1. I have heard and thought about taking the Bolt bus, but quite frankly it has scared me for some reason. Would you recommend it or use it again? Were the seats comfortable? And I hear ya on the wi-fi, I have traveled via Amtrak and had a tough time with their wireless as well. You have to keep it in perspective.

    • I would definitely use them again if it turns out cheaper than driving. The seats were very comfortable actually – way better than airplane seats. I think everybody should try taking it at least once because I was also skeptical at first, but now I know that it is a good option.

      On the way there, we sat on the second row but I had to keep looking up from my movie – yes I was watching a movie – because I kept feeling a bit sick. On the way back home, we sat on the front row and didn’t have that problem at all. Maybe we got used to the motion sickness or maybe being able to see the road helped. Keep that in mind if you take it.

    • The Freedom Trail was very nice indeed. When we first arrived in Boston, we looked at the map and thought “everything is so far, we might have to take the train there”. But after we arrived at any particular destination, we kept saying “Are we really here already?” I think we’re just used to walking around New York, which is a massive city. I think Boston fits inside Central Park… but don’t quote me on that.

  2. I’ve never been to Boston but it seems like an interesting city with lots of history. It’s quite an expensive city so I’ve heard but it’s awesome you can find an affordable lodging through AirBnB. I gotta try it next time.

    • Home sharing services like AirBnB and VRBO are pretty good. Just make sure you read the reviews of any place you might consider. We don’t pick any places without reviews – might be silly of us, but it makes us feel safer. I’ve used AirBnB many times and in many different countries and I have never had an issue. You should try it sometime.

  3. My friend and his fiance live in Boston and I definitely have heard stories about just how expensive it is there. It sounds like you got some really great deals and saved money where you can. I like to go to Duluth for weekend trips, which is about 3 hours north of Minneapolis/St. Paul.

  4. Looks like you had a good time in Boston…it’s such a great city full of history. And with all the colleges there, there a lot of young people there too so it’s a good time. I go there every year pretty much, but now just go there to visit family.
