I'm from London in the UK so am used to city life but just have some concerns around lone travelling. Is Boston a safe/friendly city, should I stay in the North or South etc., Are the taxis reasonably priced or is the public transport system adequate. I'm happy to explore the tourist trail by day and hope to enjoy and discover some nice local restaurants by night. Where's the best area to stay that can cover this without being too 'touristy'. Thanks in advance.
