Ahh Boston, One of the oldest cities in the United States, home to the Red Sox, Paul Revere and the finest clam chowder you’ve ever tasted. It’s the perfect place to visit! But unless you want immediately stand out like a tourist or like being the victim of tourist traps, pay attention to these 8 things NOT to do in Boston.
1 Don’t Get A Paper Ticket For The T
You’ll pay 55 cents more per ride If you buy a ticket for the T from the machine in the station, than if you get a re-loadable plastic CharlieCard. You can get them for free from a T attendant.
2 Don’t Forget to Hold on When Riding the Green Line
The train jerks around and brakes sharply and unexpectedly while it makes many frequent stops. And avoid it entirely after a Red Sox game, unless you like being pressed against a happy or angry group of drunk people (depending on the score).
3 Don’t Go to Cheers.
Though the sitcom Cheers did use the real Beacon Hill watering hole for the Bull & Finch Pub exterior shots, its interior bears little resemblance to the bar on the show. For that, you’d have to go to Cheers at Faneuil Hall, which features a replica of the show’s set. Both are overpriced tourist traps anyway so just snap a photo and be on your way.
4 Don’t Plan to Party After 2:00 A.M.
Boston goes to bed early. Bars have to close by 2:00 a.m., many announcing last call well before that. However, public transportation stays running (with limited service) until 2:00 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.
5 Don’t Go to Mike’s Pastry.
The line is always long and despite being the most famous bakery in the city, as any local will tell you, it’s far from the best.
6 Don’t Expect a Regular Coffee to be Black
In Boston, if you order a “regular” coffee it will come loaded with sugar and cream, not plain black.
7 Don’t Drive
One way systems, construction, random dead ends, pedestrians scurrying across the street, there’s no doubt, Boston’s streets are confusing and stressful. And with a serviceable public transportation system, not to mention a surplus of Ubers and taxis, why not take advantage?
8 Don’t Rent and Ride on the Sidewalk
Renting a bike is a great way to get around Boston and while seeing the city. Just ride in the bike lanes and not on the sidewalks. Aside from making everyone on the sidewalk hate you, it’s illegal!
