Welcome to Boston our adoptive city we hope you will love it as much as we do!
A travel newsletter was sent out to our out-of-town guests in early January. If you need further information please let us know! firstname.lastname@example.org
Arriving in Boston:
By Plane:If you are arriving by plane, you will arrive in Bostons semi-chaotic Logan Airport. While the individual terminals are not chaotic, the chaos occurs outside as Logan is a series of five terminals, parking garages, rental car depots, a "T", and other sundry airport buildings and hotels connected by windy roads that range from 1-5 lanes and which are currently in a state of flux. Needless to say if you are unfamiliar with Logan and Boston in general it would be best to take a taxi or arrange for a friend to pick you up, rather than renting a car as Boston is a very accessible city. If you need a ride we have several friends who have volunteered to help just let us know! A taxi ride to the Hyatt or any Boston area hotel should cost somewhere between $10-$20. It is a $25-$30 ride to our home in Somerville. If you are looking for flight information, check out expedia.msn.com my favorite travel info site!
By Car:For those of you making the trip to Boston by car, most of you will be coming from the South and will find yourself on either the Mass Pike or Rt128/95. See the directions listed on the Reception page.
Rental Cars:For those of you wishing to rent a car, all of the major rental car companies service Boston out of Logan Airport. In addition, Hertz has an office at both the airport and in Harvard Square, which is very close to the Hyatt.
The "T" (Bostons Subway System):In our opinion the best way to get around Boston is the "T" (unless you are coming from the airport with lots of luggage!) For $0.85 each way the T takes you almost anywhere you want to go in Boston, if not then its usually only a short walk from the closest station. The Hyatt offers free shuttles to the T.
