Wheres central to stay in Boston?


Me and four friends are staying in Boston for 3 nights in the middle of May but I have no idea wheres central and where the main attractions are. Any help would be much appreciated. I'd like to go to Fenway park but staying by there isnt a must.

Here is a website that can help you to identify hotels and areas of Boston. The city is relatively small and compact so getting from one area to another is not a big effort. Fenway Park is easy to get to on the T.

Central is usually in and around Copley. Boston is small enough and getting around is easy. May gets busy so book early. If you get a good deal, grab it. The Sheraton Back Bay is a good place to look. Close to Fenway and near newbury street

Read the Top Questions on the right. The Central Area isn't just Copley Square. The Downtown Area and Waterfront are also very central, even better located than Copley Square for the Freedom Trail and historical sites.

Go to the Boston forum, then read Top Questions to the right. This is the Mass. forum.

Boston is compact and its neighborhoods are small. There are several that are quite convenient for places tourists usually want to go.
