Our tips for Boston

Pack season-appropriate footwear: Downtown Boston is a walkable destination so be prepared to walk a lot. Since subway stations near the city center are just a couple of blocks apart, it is often easier to walk rather than take the train. Freedom Trail: And when in the city, make sure that you walk the Freedom Trail (2.5 miles), the path that connects the city’s biggest historic attractions. If you plan to use the subway a lot, get the seven-day unlimited pass or pick up a reloadable plastic CharlieCard. The seven-day pass includes rides on the Charlestown ferry while the CharlieCard offers a heavy discount on regular subway fares and includes free bus rides.

Good to know

Best time to visit
Boston can be visited the entire year. But best weather and fewer crowds can be experienced in the spring (May to June) or fall (September to October). If you’re on a budget, consider visiting in July and August as prices are comparatively lower, likely due to hot weather.
Getting around
There are options galore when it comes to exploring Boston. The public transport system is quite efficient and well connected. You can travel by buses, taxis and share rides. Being a walkable city, there are expansive green spaces and pretty residential neighborhoods that can be explored on foot. Most of the neighborhoods and downtown Boston are accessible by trains, buses, trolleys, and water transportation.
Stay Safe
Like any big city, Boston suffers from a range of petty crime. But, don’t fret. You can stay safe if you follow these safety tips:
  • Although South Boston is generally safe these days, heading further south into Roxbury or Dorchester is asking for trouble. Avoid these neighborhoods whenever possible.
  • Common crimes near tourist areas are pickpocketing, various scams, and petty theft. Try distributing your valuables equally between your front pocket, inside vest pocket, and money wallet.
  • Plot out your travel directions for a Boston day trip before you hit the streets. Try to have your “T” ticket/passes in hand and do your best to appear aware and confident to avoid attracting any unwanted attention.
Money saving tips
Planning and booking well in advance can help you save a ton of dough since you need not pay the last-minute inflated rates. You could also book saver combos that include more than 2 Boston attractions with transportation and enjoy discounted rates. Be a deal hunter and research online for the best deals. Booking your Boston tickets and tours online will always be cheaper than booking directly at the ticket booth. Consider buying discount coupons, half-off tickets, and tons of free activities that can keep your vacation budget friendly. Parking in the city can cost you a lot of money. Travel extensively by the subway (called the ‘T’) and walk around the city as walking tours make for a wonderful sightseeing experience.
Did you know?
Quirky fact about Boston to whet your travel appetite: Boston is named after a town in England: It’s a tad ironic that a city that stands as the symbol of the American spirit has been named after a town in England. The early settlers in the city were from Boston, England and decided to keep the name. The oldest park in the United States: Boston Common, a scenic stretch of green sanctuary dates back to 1634 and is the oldest public park in the country. Happy hours are illegal: You will not find any happy hour promotions in Boston pubs as the post-work drink deals have been banned in Boston since 1984.
