Thanks to its friendly locals, abundance of bars and one of the most famous walks in America, Boston is a city that anybody visiting the US of A should pencil in to their itineraries. We asked you over at our Hostelworld.com Facebook pagefor your top tips for visiting this city on the east coast of America. Here’s what you told us...
Visit the bar where everybody knows your name
Nick Roberts says:
Go to Cheers!
Visit its parks and check out 'Beacon Hill'
Tracy Lynch says:
Really liked Boston when I was there last year. Check out Boston Public Garden and Boston Common! And walk around Beacon Hill too, it's a great historic neighbourhood.
Enjoy free tastings, avoid some neighbourhoods and visit others
Joe Couture says:
Check out the free tastings at Harpoon Brewery every weekday. Avoid the over priced unoriginal restaurants in the Back Bay and go to the South End or North End for great food.
Try this restaurant for food
Gianluca Passerone says:
Don't miss Redbones BBQ in Somerville.
Do the 'Freedome Trail' as a pub crawl!
Nicola Hooper says:
Do the 'Freedom Trail' as a pub crawl - some awesome old bars along the way!
Be aware when getting around
Melissa A. Yee says:
Remember that Boston is shaped like a pinwheel, and there are mostly one way streets. Take a few left turns and you'll be back where you started. Also keep in mind that there's always a lot of construction going on, so streets change. Don't be afraid to ask for directions.
Use the 'T'
Sara Jordan says:
The 'T' (Boston's train network) is cheep and easy - use it.
