Brrr! Baby, It’s Cold Inside Boston’s Frost Ice Bar

The frigid temps that have recently beset Boston and the rest of the East Coast—with wind chills dipping way below zero—might lead you to believe that one might not want to visit a drinking establishment made completely out of ice, especially at this incredibly chilly time of year. "December was a record month for us in terms of ticket sales," says Colin McKenna, the Operations Manager for Boston’s very new and very frozen watering hole, The Frost Ice Bar. read more »

Halloween Thrills and Chills in CityPASS Cities

If you live in a CityPASS town, you’ll be happy to learn that many are hailed as the top trick-or-treating cities in America. According to the real estate website Zillow, the number one city for devilish door knocking is San Francisco (which ironically has the least number of kids), followed by Boston, Honolulu, San Jose and Seattle. Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, D.C, Portland, Ore., and Philadelphia. What do we mean by best? The rankings represent cities that will provide the most candy, with the fewest walking and safety risks. That means more full-sized Snickers bars and fewer wormy apples. But for those who feel a little bashful relegating their Halloween celebration to ringing doorbells like a spooky zealot, we offer a few mad pagan celebrations, located in CityPASS cities, for adults and families. read more »

How Smartphones Are Changing the Face of Travel

How Smartphones Are Changing the Face of Travel The travel industry has come a long way in just a few short years. A little over a decade ago, travel meant hopping in the family car with a glove compartment full of maps or boarding a plane for several hours, touching down at a destination with loved ones far from home, phones, and television. The question of “Does our hotel have Wi-Fi?” likely never passed a traveler’s lips -- mostly because Wi-Fi didn’t even exist. read more »

Island Hopping, New England Style

I grew up in New England, and some of my best childhood memories are from summer vacations by the shore: playing on sandy beaches, having clambakes at sunset, catching fireflies at twilight, taking hikes through the woods, picnicking in grassy fields, and taking ferry boat rides across the harbor. While I’ll never get those precious sun-drenched childhood days back (don’t we all wish we could!), I can help my own kids create seashore memories like these on a day trip or camping trip to the Boston Harbor Islands, a group of islands and peninsulas just off the coast of Massachusetts. read more »

Love History? Boston’s Freedom Trail Takes You Back in Time

Not many folks realize this, but there are actually two Bostons. The first Boston is the one that most people are familiar with: the city known for its distinctive skyline, defined by the easily-recognizable Prudential Center and John Hancock Building. It’s the Boston that’s a sports mecca (Red Sox and Bruins), the home of first-rate colleges and universities (Harvard, Boston University and Northeastern), a world-class center of performing arts (the Theater District, Symphony Hall, and the Boston Opera House), and a shopaholic’s paradise (Copley Square, Newbury Street).

The second Boston is very different, but just as alive and vibrant. It’s the city linked together by the Freedom Trail, a red brick walking path that leads you through the oldest parts of the city. The 2.5 mile walk begins at the Boston Common and ends at the USS Constitution; along the way, it takes you back in time to the Colonial era, enabling you to encounter some of the most important sites in our nation’s history. read more »

Get a Real Feel for the City on Your Next Trip

Have you ever visited a big city and wondered what it would be like to live there? Being a tourist is a blast, and sure, hotels can be nice, but they do lack some of the comforts of a home – your own gourmet kitchen, private patios, board games and books, toys for the kids, and unique neighborhoods, to name a few. On your next trip, whether it's a weekend getaway or an extended vacation, consider getting a real feel for your destination by staying in a vacation rental. read more »
