thanks Bahiana77, I took a look on the megabus site a few weeks back and got some good prices so will probleys travel via them for boston>NYC and then from NYC>Philadelphia. Thanks for the suggestions on things to, any suggestions for hotels in boston as we are considering starting our trip staying in a hotel, then hostels / motels for the remainder.
Hey I saw your post about landing in Boston and trying to find things to do and places to stay. Reading a bit about what everyone posted, it sounds like all the bases were covered. But if you need some advice when you land, email/private message me and I'll give you my contact info to call when you're here. I'll be happy to point you in the right direction in terms of hotels to stay at, things to do, and transport to NY.
Hey Matt thanks mate, could you name a few good hotels to stay in and also what area would be best to stay in? We are looking to book in the next week or so.
In terms of transport to NY i think we will pre book using megabus as it seems to be the cheapest option. Thanks
I have been looking on the internet for some hotels, and have came across the Courtyard Downtown Boston/Tremont Hotel. Its location seems pretty central and it is only 3 miles from Logan international airport which is handy. The hotel is in the theater area of boston and the price I have came across was £115 each for me and my mate for 3 nights which seems very good considering the location. Is the the theater area a good area to stay and will we be located close to nightlife etc?
The theater district is close to "The Alley" - a big nightlife hub as well as the Roxy nightclub, and Venue. So yeah, there are a bunch of nightlife options in the theater district.
In terms off sightseeing, make sure you add a walk along the Charles River Esplanade (staring from the Charles MGH stop) walking towards the Harvard Bridge. Do this about an hour and a half before sunset. Great photo opp!!!
Have fun in Boston!!!
