Things to Know about Visiting BOSTON | Boston Travel Guide


Boston is home to amazing history, beautiful parks, delicious food, awesome sports, and many other cool attractions. Boston is the largest city in not only the state of Massachusetts but also all of New England. The city has endless opportunities for everyone to enjoy. This Boston travel guide will dig deep into the things to know about visiting Boston.

Getting to Boston – The most common way to get into Boston is through Boston Logan Airport, the main airport in Boston. Other options include by train (Amtrak, MBTA commuter rails, etc.) and by car (I-95, I-93, I-90).

Getting Around Boston – Boston has excellent public transportation with the MBTA including the subways, buses, and ferries. You may use either a CharlieCard or a CharlieTicket to pay for fares. In addition, you can also get around the city by bike or by walking. Boston is a very walkable city, and it is highly advised NOT to drive around the city.

Freedom Trail – The Freedom Trail is a 2.5 mile history walk going by many historical sites starting from Boston Common and ending over at Bunker Hill Monument. Follow the red bricks as it takes you by many historic sites including Faneuil Hall, Paul Revere’s House, and the USS Constitution.

Neighborhoods & Attractions – Each neighborhood in Boston offers unique attractions and restaurants. I check out the different neighborhoods from Downtown, Beacon Hill, the Seaport, and North End to Back Bay and Fenway/Kenmore and talk about the cool things you can do there.

Parks – Boston is home to beautiful, historic parks including (but not limited to) Boston Common and the Boston Public Garden.

Hotels – Hotels may be found all over the city of Boston including over in Cambridge near Harvard and MIT where you may find some lower-cost options.

Food – Boston is a foodie city, and you will find some amazing restaurants serving great food from seafood and pub fare to Italian food and budget-friendly options.

Sports – Boston has plenty of sports teams from the Boston Red Sox (baseball) to the Boston Celtics (basketball) and the Boston Bruins (hockey). Make sure to catch a game either at Fenway Park or at TD Garden! For football, the New England Patriots play away from the city down in Foxborough.

Safety – Boston is one of the safest large cities in the United States. I have been to Boston several times, and I have not run into any problems. It is advised to be extra careful in southern neighborhoods such as Roxbury, Dorchester, and Mattapan especially at night.

Getting Out of Boston – Boston is a gateway to the rest of New England as you can head out to visit other cool areas of Boston from Gloucester and Salem to Cape Cod. The freeways leading out of the city can also take you to the neighboring states of New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, and Maine.
