Chicago, Illinois

Chicago is the largest city in Illinois, and its O'Hare International Airport is big enough to handle the needs of any passenger. American Airlines, United Airlines, and JetBlue Airways offer nonstop flights to Boston through this airport. If you live in the area and decide to park your car at the airport, you will find multiple parking areas. The daily parking lots are the best bargain, as prices range from $31 per day for weekend parking to $33 per day for weekday parking. Valet parking starts at $48 per day, and the economy lots, which are farther from the airport, charge $19 per day.

Transportation to the airport is available by taxi, shuttle, and city bus. PACE, CTA, and METRA all have stops at the airport, and shuttles and taxis make regular runs, as well. A variety of restaurants at the airport serve hungry passengers, and these restaurants include Eli's Cheesecake, Auntie Anne's, McDonald's, Starbucks, and Chili's To Go.

Boston, Massachusetts

Some of the oldest buildings in the country are in Boston, but the city also boasts numerous restaurants, museums, and outdoor attractions. When you plan your trip to Boston, you might enjoy a combination of these attractions, as well as a trip to watch the Red Sox play.

Discover Boston

Travelers arriving in Boston at Logan Airport have a variety of transportation options available. The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority provides service throughout the Boston metropolitan area by train and bus, while some travelers might prefer taxis. There are nine rental car agencies on-site, including Thrifty, Advantage, Hertz, and Enterprise for those who prefer driving around the city.

One of the best times for a trip to Boston is in August because the highs are around 80 degrees Fahrenheit and the city experiences less rainfall. Winter can bring temperatures in the mid-20s and low 30s, while fall temperatures reach the high 50s. The warm weather in the summer gives you more time to spend outside.

The Freedom Trail is one of the things you cannot miss on your trip, and you can find several local companies offering historic walking tours. Some of the other top historic sites in the city are Old North Church, Beacon Hill, and the Boston Public Library. You can also take a tour of the Samuel Adams Brewery, which still makes beer the way it did decades ago, and you can watch a live performance by the Boston Symphony Orchestra. The Museum of Fine Arts and Boston Public Garden also delight travelers.
