Boston is One of the 'Hottest' Summer Travel Destinations...

In the US. This survey put us at #9.

One more reason for high prices. And, they say our transportation system is part of the reason.

Boston was ranked #14 for places to go in the US, so it's a bit of an improvement!

Perhaps Orlando is for Disney while the kids are out of school?

Well I'm a California boy through and through….but my mum was from Boston. It will always hold a great place with me. Really dig my visits there over the years. Boston is awesome.

Orlando is scorching hot with rain everyday and mind-numbing humidity in the summer....I'd think Boston would outrank Orlando in the summer...

As an outsider it's probably easier for me to see why Orlando tops Boston in the polls. The pull of the Disney/Universal etc theme parks is huge in the UK and presumably other countries, and families with children must make up the vast majority of Orlando's visitors. I am NOT, of course saying that Orlando IS better than Boston, btw!
