to the Aquarium: The Subway
|While Logan Airport does
not have a subway terminal at the airport (like Atlanta), there is a free
shuttle (a bus) that will take you to and from the airport subway station
on the blue line. Bus #22 serves terminals A and B, and Bus #33 serves
terminals C, D, and E. When we did this on our last trip, the bus stop
was at the lower deck, the buses were city buses (not charters), and "subway"
was listed in the bus destinations scrolly thing. Many people take
the buses to get to the T, so you can probably just follow the crowds.
Things to do in Boston
There are more touristy things
to do in Boston than there are bad drivers in Atlanta. We might suggest
that if you want to see some of the historical sites around the Boston
area, you start in the touristy area (Faneuil Hall/Quincy Market and by
the Aquarium) and see what interests you. A few "all-in-one" touristy options
Trail: The Freedom Trail is a 2.5 mile walk through Boston that
visits a number of historical locations. The trail is marked by a long
yellow(?) line on the ground, and lotsa families with irritated teenagers.
A few places you might want to
check out include:
Hey it's America. Why walk when we can sit in traffic? There are a number
of "trolley" companies in Boston that will sell you a day pass ($20+) that
allows you to get on/off their trolleys as much as you want. Sure its touristy,
but you get Historic Boston in a nutshell, plus a little entertainment
when the trolley driver starts yelling at traffic, forgetting his microphone
is still on.
Hall / Quincy Market: Like The Underground, but..above ground.
USS Constitution: "Old
Ironsides" Ship and Museum (free)
Hill Monument: commemorates the....Battle of Bunker Hill
Building Observatory: Great view of downtown Boston ($6)
The Boston Common & Swan
Nack, Ouack, Pack, and Quack.
Square: See where all those sweatshirts come from
of Science: See Dave and his HUGE Van
de Graaff Generator! ($10)
Park and The
Boston Beer Works (across from the stadium)
Where nobody knows your name. Buy a t-shirt.
down like this guy.
We don't make no claim that any of this is correct useful or spelled right
