Money-Saving tips for Boston and surroundings

Jump to last reply

I am starting a thread to post some of the money-saving tips I have found while living in Boston. I hope other Fodorites will chime in and post their pearls.

I am doing this really for a selfish reason, as I am always looking for fun things to do in and around Boston without breaking the bank. However, I hope this thread will also benefit visitors to Boston and surroundings.
