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.
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.
The Freedom Trail, Fenway Park, Harvard University, Boston Common, Quincy Market, and the Museum of Fine Arts are among the top attractions that draw visitors to Boston.
The ideal duration to explore the city and visit key attractions in Boston is typically 2-4 days, but the exact timeframe may vary depending on your specific interests and preferences.
Boston offers numerous day trip options for visitors, such as exploring Cape Cod, immersing in the history of Salem's witch trials, discovering Plymouth, where the Pilgrims settled, or embarking on a scenic ferry ride to the picturesque islands of Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket.
Like any big city, Boston suffers from a range of petty crime. But don’t fret. You can stay safe if you follow some 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.
