Driving Logan to Concord Please Advise

Hello we are very excited to be visiting Boston for the 1st time and after being in NYC for some 8 days we want to stay in the peaceful area of Concord. What is the BEST way to drive from Logan Airport to Concord? We will be tired and he doesn't do well under stress. Please inform of the easiest it doesn't have to be the fastest if it's full of stress, and is there any road cnstruction, or detours we need to be aware of? Thank you for all your replies your help is much appreciated. GOD BLESS BOSTON!

Ted Williams tunnel and stay on the mass pike/90 to 128/95 north to route 2 west. If going to concord center, go straight when route two bends left at the mobile gas.

What Cross Fit said. It's also possible to pick up Rt 2 in Cambridge, but that would be more difficult, figuring out the roads in town. Agree that the directions above are simplest.

What time of day are you landing ? If there is no traffic it will take 40-50 minutes. At rush hour it might take 15+ minutes to travel the ramp from the Mass Pike to 95.

I know you come from a "car culture" place and it may be difficult to think of being anyplace without one ... but you really should consider staying IN. Boston without a car for a few nights and seeing all the sites. Then rent a car and stay outside of the city to see Lexington and Concord. You say you are very interested in revolutionary history. In that case you will probably need a full day for the freedom trail. Then there is the fort on George's island that you reach via boat from downtown. And you might want to add on a Fenway Park tour or pop into the museum of fine arts and so on. You will limit you Boston experience if you insist on staying 45 minutes outside the city because of some preconceived notion that it is easier to drive there than in Boston when in reality there is no reason to drive in Boston at all.

Of course this is only my opinion. It is your vacation and you need to do what is best for you.

Just read that you are landing at 4:30. My guess is you will hit the road 5:30ish ... and if it is a weekday there will be traffic. Consider grabbing a bite to eat in East Boston or the Seaport district to give yourself time to let traffic dissipate.

Thank you great info, do you think it will make much of a difference if we land at 230 instead? We don't travel a lot and he doesn't want us to be bogged down with our luggage. 2 suitcases 2 backpacks and a purse.
