Planning for Boston in August

January 15, 2015
Fares from Washington DC:

    Q. We are thinking of traveling to Boston in August for vacation. Where do you recommend we stay? What are the must see things to do? Is there a need for a rental car? All I know for certain is we will definitely catch a baseball game.

    A. No need for a car! Take the T. I don’t know what you like to do so it’s hard to advise you— museums? The Freedom Trail? I’d suggest seeing what other people have enjoyed using

    I do have a soft spot for just walking around Back Bay, the South End, and Beacon Hill.. it’s a beautiful city. And I really enjoy having dinner or just drinks at the Top of the Hub, atop the Prudential Building in Back Bay. But other than that, enjoy the Sox!
