    How to Enjoy Boston on a Shoestring Budget

    by RhondaRuth Updated Apr 21, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sumner Tunnel Toll Booth

    Favorite thing: Check out this fun web page to learn "How to Enjoy Boston on a Shoestring Budget".

    http://boston.about.com/c/ht/00/07/How_Enjoy_Boston_Shoestring0962933113.htm

    Great suggestions here, even if you have a slightly higher budget to work with than a shoestring, LOL!

    Fondest memory: Learning that I don't need to fear the "T"! It's cheaper and faster to get into Boston from the airport (or Winthrop) on the "T" than it is sitting and manuvering in the traffic going thru the Sumner Tunnel. The toll is now $3.00, by the way and the "T" (subway train) is only $1.25 each way! Altho, it's even cheaper if you purchase a PASS.

    Walking and Trolley Bus Combined

    Favorite thing: Boston is a small city and many areas and attractions are near each other so that the best way to tour around boston is a combined walking and bus trolley tour wherein you get 2 day pass tickets (about $ 44.95) on the various trolley bus tour companies and trolley stops which sells them and then go on walking around the different attractions as many trolley bus stops are near each other like in Beacon Hill and Boston Garden, Faneuil Hall and Long Wharf, etc. So you can see most of the attractions in 2 days with the combined walking and bus trolley idea.

    Fondest memory: walking around boston and using the bus trolley as transport is a good combination and budget and it saves time.
