Boston is a mixture of history, sports, shopping, food and education. It's like an all-rounder city.
We got to spend 2 weeks here as we were on an externship programme.
In these 2 weeks, I got so attached to this place that I didn't feel like leaving. There is so much to do, so much to see and so much to experience.
So, let's start on how to explore this city:
2. Commuter rail
3. Rented bicycles
As it's the educational hub, with so many universities in the city, the connectivity of the subways are amazing. Wherever you want to go, you will get a subway station there. And the prices are very cheap. One way is around 2-3$. And they have these very helpful weekly or monthly passes which cuts down the expenses even more. As, we were there for 2 weeks, we took weekly passes which is like 21$ and you can use the subway unlimited times in that week with this pass.
The commuter rail connects the city to the outskirts where the maximum population stays as it's expensive to stay in the main city. We were staying at Andover (cousin's house), which is like 60minutes away from the downtown(10$/ ride).
The rented bikes are really fun. You have to deposit 100$ in the beginning to rent them( everything is automated) and then you will be charges around 5$ for a day or the first 30minutes are free.
But according to me, the best way to explore is by walking.
