What are the main Boston airport hubs?
Boston just has one main international airport, the Boston-Logan International Airport. It’s about 5 miles from the city, so it’s super easy to get downtown from the airport. You can take the local subway into the city for free from the airport. Just head outside from any terminal to signs for “Silver Line 1” buses and hop on. The silver line buses will bring you to South Station, where you can hop onto other subway lines. While you’re there, buy a local train and bus ticket (called a CharlieCard) if you’ll be riding the subway a lot.
Of course, Ubers and taxis are always an option as well.

The easiest way to get on Boston’s bad side? Trash talk their sports teams.
