Boston is one of the most important cities in the history of the USA and also the state capital of Massachusetts. Next to its historic significance, the city boasts a number of tourist attractions.
Careful: Flights to Boston are usually very cheap from Europe (starting at €200 without checked baggage), but the hotel prices are among the most expensive in the USA!
The Best Time to Visit
The best time to travel to Boston is from late summer to autumn. While the beginning of the summer can still be rainy and cool, the weather from August to October is most suitable for touristic purposes – temperatures are mild and precipitation is comparatively low.
From the Airport to the City Center
A free shuttle bus takes you from the terminals to the Airport Station of the MBTA Blue Line, from there you can take the Blue Line to the city centre (approx. 7-10 minutes). Tickets cost $2.50. A taxi to the city centre costs between $20 and $30, depending on the traffic and the exact destination. Uber and Lyft are slightly cheaper.
