A Boston train trip brings you right into a beautiful and bustling metropolitan city.
One thing Boston is known for is the immersion in education, knowledge, and history. Besides the prestigious institutions such as Harvard University and MIT in Cambridge, there are many places to go for a classy and exciting experience on your Boston train trip. For some authentic Italian cuisine, go to the North End, what we call the “Little Italy”. If you like the smell of the ocean and thrill on rapid cruise lines, hop on a ship at Boston Harbor and sail into the Atlantic. If you enjoy peaceful afternoons with the company with adorable animals, go to the family-friendly Boston Common Park to relax and see squirrels, ducks, and frogs.

The best part in traveling in Boston is that you never need a car all of these destinations are a short distance from the Boston train and bus station! There are buses, subways, boats, commuter train, and Amtrak train options closely connecting every corner of city. I lived in Boston for 3 years and I never needed a car. For $2, you can hop on any bus or subway to travel across, and a local commuter Boston train ride to near-by cities for a few bucks more.
If you are the wild one, hop on a $1 bus or train to New York City for some sleepless nights of fun. New York City is too crowded to stretch your legs? Hop on a bus to New Hampshire for some beautiful site seeing, skiing, or mountain climbing and even scenic train rides. There are too many options to travel around, and the transportation is always very affordable whether using one of the many Boston train or bus options. I admit that with so many bus lines and train destinations, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by all the options. Don’t worry, we recommend you to use the Wanderu travel guides, or directly search for bus and train tickets online to save your time.
So what are you waiting for? Unless you don’t like affordable travel, next time you plan for an exciting getaway, consider a Boston train trip, the city where cars should go to sleep and let the bus and train take you anywhere you want to go!
