What to Do When You’re Stuck in Boston for a Day
Your flight is delayed, and you’re stuck at Boston Logan for the day.
Unfortunately, going back to the hotel is out of the question, since you’ve already checked out. And given that you only have a handful of hours, you can’t sign up for an all-day experience either!
But that doesn’t mean a fun day is out of the question.
Even with limited time, there’s plenty you can do to make those few last hours in Boston worthwhile. Here’s how!
– Store Your Bags Away
Airports don’t offer luggage lockers anymore, so don’t bother searching for them.
Instead, opt for Cubby.
Our affordable luggage storage service in Boston ensures that your luggage stays safe and sound while you travel hands-free. Just let your Cubber know when you’re due to arrive and they’ll have your baggage storage area ready.
– Explore North End
An iconic neighborhood in Boston that’s well-known for its historical buildings, shops, and delicious Italian food, North End is a treat for travelers.
Also known as Little Italy, North End is a maze of streets, so it’s very likely that you’ll get lost there. But don’t worry; there will be plenty of pastry shops, delis, and coffeehouses that offer shelter and sustenance.
Just remember to set an alarm on your phone; otherwise, North End will definitely pull you in!
– Walk the Freedom Trail
Linked to the American Revolution, the freedom trail connects you to 16 historic sites in Boston, each with a guided tour that provides you with complete information about the sites’ histories and significance.
If you’re not in the mood for a guided tour, it’s just as easy to walk the trail yourself and soak in the view.
– Go to the Sam Adams Brewery
Boston’s most recognized and loved brewery, Sam Adams Brewery offers an hour-long tour of the site, with complete information on brewing techniques and more. Better yet, you get to drink beer too!
Just bring a designated driver with you and you’ll be good to go.
– Shop at Newbury Street
If you have time and money, why not spend both on a few choice trinkets, clothes, and treats for yourself?
Like North End, Newbury Street is also full of restaurants, salons, and fashion boutiques. And it’s a great spot if all you want to do is people-watch while having a cup of coffee.
Time Flies When You’re Having Fun!
For this trip to Boston, make every minute of it as enjoyable as it can be. With the above recommendations, and some help from Cubby, these last few hours in the city will be the highlight of your trip!
