A January 2004 trip
to Boston by TERRYD2
Quote: When I left the UK on business to Boston with two of my companions, it was 11 degrees and when we got there, it was -11 degrees! At the end of the trip, it was -20 degrees, not the best place in the winter!

Taxis abound and average fares are around $5-15, but watch the hotel hawks . . . these are guys who are not registered cabs and some of the hotel boys like you to use them (they probably get kickbacks, know what I mean?). Anyway, they tend to be a lot dearer; for instance, the fare to the airport was $25 from Central Boston with one of those guys or $17 with the regular cabs.
Avoid the main shopping malls near the Prudential Center, etc. and head off over into the Italian quarter -- ask your cabby! It’s a lot cheaper, the food’s great and much cheaper!
Don't drink the tea!! They seriously don't know how to make tea and for a regular tea drinker like myself, it really does make a difference on a diet of coffee coffee coffee! GIVE ME TEA !!
We got snow there. It doesn't happen that often, but the weather is very unpredictable and that seemed to be the norm as regards the opinions of the locals. So you never know . . . for one or two days, it was bright sunshine and the temperatures were tolerable, but other days, it was blowing a gale and the wind-chill was about -20 to -30.
