Q - How do I get to downtown Boston from the airport?

A - Boston's Logan airport conveniently connects to the city via a short ride on the Boston bus or subway system, known as the "T." The silver line bus stops at all airport terminals and delivers passengers to South Station, in the heart of downtown Boston. The MBTA-blue line bus also stops at all terminals before connecting to the blue line in the subway network. If you plan to rent a car, take the Ted Williams Tunnel from the airport, under the Bay and into the South Station area.

Q - What is the best way to get around the city?

A - It's easy to get around Boston without a car; in fact, "the Walking City," is one of Boston's nicknames. From the western end of Newbury Street, Boston's primary shopping and restaurant area, to the Boston gardens is only a one-mile walk. Faneuil Hall and the North End, Boston's Italian neighborhood and home to Paul Revere's house, lie just one more mile eastward. The MBTA subway system connects to the city center to all major attractions farther afield, such as the Museum of Science, Harvard Square and the Museum of Fine Art.

Q - What's the weather like?

A - Boston is most pleasant in the spring and fall, when the weather is fair, though slightly brisk. Spring and fall also showcase some of the Boston's best natural scenery: the leaves changing in the fall and the Boston garden blooming in the spring. Winters are generally sunny, though temperatures hover in the 30s, and several blizzards hit the city each year. Summer brings high heat and humidity, so take care to hydrate and avoid heat stroke in July and August.
