"Driving in Boston" Driving Tip by grkboiler

Driving, Boston: 38 reviews and 34 photos

Unless you have a death wish, don't. First of all, the roads are not on a grid system which complicates things. Second of all, some Bostonians can be dangerous drivers, especially cab drivers.

I would only drive in the city if you have plenty of experience driving in big cities. This is by far the worst city I have driven in. OK, maybe not as bad as Athens. I am exaggerating here, but driving in New York and Chicago is like driving in Dayton, Ohio, compared to Boston.

If you are driving into Boston, park your car where you are staying and use public transportation.
