So my daughter and I have been gifted a place to stay in Medford, MA, this weekend and we have a super tight schedule. We will be on Frederick Ave in Medford and need to know the fastest way to get to the Museum of Science. There is apparently no Hopstop for Boston, so I'm hoping that one of you amazing nerds can help out some other nerds to get there.
Staying in Boston's North End, have to check out of an Airbnb at 11am, don't have to be at Logan until 3:30ish. Four people with big suitcases. What to do with the suitcases so we can enjoy our last day in town? Airbnb host can't accomodate me with a late check-out or luggage storage. No local friends/family. Help?
My son is driving 4 teenagers (I think they're all boys, not sure) from Ithaca to Boston today to go to PAX East . Some cousins were going to put them all up but one cousin got very sick last night and they cannot. Where should these guys look for a place to stay? They're on a tight budget. Thanks.
On the return leg of our American incursion, we'll be flying in from Florida and connect to our international flight with Delta. Currently JetBlue arriving 3 1/2 hours before our international flight departs is looking like the best option. Is that enough time to get our luggage in Jetblue (Terminal C) and then get through to Delta (Terminal A) check in and clear security?

I am going to Boston this weekend. I have been there a billion times but have never really done any Bostony things. What should I plan to do? Things I like: seafood, New Englandyness, American history, public transportation, and roast beef but I think I've got that covered.

My wife and I are currently driving a moving truck to the Boston area. We were supposed to arrive at a storage facility to unload some things by 6pm and return the truck to Uhaul this evening, but we won't make it to the storage facility in time. So now we need a place to park the 15' truck overnight. Does anyone know who can take our money and let us do this in the Boston/Cambridge/Somerville area tonight? [more inside]

Someone close to me has found himself in a psych ward at Massachusetts General in Boston, without a working smart phone or computer. If they decide not to let him out soon, I may need to get him a computer, or some other way of doing his student assignments. However, apparently I can't send him anything c/o the hospital.

I came back to take care of some personal stuff in New England this week, but it's all already done! So outside of a couple evenings and dinners with family and friends, I have the next few days free. I have some money and some time and a rental car - what adventures do you recommend?

Thanks to some super cheap plane tickets, I'm traveling alone next week, departing from BNA and flying to BOS. Is 2.5 hours enough time to get onto an international flight to PVG in Terminal E on Tuesday at Boston Logan airport? Will 3.5 hours be enough time coming back?
Do I have enough time to munch on a Lobster Roll at BOS? Semi-special snowflake: I've got 2 separate itineraries, and still debating whether I want to check in luggage. [more inside]

My family will be joining me in the Boston area for Christmas this year, for the first time, for only a few days surrounding the 25th. If we were in NYC, near where I grew up, I'd know exactly what to do - see the windows, Rockefeller Ctr, St. Patrick's, the Grand Central train show...but I don't know what the Boston equivalents of these sightseeing traditions are. One caveat: Boston seems big on performing arts events for the holidays, and we probably aren't going to be able to coordinate schedules for ticketed events. I'm looking for things you can just drop in to. [more inside]

I'm heading to a sf writing workshop in Massachusetts and I was planning on staying with some friends in Boston on Friday night (TOMORROW) on my way there. I was planning on enjoying a day in Boston and hanging out with these friends. Unfortunately, they are sick – pneumonia or something. Uh oh. [more inside]
