New England Road Trip Part 1: Boston

 

By Georgina Sturmer


Boston is a great city to begin a trip.  The airport is a short journey into town, you don’t need a car at all and it’s easy to get around with a buggy.

Hotel
We spent 2 nights at the John Jeffries House.  The hotel is in a great location and it is pretty good value for central Boston, with suites available at around $200. The breakfast was basic (just some pots of coffee and a few pastries) but that suited us fine.  Our room was small and dark and the hotel was difficult to access with a baby and suitcases (a flight of steps to get into the main entrance) and the staff were pretty unfriendly.  We wouldn’t stay there again but it is nicely located.

Activities

  • The Freedom Trail is a yellow line painted on the pavement that guides you on your own walking tour around the city.  It is buggy friendly and takes you around all the main sites.  We stopped off in Quincy Market for coffee and in North End for lunch.
  • The original Cheers Bar is located in Boston.  Total tourist trap, but a fun place to pose for some photos and have an easy toddler friendly meal.  Boston Public Garden is lovely to walk around and play, our toddler loved playing with the ducks at the ‘Make Way for Ducklings’ sculpture
