Boston City Guide
Fenway Park

If there is one city in the world that I have spent more time in than New York City, it would definitely be Boston, Massachusetts. I have had so many friends move there over the years that I have become a pro at the NYC to Boston travel route. While I know Cambridge and some of the outer cities aren’t technically part of Boston I’m considering anything on the T line fair game with this city guide. Fall is definitely the best time of year to visit, the winters can be brutal! The first time I visited it was so cold out the parking meters had stopped working! So make sure to bring your preppiest New England clothing, your Patagonia jacket and explore Boston.

GETTING AROUND

Boston is very easy to get around. If you have a car it’s a little more difficult to park but it is doable. Just allow extra time to find parking. Otherwise you can get most anywhere you need to go on the T or bus system. And if you need a late night ride or don’t want to take the train Uber is also widely used in Boston.
