General Edward Lawrence Logan International Airport, BOS

This airport began operating back in 1923. During this time, it has grown to four large terminals. Moreover, all international flights are served in only one of them. Therefore, keep in mind that you may have to spend considerable time here both after arrival and before departure. So be patient and try to have a good time, even while waiting.


Fortunately, the airport is full of places to visit: from shops to restaurants. At the same time, free shuttles run between the terminals, if you suddenly want to better explore Logan Airport. Although why? It’s better to go straight to the city and explore some really interesting places.

How to get from the airport to the city center?

You can quickly and easily get to the center of Boston by bus. Look for the Silver Line SL1 route. It will take you free of charge from any terminal to Boston South Station in just 20 minutes. There is a bus stop near each terminal. And from the South Station you can transfer to metro and get to anywhere in the city. Please note that for free this bus runs only from the airport to the city, and back you will have to pay a few dollars.

A subway ride will cost $ 2.25. The ticket is valid for two hours and includes one transfer. You can immediately buy a ticket for 1 or 7 days for 12 or 21.25 dollars, respectively. Moreover, the pass will also be valid on buses and ferries.

By the way, you can get to Boston from the airport by ferry. This may not be the most budgetary, but definitely the most effective way. Tickets cost $ 18.5. The journey takes about 15 minutes. And you can get to the station on the free bus route. But keep in mind that the ferry leaves only a few times a day and it is better to check the schedule in advance.

What to do in Boston

Boston may not be the largest city, but for locals it is the center of the universe. And they can be understood. Boston has a lot of attractions and is full of entertainment. Gourmets will especially enjoy the city, because here you can try the most trendy and unusual dishes from around the world. However, there isfood not only for the stomach.


This attraction is hard to describe. Mapparium is located inside the Mary Becker Eddy Library. This is such a gigantic three-story stained glass ball that gives a complete picture of how the world looked in 1935. The work of art is called the Glass Room. Today it is rather strange to look at it, because the modern world map looks a little different. There is also a separate exhibition dedicated to the history and construction of the glass globe itself.

Beacon Hill

This is a district with a series of exemplary houses of the federal American style. The historical part of Boston and one of the most attractive areas for living in the city. Nothing more American to see here. Here, as if every street was shot in so well-known films. Brick troutars, beautifully decorated lampposts, some of Boston's most luxurious hotels, charming cafes and shops. One walk will help you become a real American.

Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum

Isabella was a famous art collector in America. She kept her entire collection in a house built on the model of the Venetian palace. Gardner indicated in her will that this building should become a museum and forever remain the center of public education. Interestingly, in this museum there are almost no signatures for exhibits. As if it is playing a game with visitors: in each room there are printed guides, but you will have to correlate the description with the exhibit yourself.

Art Museum

The collection of this museum, founded in 1870, has more than half a million items. Nevertheless, it continues to develop and expand the number of unique exhibits. Particular interest to travelers has the collection of American art, the Egyptian collection, most of which appeared due to the participation of Harvard University scientists in the excavations, the best Japanese collection in the country, as well as the largest collection of Monet's works outside Paris, not counting other impressionists in Europe.

Arnold Arboretum

It is one of the leading world centers for the study of plants. The arboretum was planned and designed in collaboration with landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted in 1872. This is a national historical monument. Thanks to thousands of trees, shrubs and woody vines, the arboretum is recognized as one of the most diverse in the world.

SoWa Open Market

Every Sunday from May to October, the huge SoWa Open Market is open. In fact, this is a street festival, which attracts visitors from all over the city. About 200 sellers bring their goods here, including farm products and craft beer. And also here you can find a department with antique clothes and utensils that sell real vintage. Great place to find some unique souvenirs.

What to eat Boston

The journey to Boston should begin with the classic Clem Chowder soup. It has been made here for centuries, probably. This milk soup is boiled with the claws of the freshest crabs, which makes the dish delicious.

Almost everywhere in the city you can find lobster sandwiches. This is a real guilty pleasure that cannot be stopped. And if you aren’t too fond of seafood, then try the Boston hot dog. Only at first glance it seems that this is an ordinary sausage with ordinary sauce and other toppings. In fact, the local hot dog, like everywhere in America, is not like any other.

From sweets in Boston, you need to try two dishes: Italian canolli with ricotta cheese, which are brought to the ideal by local immigrants, and a Boston cream cake. The latter has been made here with the same recipe since 1856.
