There will be a machine in the terminal. Take a card and load it before heading out to the bus (plan beforehand how much you need for the whole day so you don't have to stop to refill later).

GIYF (though that could probably have been said already many times in this thread).

this thread needs some new life now that half of the DDF community is going to Boston....

In recent news Tourism to Boston had a spike in July in August due to a website called DansDeals.....

Doesnt seem like it's always a great redemption, what's the cash rate on your night?
Also I'm looking for a bigger room so if I can get an SNA to clear there I may actually do that.

Going to Boston mainly for a day game at Fenway. Landing at 8:10 am and leaving at 7:04 pm. What attractions near there so I don't spend most of my day in an uber or public transportation. We are two adults.

MFA. Expensive admission, $25 I think. Free after 4pm on Wednesdays.
Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, free if your name is Isabel, Isabella, etc.
Prudential and Hancock towers. In the pre-9/11 days, it was a thing to go to the top and see the observation deck.  Nothing special, IMO.

The Public Garden, inc. Swan Boats, are only a few T stops or a short Uber ride, even walkable if you have time.  Brookline kosher eateries are about 1.5-2.0 miles away.

Those who are going for Bosox game, without staying overnight, all seem to be going July 27.  There only are 5 days with a daytime game.  Three are on Sundays, so unlikely people got cheap flights, and the other is August 31.
