April and May are stunning months to visit Boston, as spring blooms along the city’s parks and green spaces. October and November will show you an authentic New England fall.
Getting around the city is a snap with the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (known as the “T”), as it includes subways, buses, and commuter rail services that serve Boston and beyond. A single subway trip costs $2.10, and if you plan on making a number of trips, you might invest in a weekly pass for $19.
January is the coldest month, with an average temperature of 37°F (2.7°C). July is the warmest month, with an average temperature of 82°F (28 °C).
Much in Boston revolves around the area’s colleges and universities, and you’ll find that hotel prices in May and September rise accordingly. Book far in advance to snag a deal during these times, and if you don’t mind the cold, try a visit in January and February. Everything is a bit less crowded and hotel prices are much more reasonable.
