Pros: The bus was very timely and the trip was quick. Cons: If the backs of the seats went a bit higher, they would be more comfortable. Tips: Get there earlier if you want to have a window seat.

Pros: This was my first time taking a Greyhound bus and travelling alone so I was a bit apprehensive. I told the driver that it was my first trip on a bus and that I was nervous. He was so nice and friendly and he said that he'd take good care of me. The bus left on time and arrived on time. Cons: This isn't a Greyhound issue but it would be nice to have more food/refreshment options at the South Station bus terminal in Boston.

City Information

Boston

Boston is one of the oldest cities in the country, but it is kept young and fresh with the help of over 150,000 students who flock to the city’s prestigious universities every year. Beantown’s many sights and activities celebrate American history, prolific sports teams, and New England seafood. So let's spill the tea (into the harbor, if you will):

Boston's Freedom Trail is the best way to see the city on foot and visit some of the most iconic landmarks of the American Revolution: from Bunker Hill and the USS Constitution to the Old North Church and Faneuil Hall. The Freedom Trail officially begins in Boston Common, the oldest public park in the U.S. and a beautiful spot for walking, picnicking, or ice skating in the winter. Foodies will love tasting the Italian cuisine in the North End and the modern eateries of South End, while sports fans can tour Fenway Park, and art lovers can explore the expansive Museum of Fine Arts.

From Boston, travelers can easily get to the beachy summer destination of Cape Cod, or surrounding states like New Hampshire, Vermont, and Rhode Island. With four main train stations and several bus stops in the city, as well as Boston Logan Airport (which, by the way, has some excellent airport food), Boston is a central hub for travel throughout New England and beyond.
