Getting Around Boston

Boston is a compact city with ample green space. Most of the sights and attractions are located within an area that is only about 3 sq miles, so Boston is largely navigable on two feet (or two wheels). But when the weather is bad or the distance is just too great, there are several options for getting around Boston, whether by subway, bus or boat.

Broadly speaking, you don’t need – and probably won’t want – a car during your time in Boston. Parking is limited and traffic and navigation can be a nightmare. If you happen to have one (eg, if you drive here), your best bet is to find a safe parking place and leave your vehicle there for the duration of your stay, though it may come in handy for trips out of town.  Read more about getting around Boston at Lonely Planet…
