Things to Do in Boston
Whether you're dining solo or looking for an upscale restaurant for a client meeting, you'll find some great options in the heart of Boston. Try the city's Back Bay or South End neighborhoods, both of which are just minutes from Copley Square and Newbury Street and close to many of Boston's best hotels. Share a few small plates at Toro or Coppa in the South End or stick with a classic like Eastern Standard or Top of the Hub in the Back Bay.
Stuck in Boston due to a delayed flight? Work off some energy with a run through the Boston Common or a walk along the Charles River. Walk the Freedom Trail if you have a few hours, or make a beeline for the North End, where you'll find highlights like the Old North Church and the Paul Revere House. All of these world-class attractions are just minutes from Boston's most populated hotel areas.
Traffic and Parking Information
Avoid the morning and evening rush hours in Boston, and you'll find the city relatively easy to navigate by car. Street parking is insufficient, and some of it requires resident parking tags. Your best bet is to leave your car in one of the many parking garages throughout the city. Some even let you reserve your spot in advance for hassle-free parking.
