Home to the Red Sox, the Celtics and the Bruins, Boston is booming with sporting talent – making it a must-see place for avid sports fans.

With that in mind, here are six top tips to help you maximize your time when you visit.

  • Create an itinerary

To get the best out of Boston, create a travel itinerary highlighting your coveted spots.

You don’t have to plan your trip to a T, but with a rough guide, you can start saving time before you’ve even left home.

So work out where the places you’ll be going are and the best order to see them in.

  • Choose a central location

Make sure you consider location when choosing your accommodation. For instance, if you’re planning to watch a baseball match or two, try and find somewhere near Fenway Park – the last thing you want is to be rushing around to get there before a big game.

  • Research the transport

Boston has an excellent public transit network to smoothly navigate you across the city. So do some research and work out the most efficient transport type for your travel activities in advance.

This way, you’ll be able to spend more time doing what floats your boat and less time traveling – check out the MBTA website for more information on public transport in the city.

  • Read up on the restaurants

You’d be surprised how much time you can waste deliberating over where and what to eat – so be proactive.

Find out what delicious delights are on offer near your accommodation and the places you plan to visit – this’ll save valuable time.

And be sure to try some of the city’s specialties such as Boston Cream pie, Boston baked beans and New England clam chowder.

  • Book your travel early

Be organised and book your travel as early as possible – it’ll be a weight off your shoulders and leave you with more time to focus on planning your Boston based activities.

If you’re flying to Boston, download a flight comparison app such as Skyscanner, which will find you the cheapest fares for flights to BOS from across the airlines.

  • Pre-book airport parking

If you’re flying, avoid the stress of public transport and drive to the airport and if you pre-book with an airport parking site like looking4.com, there’ll be no wasted looking for a suitable spot, plus you’ll be able to take advantage early-bird deals for hubs such as LAX and JFK.

  • Travel overnight

Traveling during the night is a great way to maximize time because it allows you to travel and sleep at the same time, so when you arrive in Boston you’ll be feeling refreshed and ready to shoot some hoops, watch a game or two and explore this awesome sporting city.  

Follow these tips and you’ll have plenty of time to play on your Boston sports adventure.
