When to fly to Boston
The best time to fly to Boston can be the spring and fall months. The weather is perfect, the city is in full swing and most of the tourists have gone home. You might not get the cheapest flight to Boston during this time, but you'll be experiencing the city at its best.
Boston gets cold in the winter, but if you're looking for cheap flights to Boston, travelling in the winter is your best bet.
One of the oldest cities in America, Boston has historic sites dating back to the Revolutionary War. There are colonial buildings downtown, brownstones in Beacon Hill and Back Bay and preserved mansions now housing museums or shops. But though this is arguably one of the most historical and cultural cities in the US, it is far from a museum. Modern skyscrapers stretch up into the skyline; it is a leading medical, high-tech and financial centre with more than 40 institutions of higher learning and also great shopping.
As tourists discover almost immediately on alighting from their flights to Boston, this is a great city for walking. Wander through Boston Common, where late night concerts and plays often take place in the summer months. Or follow the Freedom Trail past some of the town’s most famous buildings to take in an overview of what is on offer.
