FAQs- What are some fun things to do for couples in Boston?As we mentioned in the intro, you can always go for some fine wine and dine at the amazing Boston restaurants, go sailing on a Brunch Boat, explore museums and the aquarium, or attend the Symphony. Nevertheless, there are some things Boston is best known for, such as its famous baked beans, Fenway Park, The Boston Marathon, the bar from Cheers, the Skywalk Observatory, the Freedom Trail, Boston Common, great beer, and Boston cream pie. Whatever you plan to do around here, keep in mind that Boston is one of the more expensive cities in the US, so make sure you don’t go over your budget.
- Is Boston a safe city?Depends where in Boston you’re staying and spending your days. Statistically, the violent crime rate in Boston is nearly double the national violent crime rate. If you’re a tourist, it would be a good idea to avoid most parts of Roxbury, Dorchester, and Mattapan, which are all on the outer parts of the city, not close to downtown. Sightseeing and exploring around here in the daytime is mostly OK, but these areas are more dangerous than the rest of the city.
And since we’ve mentioned the worst neighborhoods, here are also the best neighborhoods in Boston that are much safer: Allston-Brighton, East Boston, Hyde Park, North Dorchester, and Roslindale. According to some sources, West Roxbury is also on the nice list. It boasts clean, verdant parks, quiet setting, a suburb look, and a prime location near the heart of the city.
- Do you need a car in Boston?If you’re staying in Boston itself, you definitely don’t need a car. It’s a walking city and is fairly small and easy to navigate on foot or by train. In addition, parking in the city will cost you $40+ a day, and more if you are staying overnight, depending on the area. On the other hand, if you’re staying in one of the cities in its metropolitan area, a car could come in handy.
