What to Bring     What to Know    Where to Stay

 

Day 1: Arrival to Bawston

Welcome to Bawston! Home of the Red Sox, Patriots, and of course the famous clam chowder. You will not need a car for this trip, as Boston is a very walkable city and you can take cheap ride-hailing apps like Lyft or Uber to just about anywhere.
