Driving

Boston is one of the most difficult cities in North America to drive in. The many one-way streets, the haphazard street layout, horrible winter weather, narrow lanes dating to the Colonial era, and aggressive -- near suicidal -- driving style of the natives combine to make the roads a dangerous place for the visiting driver. In addition, a gargantuan construction project to build an underground freeway bypass, known locally as the Big Dig (http://www.bigdig.org/), has kept traffic snarled in the city center since 1991.

Public transportation

Fortunately, considering the hostile driving conditions, there is an excellent mass-transit system in place, known as the T (http://www.mbta.com/).
