"I would recommend visiting from April to September"
Author: , a Hotel Planner from , reviewed on 01-Nov-2013
Score of City:
5.0 / 5

Boston is a truly great city. I would recommend visiting from April to September. That is when the city is most lively and beautiful in my opinion. People tend to hibernate in the winter there a little bit. There are tons of colleges: Northeastern, Harvard, Boston University, Emerson, and Boston College to name a few. There is plenty of night life as a result. If you like baseball, you must check out Fenway park as its a classic and like no other park. Boylston and Newberry street is where you'll find the best shopping and restaurants. I would also recommend taking the subway (T) to Harvard square one day.

"Wonderful!"
Score 4.0 / 5

Boston is a wonderful town to just walk around. Even in the winter month of January, our group was able to take in the Freedom trail, and other walking destinations. The public transit was awesome!

, from 29-Jul-2015
"Meetings in Boston"
Score 5.0 / 5

As a cultural and historic destination, Boston is a major draw for meeting and convention delegates and the city is growing at an exciting pace. There are nearly three dozen hotel projects planned in Greater Boston, with a potential for over 3,000 new rooms in the next two three years and more than half the rooms are planned for the South Boston Waterfront near the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Additionally, a modernized Logan Airport and flexible, environmentally friendly venues and convention centers make it an ideal location for meetings. The possibilities for meetings are varied and unique including the Museum of Science, The Boston Public Library, Fenway Park (home of Boston’s beloved Red Sox), the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Institute of Contemporary Art, New England Aquarium and more. May through October is the peak season in Boston and Meeting Planners will find excellent values in Boston from November through April.
