The buzz about Boston Logan Intl Airport (BOS)
While it might not be as big as Montreal Airport or as busy as Philadelphia Airport, this gigantic airport in the East Boston neighborhood spans across 4 terminals and over 1,700 acres of land, but it still manages to provide a decent experience to weary travelers. You will find plenty of retail stores, cafés, restaurants, and bars in all 4 terminals, as well as free WiFi throughout the airport terminal.
If you’re renting a car at Boston Logan Intl Airport, you’ll be happy to know there is a dedicated new rental car center just outside the arrival’s hall. With plenty of amenities and additional services on-hand at the car rental center, all you need to do is show up at the rental counter and you’ll be well looked after.
Another great benefit is how close the airport is to Boston city. Once you have your rental car in hand, you’ll be mere minutes from the city center.
The best month to visit Boston in a rental car
Hands down, the best time of the year to visit Boston is between May and June and September to October. By visiting during these months, you'll avoid not only the unbearable summer's heat and humidity, but you’ll also miss winter’s ice and snowbanks. If you don’t mind extreme heat or cold, however, visit Boston whenever you’d like. You can even give yourself a mini-challenge before flying into the cold temperatures over at Ottawa Airport.
Driving your car rental around Boston
Boston is a tremendous city to visit as a tourist. Not just because of the thick local accents, either. But for the lively culture, locals as friendly as they are in Canada, gorgeous greenery throughout the city, Boston’s significance in U.S. history, and much more.
While it has a lot of things going for it, one thing Boston is not praised for is its roads. It is not designed in a gird like New York City, and because there are often many pedestrians, you may need to be extra vigilant while driving.
With these two things out of the way though, Boston is quite breezy. Just keep a couple of extra things in mind when driving during your Logan airport car rental:
- The speed limit across Boston is 25mph, unless signs say otherwise.
- You drive on the right-hand side of the road.
- Using your phone while driving is prohibited.
- Parking can be tricky during peak months.
Three local tours and trails you shouldn’t miss
With so much significance in the United States’ history, you could get lost in the tales and remnants of old here alone. But Boston has a lot more to offer. Whether you’re into nightlife, art, sports, beer, or baked beans (you read that right), you’ll find something to whet your whistle here.
But from all the experiences you could have, here are three that stand out to us, and are completely free, too.
The Freedom Trail
It’s as glorious and as liberating as it sounds, the Freedom Trail is a 2.5-mile-long path through the city that passes by 16 historically significant sites like graveyards, notable churches and buildings, and a historic naval frigate. This trail is also completely free, but a donation is suggested in certain locations.
Black Heritage Trail
While it’s now known for its trendy stores and gorgeous architecture, Beacon Hill was also one of the first local neighborhoods where 19th century free African-Americans lived. Take a free tour anytime between May and October and get to know the history here, and the important landmarks like the first African-American school in the country.
A Tour of Harvard
America's oldest university, Harvard is recognized as one of the most prestigious centers for learning around the world. Countless politicians, significant lawmakers, and other public figures called this university home once upon a time. And now you can let current students lead you through a tour of the entire campus.
