As the capital of Massachusetts and the largest city in the northeastern United States, Boston is easy to get to by car and plane. However, Boston isn’t exactly the most driver-friendly city in the world, so you should instead rely on the city’s excellent public transportation system. Boston Logan International Airport is across the water from downtown in the East Boston neighborhood, and receives flights from many major airlines. From there, you’ll want to take a cab or the subway on the Silver Line, and then take the Red Line which will drop you off at Harvard Square, and then you’ll take a short walk down JFK Street over the Charles River to the main entrance.
Boston is teeming with hotel options, especially near historic landmarks and its profusion of universities. Boston is also freakishly expensive for both locals and travelers alike. The budget-conscious will want to stay in a hostel or book an AirBnb.
You should take full advantage of exploring one of the most exciting cities in the country. Boston is chock-full of American history, exquisite seafood, prominent museums and unique Northeastern accents. The city is quite compact, and therefore exceptionally walkable, so you should definitely make an effort to get a good walk in while you’re here. You can get to almost anywhere by using the GPS on your phone and your own two feet.
Jamming to your favorite artists works up a mean appetite. Just like the music lineup, the number of food vendors at Boston Calling has increased every year. You’ll snack on barbecue, tacos, and New England classics including lobster rolls and oysters.
