  • Lovely Condo

    "We chose to stay at Dave and Marsha's condo as our son was running in the Boston Marathon this year. The condo provided everything you would need and made us feel right at home. It was impeccably clean, comfortable and a relaxing oasis to return to after a long day of sightseeing around Boston. It is conveniently located right around the corner from the "T" (Ashmont Station) and a grocery store is minutes down the street. Great value as well - highly recommend!"

  • Longwood Studio 15

    "Stayed for 3 nights from Oct. 9 - Oct 11th. Great location for me as my son lives in Allston and it was an easy train ride. T-line very easy 5-8 minute walk. One think I'd advise. The apartment complex is a bit isolated if you don't know where you are going (sorry even with directions I may have gotten lost). However, if your home computer has Google Earth (and if not a library will have it), just look up the address. It gives a fantastic bird's eye or street level view of the entire area. I arrived late at night and had no problem finding the place as I had already "seen" the area on Google Earth and knew exactly where to go. It does help to Google Fenway T-Station first (if you come on the train) to see where you will stop. The apartment was clean but nothing fancy - no probs there. It was good enough weather that I needed neither the heater or air conditioning, so can't say how they work. I would consider the same place again if that helps."

  • Fabulous Stay and Beats Any Hotel

    "Been to Boston numerous times but Kevin's place is by far the best we've ever stayed. The location is perfect - walking distance to great restaurants and shopping, and if you're a runner or a biker, it's minutes to run/bike over to the Charles River where you can run or bike for hours. We've traveled all over the world and stayed at a lot of different types of accommodations - hotels, boats, houses, tree tops, etc. - and Kevin's place is high on our list. One of the great things that everyone expects but doesn't get all the time - everything works at this apartment. The wi-fi works, the tv works, the a/c works, the locks, the showers, everything. The scenario of flying in to an unknown house only to find that the bathroom light doesn't work at 2:00 am will NOT happen here. And of course the pictures show how beautifully appointed the apartment is. I already told Kevin we're back next year!"

  • Great space; great location

    "I spent a week in the Garden Studio and can't say enough about the space or the location. The Garden Studio has its own entrance, a simple, yet elegantly decorated living and bedroom area, a sparkling clean bathroom and a kitchen with everything you need to make yourself feel right at home. The location is quiet and a perfect launching point for sightseeing (on the Freedom Trail), a nice walk to the Navy Yard and about a five minute walk to the subway that can take you anywhere you want to go. No need for a car! I would rent this space again and hope to return whenever I come back to Boston."

Boston Travel Tips

Boston is full of history, perfectly situated on the East Coast and offers several sights the entire family will enjoy. From baseball games at Fenway Park to tours of the city where Revolutionary War soldiers once walked, you'll learn a lot while having fun.

Boston is one of America's oldest cities. It's beginnings date back to 1630, and Boston was a cradle of the American Revolution as Colonists fought to break away from British rule. With so much to offer vacationers, it's no surprise that Boston welcomes in millions of visitors this each year.

Boston Attractions

While visiting Boston, stop by the Tea Party Ships and Museum. You'll also get to see a live theatrical performance of a reenactment of the Boston Tea Party and an original 1773 tea crate from the most important event leading up to The American Revolution. Visitors can check out the Meeting House and hear the story of the night before the Boston Tea Party as well as first-hand accounts of the patriots who organized it. The museum also includes Griffin's Wharf, a 3D holographic experience taking you back to the streets of Boston in 1773. The kids will feel like patriots as they board restored tea party ships Eleanor and Beaver. For a truly unique look at history, don't leave without seeing the one of the oldest Boston artifacts, the Robinson Half Chest, which is one of only two known tea chests from the Boston Tea Party.

One of the most well-known attractions in this New England city is Fenway Park, the home of the Boston Red Sox. "America's Most Beloved Ballpark" offers tours and the chance to see where some of baseball's traditions originated. During a tour you'll view Pesky's Pole up close and even purchase tickets for a seat atop the Green Monster, a 37-foot tall wall in left field.

Take a break from sightseeing and enjoy lunch at the Boston Esplanade. This park sits alongside the Charles River and offers a pathway for walkers and cyclists as well as breathtaking views of the skyline. There are free concerts and public festivals throughout the summer months and the Esplanade is the perfect place for a picnic with the family.

For a more modern take on Boston, head to the Institute of Contemporary Art. This structure houses an eclectic mix of modern art and fun displays to spark your inner creativity. The museum was initially founded in 1936 as the Boston Museum of Modern Art.

You can get a picturesque view of Boston when you head to HarborWalk. This attraction is located on the waterfront and meanders through several neighborhoods such as Chelsea, North End, Downtown and Dorchester, giving you an inside look Boston's local life. This open space is home to several restaurants and is considered one of the city's best spots to visit.

The Science Playground is a three-story structure and there are exhibits where the children can make art and even visit an authentic Japanese house.
