TIPS for this type of trip:
1. The city centre area of Boston is not laid out in any logical order (they claim it followed old cow paths), so driving can be a challenge. Public transit is very efficient and easy to use but park your car away from the city to save money.
2. In Boston, get a public transit CHARLIE CARD
rather than a CHARLIE TICKET if you will be using both subways and buses. The CARD
includes transfers. Both can be reloaded at the machines in subway stations and on the buses.
3. Both the Go Boston and the Boston City Pass have advantages. Check them out before you travel.
