RV Parking/Boston area

we will be traveling with a 5th wheel and camping along our route. We would like to spend a few days in the city of Boston/Downtown area. Is there anyplace to leave our RV and stay in the city in a hotel?Or is there easy access to the city by public transportation from any rv parks. We do not want to spend alot of time going back and forth to the city/campground. Thanks.

Get access to a
good Sam R.V Campground book or Yellow pages of Boston phone book OR check website www.rv.net. Usually big cities have very few areas that you can park an R.V.. Your best bet would be to go to outlying areas when there is access to public transportation. Don't park it in a super market parking lot or in an area it might get vandalized..
Money wise you'd be better off staying in your R.V. and going downtown for side trips... Hotels in downtown Boston START at $240...
Good luck...

While I have no real specifics about RVs in Boston proper, I would seriously doubt it would be possible - as in above post. Boston is always extremely crowded (as are many cities limited by geography - the ocean on one side, a river, etc.). It is difficult and very expensive to find a place to park a CAR, much less an RV. If you can get a copy of MBTA (public trasportation system) map, then you might combine that with RV guide to find place to stay. Do you care if where you are staying is scenic? If not, I might suggest looking in Revere area as it is possible to get into city from there with relative ease.

This is a real problem, having just had cousins in a 30 ft. RV visit. They stayed at the Parker State Forest in Andover (there's a first name...John Parker? Harry Parker, can't remember) and drove to the commuter train in Reading. The train in $2.75 each way. There is also a city park in Salem with RV hookups. Look for the Salem website. It's right on the ocean and Salem also has good commuter rail connections. Do not drive into Boston, just to the T and park.
