See Boston’s Historic Haunts On A Budget

This is the cradle of patriotism, the site of Paul Revere’s historic ride and home to the USS Constitution.

But it’s also home to a new greenway, high fashion at low prices, discount theater tickets, great public transportation and cool places to eat well on a budget.

The combination of old and new, historic and trendy, gives Boston its unique personality — and provides limitless opportunities for a visit that doesn’t require help from one of the city’s leaders in venture capital.

Here’s the secret of why Bostonians “pahk their cahr in Hahvid Yahd” — because it’s too expensive to park it in the city.

If you plan to stay in Boston, there’s no need to rent a car. The city’s public transit — known locally as “the T” — is an easy-to-follow color-coded system that is safe and inexpensive, just $2 per ride, with kids free.
