We took a water taxi from Logan Airport to Boston, which was a great way to view Boston. Boston was a friendly city, the people are chatty and helpful. We found it easy to get around on foot or using various forms of public transport. The freedom trail offers a great chance to see the city as well as taking in a historic tour. Boston is great for sports fans, but if you can't get a ticket to watch any live games then make sure you get to at least one of the many sports bars in the city.
Insider Tip:Anyone going to a game at TD Gardens should know that you are not allowed to take bags into the venue. Small handbags may be allowed in following a security search but rucksacks etc are never allowed. Leave bags somewhere safe and take wallets, keys etc in your pocket instead - it's a hassle otherwise.
