    Driving in Downtown Boston can be stressful, traffic is heavy, and roads are narrow.
    Best way is to rent a bike, there are several stands around the downtown area to rent them.

    Okay, this is more of an activity than a transportation tip, but if you go to the Public Garden next to Boston Common, you'll see a pond in which you can take a ride on a pedal-powered swan boat. The kids will love this activity. The swan boat company is a Boston tradition and has been operating since 1877.

    Boston has a fairly decent airport (Logan International), and a lot of carriers fly there. The airport is close to the downtown area, and there are three ways of getting into the city.

    a) take a taxi. This will cost between $10 and $20 depending on exactly how far you're going and the time of day.

    b) take the Water Shuttle across the harbour, once the free shuttle bus has carried you from the terminal to the dockside. From memory, this is about $7 one-way. You hit land again by the Boston Harbour Hotel. Not recommended if you have a lot of luggage or your final destination isn't downtown.

    c) take the T - Boston's version of an underground metro system. The T is actually pretty good and only costs 85 cents (soon to go up to $1) for a one-way journey anywhere on the system. Once again, a free shuttle bus takes you from the terminal to the T-stop.

    If you're staying fairly central, Boston is small enough to walk, so long as you're not in that much of a hurry. You can walk from downtown to the Hancock Tower and Copley Square in about 30 minutes.

    For longer journeys, take the T. After it closes down around midnight or so, you're going to have to take a cab.

    When it was too late for the "T" and the car was in the parking lot, the only available transport Tamir could find was Chris ;-))
    Well... that's what friends are for

    Make sure to drive over the Zakim/Bunker Hill bridge...it's pretty cool. It looks nice in the rain, even. At night it's lit up wonderfully, and during the day you can admire its lines.

    There are many modes of transportation to get to Boston. For instance you can fly into Boston's Logan airport, you take a bus, you can drive, or you can even take a boat like one of these.

    A carriage ride looks like a pleasant way to get around Boston. This photo is in front of the Black Rose pub.
