Boston and surrounding area trip

Thankfully, we are not planning on having a car while in Boston. Just for the road trip prior to our week at Custom House.

I am considering expanding our road trip a couple of days so we won’t be rushed. We will lose a day to travel the day we arrive. We will be using miles, and the Alaska flight would get in around 5:40 PM. I don’t want to set out in the dark on unknown roads during rush hour. Especially since I’m the navigator.

Thanks to all for your very helpful advice!
A couple of points, you are coming from the West coast, so 5:40 Eastern time is just 2:40 'body time'. And there is about a 99% chance that your rental car will have Apple Auto and/or Android Auto. The navigation will be handled by your smart phone and you'll see it on the car's big screen.

I strongly recommend a trip to Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard. MV is an easy day trip. One thing to note is that things start to shut down the week after Columbus Day in parts of the Cape and MV. You may also enjoy things south at Duxbury or north at Marblehead .
