Boston

Boston on America's eastern seaboard has lots on offer for a great getaway - it's famous for its history, Ivy League universities, top-notch museums and first class seafood. Highlights for Joe and Aoibhinn include following the Freedom Trail through the city to take in the key sights, visiting a museum dedicated to an iconic Irish-American - John F Kennedy, boarding the Boston Tea Party Ship and an excursion to Boston's weekend playground, Cape Cod.

Aoibhinn also takes a short getaway to the Glens of Antrim where she visits Glenariff Forest Park, Carnfunnock Country Park and the National Trust village of Cushendun.

Getaways is a co-production with BBC Northern Ireland and RTÉ One.
