Parking advice for Boston?

We will be camping at the Minuteman camp ground outside of Boston where we will leave our trailer each day and drive-in with our truck. What's the best way to get around? Should we leave our truck in a safe place and take a train in? Or are there places near to Boston where we can safely park the truck and walk in? Californians who aren't used to this! thanks!!

You seem to already know this, but just to re-affirm - you do not want to try to park in Boston. We live about 45 miles from the city and in my opinion take the train. You will find several stops quite near Minuteman and the folks in the office are wonderful about giving advice/suggestions for seeing the city.

Enjoy. Boston is worth the trouble and the MBTA is not a bad public transportation system.

You do not want to drive in Boston, unless it's absolutely necessary. Every time we've been there I've commented how it seems 90% of the cars on the streets have some major body damage! Locals seem to use the braille method for navigation.

That said, there is parking under the Boston common, a great place from which to start your Freedom Trail walking tour.

As mentioned already. I do not live there but we have an office at Congress Street and Boston Wharf Road. There is parking across the street from there. Parking in the city is not .... cost effective, at least around the office.

Thanks so much for your suggestions. Since our vehicle is a Ford F350 dually, it might be best to take the train into Boston or a tour bus!
