Just curious how reasonable it is to stay a bit outside of town and park at the subway stations, and commute in? Is there ever parking available? (I checked the MBTA website, it showed that "Butler", "Mattapan" and "Milton" stations have parking with availability ranging from 58-83%). Just wondering if a) this is accurate and b) where would be good options to stay and then commute?
We'll have two young kids and are driving in so will have a car. We'll also have a double stroller for the kids and are fit and happy to walk places. We'd love to find a decent place to stay for less than $150/night in early Sept.
Are there any locales in particular I should be looking? Or if anyone has specific recommendations that would be awesome too. :)
Our other option is driving in and parking in the city; I'm guessing this is more expensive but since I know nothing of the transit system - is it worth it? Would it save a lot of hassle?
