Freedom Trail! Don't miss it. It is a pretty easy walk.

Wow, lot's of great advice here. I now have a pretty good idea how we're going to do this. While I have taken my truck into some pretty tight places I absolutely hate, hate, hate most urban parking garages. They are not designed for pickup trucks. I may opt for the parking lot mentioned earlier but I think it will make most sense to leave the truck at the park and take the train.
I understand there is some kind of walking trail that takes in the major historic sites. I can't remember the name of the trail though. We will want to take that.

I'm just finding that out. What about the Charlie ticket with the 1 week link pass?


The one week pass is a Charlie Ticket, I guess, based on the MTBA web site. If that's what you're getting, then you can safely ignore what I wrote.

For a la carte single fares a Charlie Card is cheaper than a Charlie Ticket, and it took me far too long to suss out how to obtain said Charlie Card. That was all. Living in Vermont I'm more likely to head down to Boston for a day trip or maybe an overnight/weekend than a week, and single ride fares usually end up being more economical than a day or week pass for me in such situations.


We go to the Red Sox games frequently and leave from Riverside station, they are always selling the Charlie Cards and if I remember you can load any amount of money on the cards. Do they sell the cards at all stations? probably not. But maybe a good guess at all the major hub stations.

edit*** Never mind, it's the Freedom Trail, I remember now.


Yep - a good walk that includes many sites, but also puts you in the vicinity of some of the other destinations around the harbor, Quincy Market, etc.

Lived in Boston area for 20 years in the town of Harvard. I would recommend Minuteman RV park in Littleton MA. It is a relativey small park in Westford MA. This is near Lexington and Concord which you can drive to. Also near two commuter train stations where you can catch a train to downtown Boston.

You do not want to try driving your truck into Boston unless you really enjoy total frustration!


I second Lampooner. We stayed there last year and really enjoyed it. Lots of trees, nice pool, well maintained. But have your bug juice handy, the skeeters were thicker than thieves!!
