Boston is a city with a small town feel. It is a very walkable city, so if you're not planning on renting a car, put on those walking shoes, rent a stroller and/or carrier, and get going! Public transportation is also fairly easy to navigate if you are feeling adventurous - load up your 'Charlie Card' and hop on the T. There is plenty to see and do in all four seasons. Here are a few suggestions ...
