now that's a good summer vacation.

Some news

I haven't been very good at updating this blog but I have a good reason. I've been promoted at work. I'm now a paralegal and the office manager. I've been trying to catch up before my replacement starts and her first day is Monday. I'll be heading into the office tomorrow to work on the massive amount of filing that's been piling up and finish moving 11 years worth of stuff to my new desk. I've thrown out quit a bit but there's still a lot to go through. I should have the office to myself so I plan on putting on some music and plowing through it. I'm actually looking forward to it.
