I am renting a DSLR camera for five days. If you were doing this, what would you shoot?

I will have the camera for five days along with a 50mm lens and an intervalometer. Unfortunately, I won't have access to other lenses. I am located in Boston but can travel to Rhode Island, southern New Hampshire, and Cape Cod. I have limited ability to bother my family members, but the rental will include a weekend.
I am not a brand-new photographer. I am not concerned about issues like learning my way around the menus, nor with pixel-peeping or staging comparisons to equipment I already own. I'm looking at this as a "photographic vacation." Imagine you're a millionaire shopping for a summer home, so you rent a cottage somewhere to try out the area. What sort of things would you do, to get a feel for the area? That's how I'm thinking about this.
Thanks in advance for your ideas!
