I have a question for the local experts in Boston.
My parents (ages 55-60) are travelling on an East Coast tour that ends in Quincy Market.
From Quincy Market, they need to catch a Greyhound Bus that will take them to Washington DC.
I wanted to know what is the best way for them to commute from Quincy Market to Greyhound (700 Atlantic Ave).
Is the distance walkable? (They will have 2 cabin sized bags with them). They are pretty fit and can easily walk 20 mins without problems. If it is walkable, then is the area safe to travel walking at around 6-7pm.
If not, then what are the other alternatives they have. Can they hail local cabs outside Quincy market? Is there a regular cab stop close by where cabs can be hailed readily?
One final question would be, how is the New England Aquarium? Is it a good place for them to spend 1/2 day?
Let me know.
Thanks in advance for all the responses.
