The airport of Boston is located in the East Boston neighbourhood of the city, and partly in the town of Winthrop.

The city has a large number of interesting historical sights, and walking tours are very popular, as many of the attractions are easily accessible on foot. The Freedom trail is about a 3 mile walk, and covers sixteen historical sights, including the Boston Common, the State House, Park Street Church, the First Public School Site, Old South Meeting House and the Boston Massacre Site. Other interesting trails are the Black Heritage Trail, the Irish Heritage Trail, the Boston Woman’s Trail and the Boston Waterfront Trail. A few of the city’s favourite attractions include the New England Aquarium, the Boston National Historic Park, the Franklin Park Zoo and the John Hancock Tower, which is the tallest building in New England. Boston’s many museums are favoured by visitors as well, and the city’s markets are enjoyed.
A wonderful way to see all these attractions and the many other sights Boston has to offer is to rent a car from one of the Logan International Airport car hire companies, which include Budget, Avis, National, Hertz, Enterprise and Thrifty. They are found in the airport terminal’s arrival areas, and have their vehicles parked nearby. Passengers have a wide selection of vehicle categories from which to choose, and if an early reservation is made, are sure to find very reasonable car rental rates available.

Passengers arriving in Terminal E can use the bridge on Level 3 to reach Terminal A, will find a walkway to Terminal B and should take a shuttle from the lower level to Terminal C, which is about a mile from Terminal E. Inside the airport, passengers will find services for currency exchange, ATMs and other banking facilities, many shops and restaurants, Lost and Found offices, and plenty of information booths for additional assistance. The terminals are all designed to facilitate the arrival of passengers with mobility challenges.
Arriving passengers can easily travel to downtown Boston from the airport, and to many other areas as well. Free shuttle buses from all the terminals take passengers to the nearby train stations and to the Logan Dock from where water taxis are available. The Logan Express bus is another a popular way to travel, and taxis can be hired outside of the arrival areas.Live Logan International Airport arrivals can be viewed on several online websites, or the airport can be contacted for further information regarding
