Begin your trip without any worries by collecting your Boston car hire from Boston Airport. Boston Logan Airport is the largest airport in New England servicing over 25 million passengers a year. The Airport is located 6kms away from the city centre, approximately a 15 minute drive.
The best way to get your bearings in Boston is to hit the Freedom Trail; a 4 kilometre walk that meanders through 16 historic sites such as The King's Chapel, The Old State Hour, The USS Condtitution just to name a few. In 1951, William Schofield suggested that the city links its historic sites so visitors and locals alike could find them a lot easier, and in 1958 that idea came a reality with The Freedom Trail being created. Park your car hire at the Boston Commons, the oldest public park in the U.S and head off on the famous walk.
Once you’ve toured through the Freedom Trail, take a drive in your Boston Car Hire to Boston’s waterfront to visit the most popular, New England Aquarium. It was first opened during the early 1970’s housing one of the largest salt water tank in the world along with its resident Myrtle, a Green Sea Turtle who still remains today. Today the Aquarium is much bigger offering a much more modern experience and a natural setting for its aquatic life. There are over 20,000 animals in 600 different species within the centre, and features an interactive touch-tank and a massive IMAX Theatre with 3D Technology for visitors.
Take a trip in your Boston Car Hire across to Newbury Street for a spot of shopping or just people watching. Head over to Fenway Park and cheer on the Boston Red Sox. Stop in at the Waterfront district for exceptional seafood. Drive your Boston Car Hire across the Charles River to Cambridge; the home to Harvard University, and spend some time with the educators and academia.
Boston is the perfect starting point for any tour of New England and Massachusetts. Take your car hire south to Falmouth and Woods Hole, then take a ferry across to Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket to explore these picturesque islands. Or maybe spend a morning driving to Rhode Island to escape the bustle of Boston, or tour in your car hire to the New Hampshire Coast and enjoy the scenic countryside along the way. Make sure you take time to visit the magical beaches of Cape Cod, one of the USA’s most loved seaside destinations. So much to see, and all perfectly accessible with your Boston Car Hire!
