...I always drive up and park and do a ton of touristy stuff and pay for parking but this time I am going on a skateboarding trip Friday - Monday and have been told that I can skate to pretty much all the spots in Boston like the Aquarium...Chinatown...Nashua Street Park...etc.

So I am wondering, since we always make our skate trips as cheap as possible, if we should book a Motel 6 in Framingham ($60 a night) 30 minutes away, drive to and park in some suburb near Boston with not so bad parking and use public transit to get into Boston. (Prob get real tired of thsi real quick)

Not drive up from NJ and instead take a Bolt Bus and stay in a hostel in Chinatown...which, comes out to more money overall in terms of a place to stay. But no worries about parking or getting around Boston...how long does the T run for btw?

Lastly, book a closer hotel...but car or no car?

Other than skating, I did wanna show my friends the Sam Adams brewery...we would also go out at night.

I also wanted to kinda go camping on our last night...I have a friend who lives in Boston who said we could crash but I feel rude.

And he has 3 room mates.

But yeah, thanks.
