When I lived in New Hampshire, a trip south to Boston was a major happening. It was a trip to “the big city” without the chaos of New York City, and with a still kind of small town feel. There was never a shortage of things to do in Boston, and the drive was short enough that we never had to worry about the expense of the hotels in Boston.
I haven’t visited Boston since those days when I was a kid in New Hampshire, however, and I’ve always wanted to go back and be a proper tourist. After all, back then I was far too young to enjoy many of the things Boston is famous for.
Thankfully, despite the fact that it’s not as big as New York, there are still often cheap flights to Boston from points all over the U.S. In fact, there are great deals flying from Boston to cities in Europe on a regular enough basis that I’m thankful there are such good deals on fares to Boston. Next time I see one of those cheap flights to Germany from Boston, all I need to do is hunt down a deal to Boston to make it work.
And to anyone who’s flying through Boston during the holidays, remember that keeping track of your flights is especially important at this busy time of year. Every airline that serves Boston makes it easy to track flights online, such as this US Airways flight status page, so be sure to bookmark the sites of the airlines you’re flying.
