If you’re not set on escaping the cold, Boston can make for a wonderful short or long getaway in January. Kayak is reporting a 16 per cent decrease in flight prices from Toronto to Boston in January, while low tourist traffic in this frosty month ensures that accommodation prices are at their lowest.
One of the oldest cities in the US, Boston offers a compelling mix of old and new. The most rewarding trips to Boston balance visits to historic attractions like the Freedom Trail and Faneuil Hall, with time spent appreciating the city’s present-day charms like the Museum of Fine Arts and window shopping on Newbury Street. Boston’s compact, straightforward layout makes it easy to explore on foot, but you can always use the “T”, the city’s extensive network of subways, buses and rail services, to get around if the temps get especially icy.
