We went out on Saturday night and saw a good handful each and were looking at different parts of the sky. The meteor shower will be visible through the 22nd, but is tapering out (but there should still be as many as 40 an hour for the next few nights). You certainly don't need a telescope, it would actually make it more difficult because the meteors are all over the parts of the sky and are harder to catch when looking at a small area.
My recommendations? Grab a blanket, lay on the ground after about 11 pm and look up at the sky, you should see some within a few minutes of looking. (Note that if you are in an area where there is high light pollution, you might have to head to where you can see stars).
I unfortunately don't have a nice enough camera (or the patience) to catch the light show in the sky and a special thanks to Michelle from Life With Dylan for sharing this great photo from the blue moon last week!
