Boston and New England Cruise - 13 days from October 3rd to 15/2016.....

We followed this blogger on his trip to New York, and now we are going to follow him to Boston – 5 days in Boston and a week-long Holland America New England cruise. 

Cost of Boston trip – October/2016 - Airfare $213 (used mileage)  - XV Beacon Hotel (5 nights) $2266.10 - Cost of Cruise from Boston to Montreal - $2364  American dollars.

On Monday, I took a flight from Jacksonville and got into Logan Airport about 7 pm.  I met my travelling companion at the airport – this is the same solo traveler that I met in New York.  We both had our own hotel room, and each paid for meals.  We split cabs and tips – it is nice to have a companion in Boston.  

We took a cab to the hotel ($30) and in Boston, you go under the water driving in from the Airport through the Big Dig Tunnel.

We stayed at the XV Beacon Hotel, right downtown.   The hotel was located on a one-way street, which made getting in and out of cars easier.  It was good weather in Boston – very nice for the 5 days, even though Hurricane Matthew was blowing down south. 

At about 9 that night, we went right across the street to Emmet’s Irish Pub.    The Pub was not busy - I had bangers and mash with bone marrow with a beer ($25)  - a very nice historical pub.
