Boston USA | Travel Guide

Boston is amazing city with tons of history. Whether you visit this wonderful city for 2 days or 2 weeks I doubt you will run out of things to do. Here is my Boston travel guide which includes how to get to Boston, my top picks for Boston, where to eat in Boston, and where to stay when visiting Boston. 

How to get to Boston

The best airport in Boston is Logan International Airport, officially known as General Edward Lawrence Logan International Airport. The Boston airport code is BOS.

You can also reach Boston by train. There is Amtrak service to boston from various cities in the Northeast.

Boston is also highly accessible by bus. I use MegaBus or Bolt Bus when traveling to Boston. Both have WiFi on board, huge seats, and plugs at each seat so the ride is extremely comfortable.

Where to stay in Boston

One of my favorite places to stay in Boston is The Westin at Copley Place. This gorgeous hotel is located in Boston's historic Back Bay a seriously superb location. You'll be surrounded by some of the best restaurants and shopping in every direction. A short distance away - 30-minute walk or 15-minute subway ride - is Fenway park. Some rooms even have jaw-dropping views that include the famous ballpark. An even shorter walk away is the historical streets of Boston where famous documents that shaped our nation were signed. I stayed here in April of 2018, you can read my full review of The Westin Copley Place here. 

If you want to stay closer to downtown and right across from Boston Common check out the XV Beacon. Their rooftop is worth a visit for sure - absolutely beautiful views. Their rooms also have gorgeous fireplaces, perfect for a colder visit to Boston. I stayed there in June of 2017, you can read my full review of XV Beacon here.

The perfect stop for a famous lobster roll. Tons of food stalls and a beautiful atrium to enjoy your food. 

Final Thoughts

...even though researching ahead of time is great, I definitely recommend bringing a guidebook along with you. I recommend the Lonely Planet Pocket Guides - they are awesome, and obviously fit in your pocket. But here are some other travel guide books I recommend:

Also, a super common question I get is: What camera do I use for my travels. The body is a Nikon D3300 and I use the kit lens and a Sigma wide-angle lens which I am genuinely obsessed with.

My full list of travel gear, that I take on every trip can be found here.
