Getting to Auckland Airport (AKL)
The most cost-effective way to get from the CBD to Auckland Airport (AKL) is on the city’s SkyBus. The SkyBus runs 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Buses depart every 10 minutes from stops along Queen Street, Dominion Road, Symonds Street, and Mount Eden Road. Tickets can either be purchased in advance or right at your stop for the same price. One-way tickets are $18, and if you plan to take the SkyBus on your way back home from Auckland Airport at the end of your trip, return tickets are $32. The SkyBus has complimentary Wifi and will get you to the airport in 40-60 minutes, depending on traffic.
A taxi to the airport from the city centre takes less than a half hour. There are several different taxi companies and ride-sharing services that drop off at Auckland Airport. You should expect to pay more for a taxi than the SkyBus, but for groups of travellers (or travellers with a lot of luggage), this could be the most convenient means of transportation. A taxi to the airport costs about $60 from the CBD.
Parking at Auckland Airport
Auckland Airport offers several car parks that are close to the International Terminal. Car Park A has the cheapest rates, and you can park here for a week for $75. The car park is uncovered and is just a 2-3 minute walk from the International Terminal. For the ultimate convenience, you can also opt for valet parking. Simply pull up to the terminal and pass on your keys to one of the parking attendants. This option will have you into the airport in less than a minute. The valet parking option offers both covered and uncovered parking spots. A covered spot costs $139 for a week, while an uncovered spot costs $130 for a week.
Arriving in Boston
Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) is only about 4 km from the city centre—a very short distance compared to other United States airports. Inbound international flights land in Terminal E, where passengers will need to go through passport control and customs. However, if you are arriving from a stopover in another US city, you may go through passport control in that airport. Boston Airport is very organized and comfortable, so your departure and arrival experiences should be efficient and relaxed.
Getting to the city centre from Boston Logan International Airport (BOS)
The most cost-effective way to get from Boston Airport to the city centre is by taking Boston’s subway system (known to locals as “the T”). A free shuttle bus takes you directly to the Airport station on the Blue Line of the T, where you can catch a train into the city. If your hotel is right in the city centre, the State stop is convenient. Otherwise, you can switch to the Red, Green, or Orange Line along the way to reach your stop. It costs $2.75 USD for a one-way ticket on the T.
The T’s Silver Line also offers a convenient route into the centre of Boston. The Silver Line is a bus rather than a train and goes to South Station—one of the most popular stops in Boston. From there, you can walk directly to your hotel or switch to the Red Line on the T if your hotel is not located right downtown. The MBTA bus system is slightly cheaper than the subway, at $2 for a one-way fare.
For a simple trip directly to your hotel, you could catch a taxi from the airport. Taxis typically wait at Terminals A, C, and E, but some wait in Terminal B as well. Taxi fares from Logan International Airport (BOS) to major Boston hotels typically cost between $23-35. All Boston taxis accept credit and debit cards, so don’t worry if you don’t have any American cash on-hand just yet.
Things to do in Boston
Visit the Home of the Boston Red Sox, the city’s Major League Baseball (MLB) team. The oldest MLB ballpark, Fenway Park has a century of history, including many victories and its fair share of devastating losses. If the Red Sox are playing during your visit to Boston, try to get cheap same-day tickets. If your stay occurs when they are out of town or when baseball isn’t in season, you can take a tour of the ballpark between 9AM and 5PM. Tours leave every hour and cost $20 USD.
For a break from the skyscrapers and concrete, visit Boston Common, a scenic park in the centre of Boston. The oldest city park in the United States, the Common has been around since 1634. One of the most notable spots in the Common is the Frog Pond, which is a popular spot for ice-skating in the winter. Next to Boston Common is the well-landscaped Boston Public Garden, the first botanical garden in America. In the warmer months, tourists can take rides on the famous Swan Boats for a small fee. Some other famous parts of the Public Garden are the statue of former president George Washington and the set of bronze sculptures inspired by the children’s story, “Make Way for Ducklings.” Sprinkled throughout the Common and Public Garden are many talented street musicians, who provide background music to peaceful walks through the park.
Get Dinner in the North End
One of the most popular spots in Boston for tourists and locals alike is the North End, the city’s version of Little Italy. The North End is located on the Freedom Trail, the 4-kilometre-long path that links some of the city’s most historical sites. Within the North End, you can visit the statue of celebrated American figure Paul Revere and tour the Old North Church. If you work up an appetite, you can’t pass up an unforgettable Italian dinner from one of the neighbourhood’s many amazing restaurants. Once you’ve had your fill of pasta or pizza, make sure you get dessert from one of the area’s popular bakeries, Mike’s Pastry or Modern Pastry. Even if you’re too full to manage another bite, take a dessert to go; you won’t regret it.
Visit Harvard University
You’ll have to take a quick train, bus, or taxi ride outside of Boston to the neighbouring city of Cambridge to visit the world-famous Harvard University. The oldest university in the United States, Harvard is also considered the most selective educational institution in the country. Harvard Yard, the university quad, houses many dormitories, academic buildings, and a statue of John Harvard himself. You don’t have to be a prospective student to go on a tour. The university also offers tours to visitors to learn about the history of the campus and the university.
Also along the Freedom Trail, Faneuil Hall is a marketplace of stores, restaurants, bars, and the distinct Quincy Market structure. Visit the Quincy Market food court to snack on local favorites, like clam chowder, lobster rolls, or Boston cream pie, or try some other favorites, like mac ‘n cheese, sandwiches, or homemade ice cream. You can explore the Faneuil Hall stores or simply people-watch. A fair share of street performers gather around this marketplace, wooing crowds with stellar dance moves or musical skills.
Museum of Science
Since Massachusetts is a US state known for its medical and scientific excellence, the Museum of Science is an unforgettable experience. The museum has many rotating exhibits, as well as its permanent planetarium, Omni Theatre, and indoor zoo. Currently, tickets to enter the museum are $28 USD for adults, $24 for seniors, and $23 for children ages 3-11.
Shop on Newbury Street
For a little retail therapy, Newbury Street is a beautiful area with equally stunning clothing options. Quaint 19th-century brownstones and churches line the street, providing a contrast with the chic and modern stores that make up their interiors. If the weather is nice, you can get an outdoor table at one of Newbury Street’s amazing restaurants for lunch or brunch.
Tour the Samuel Adams Brewery
If you step outside the city centre, you can visit the brewing location of world-famous Samuel Adams beer. You can take a free tour of the brewery or simply enjoy some drinks in the taproom. You can enjoy the traditional Samuel Adams Boston Lager or have some seasonal beers, like their tasty summer, winter, and autumn brews. If you’re still craving some cold drinks and a cool atmosphere, head over to Harpoon Brewery, in the Seaport section of Boston, for a few crafts pints and homemade pretzels.
