Boston is a bustling city with ample opportunities for entertainment, family fun and a wide array of restaurants to choose from. Living in Boston is expensive, visiting doesn't have to be. There are many different discount programs, promotions and deals for travel to Boston at any given time. Whether you plan to visit Boston for a specific event, such as Major League Baseball games or the Boston Marathon, or to view the historic architecture of the city, you can do it all - even on a budget.

Discounts on Hotel Accommodations
When you need to save money on hotels in Boston to stay close to favorite attractions, family or the amenities of the city, you have a few options. Using a travel website that compares multiple sources and offers the best prices is one option. Smartphone applications are also available for Android and iOS operating systems. These applications often allow users to enter a budget and general area to complete a search.

Travel agencies often have discounts on hotels when they are booked with airfare at the same time.

Entertainment and Attraction Discounts

When booking hotels and airfare, you can usually find entertainment and attraction discounts on those websites. The discounts help families to add to their existing itineraries and see more of the city.

Upon arriving in Boston, it is ideal to pick up a few local publications. Discounts and free entertainment/events are listed in local newspapers and community publications.

Eating Cheap

Eating within a budget is difficult in any major city. This is another reason to pick-up local publications. Many local restaurants advertise specials and offer coupons in these publications. It is one of the best ways to enjoy eating in some of Boston's best restaurants while staying within your budget.

It is a good idea to take note of the restaurants that offer free children's meals and take advantage of those opportunities as well. Always stay at a hotel that offers free breakfast, as that will cut one meal expense out per day.

Boston might be known for its winter blizzards and baked beans, but there is so much more to this city to explore. The skyscrapers make it seem like it's strictly business, but once you get into the city and see that each district has its own personality, you'll enjoy it more. Bostonians are friendly people, if you need a recommendation for a restaurant, bar or attraction, ask the locals where their favorite places to go are.
