Stephanie from The Roaming Fox, shares with us, prices in Boston, USA; including accommodation, travel, food and attraction ticket costs.

We know how hard it can be to budget and plan a trip to a new country. Prices online can vary and it can be hard to find a fixed range of prices for anything further than a hotel and flight. That is why we have created this Cost of Travel series where we ask travel experts and expats the travel costs and prices in their favourite countries and homes.
