Visit Boston in one day

How to See Boston MA in One Day

A single day affords the opportunity to sample some experiences unique to Boston. You won't have time for full immersion, but you can touch on several singular attractions and destinations. Your focus will be the downtown area, home to the city's oldest and most historic neighborhoods. Start: Boston Common (Red or Green Line to Park St.), 15 State St. (Orange or Blue Line to State), or Faneuil Hall (Green or Blue Line to Government Center).

One Singular Sensation -- On a 1-day visit, consider concentrating on just one or two things you're most excited about, plus a good meal or two. If what really gets you going is the Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of Science, Newbury Street's art galleries and boutiques, or even a day trip, you have a good excuse for not doing more -- and for a return trip to Boston!

1. The Freedom Trail

Boston's signature attraction is a 2.5-mile line of red paint or brick laid out at the suggestion of a local journalist in 1958. Following the whole Freedom Trail can consume the better part of a day, but several options that concentrate on the downtown part of the walk take 2 hours or so. Your goal is to cover -- at whatever pace suits you, as carefully or as casually as you like -- the first two-thirds of the trail, from Boston Common through Faneuil Hall. Start at the Boston Common Visitor Information Center with a pamphlet describing the self-guided tour or with the audio tour available from the Freedom Trail Foundation. If you prefer a guided tour, check the schedule of tours with National Park Service rangers, Boston By Foot, and the Freedom Trail Foundation.

2. Faneuil Hall Marketplace

The retail scene at Downtown Crossing is in a down cycle thanks to the temporary closing of the legendary Filene's Basement (for building construction that was on hold at press time). Faneuil Hall Marketplace offers more shopping options, many of which are outlets of national chains. You can give your wallet a workout before, after, or even (this can be our little secret) during your sightseeing.

3. Quincy Market

The main level of Faneuil Hall Marketplace's central building, Quincy Market, is a gigantic food court. You can eat at the marketplace, but I suggest crossing Atlantic Avenue and enjoying your snack or lunch with a glorious view. Stake out a seat overlooking the marina next to Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park (next to the Marriott, on the side opposite the New England Aquarium). If you'd rather eat indoors, head to Durgin-Park, 340 Faneuil Hall Marketplace (tel. 617/227-2038), or across the street to Ye Olde Union Oyster House, 41 Union St. (tel. 617/227-2750).

Driving from Boston to New York?

I'm trying go get from Boston to Manhattan this weekend to see the art installation in Central Park. We're going to be stopping by in New Haven on the way to visit a friend (and IKEA), so we want to go by car, not train or bus.
Is there anywhere one can park for free for a day or two in the greater New York area, then take public transportation into Manhattan? How do people who drive from Boston to New York do it?
