Boston City Break | Welcome to Boston

Holiday Duration: 4 Nights

"Seamless Holiday"

We used Frontier Travel to book our honeymoon. We were given all the information we needed and everything ran seamlessly. We had a fantastic time, the hotels and lodges were perfect. Thank you for organising such a brilliant trip!

Boston City Break

Boston City Break

Boston has so much to offer at any time of year whether for a short city break, the beginning of a longer holiday in New England or as a twin centre with New York or Toronto.

Boston is less than 8 hours flight from the UK and the Logan International Airport is so close to the city centre that you can be in your downtown hotel less than 10 hours after leaving your UK airport. As you can see from the suggested holiday, there is a huge variety of things to do and see in this vibrant and historic city.  Five days is not enough to do it justice, but you can always return.

This itinerary is flexible and can be tailor-made to suit you; if you want to add extra days in one area, extend the holiday or maybe change the direction of travel. Talk to one of our experts about how to make this holiday the perfect one for you.

Ideas

Ideas

Cape Cod
Take the 90-minute ferry from Boston to Provincetown at the tip of Cape Cod. (the fast ferry runs from May through to mid-October) to spend a few days in this most iconic of Cape Cod towns. Driving to Cape Cod is also easy and would allow you more freedom to explore the peninsula.

Visit another City
Another option would be to twin your time in Boston with a visit another US City such as Providence, New York or Washington.  You can obviously fly between cities, but it might be more relaxing to take the AMTRAK train. The journey to New York takes around 3 ½ or 4 hours depending on the service chosen with the added advantage of arriving in the centre of Manhattan.  Providence, the capital of Rhode Island is only 35 minutes by train.

Two-nation vacation
Combine your time in Boston with the Canadian cities of either Montreal, Toronto or Halifax

New England Inns
New England is known for its inns:  why not hire a car and explore the countryside for a couple of nights.  Perhaps take in a concert at Tanglewood, the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge or the Heritage Museums and Gardens in Sandwich. Stay in Castle Hill, Ipswich, the stunning Tudor Revival Mansion or one of the Captain’s inns in Kennebunkport.  The choices are endless.

New York to Toronto – 2015 (Smith)

I have just returned from a tailor made holiday made possible by Jeannette Dembrey. This was the first time I had ever organised such a major holiday and as it was a gift for my children after my retirement it was really important to get things right. I went to quite a few agencies but Jeannette was way better than any of the people who I spoke to. She was so professional and wanted me to get the best from the money I could afford. The holiday was absolutely amazing and everything went like clockwork. Jeannette had thought of everything even the connections between places and the things we would do in each town. We stayed in 6 hotels altogether starting in New York and ending in Toronto. I am amazed at how smoothly it went. Even my son who has travelled all over the world was impressed with the way things had been organised. I cannot praise Jeannette enough for her professionalism. Thank you Jeannette. I would recommend you to anyone with the satisfaction of knowing that you did an amazing job. Thank you.
