Boston Christmas Lights

Hi everyone just looking for some advice around travelling into the city from the airport. I am due to arrive at Logan at 4pm on Nov 29. I read somewhere that the Boston Common lights are being switched on that night at around 6pm. I will be staying at either Harbourside Inn or Bostonian Millennium and wondered if I get a taxi am I likely to hit major rush hour traffic jams. I should be leaving the airport around 4.30 if all goes well.

You'll be fine by taxi from either hotel. You can also take the T Subway - Green Line to either Park Street or Boylston Street Stations. I guess you'll also have to start with a taxi to your hotel first if you have any intentions of being there on time.

Better doublecheck, aidelur -- I heard something like December 1st. If you stay at the Bostonian Millennium, the tree at Faneuil Hall is being lit this Saturday, the 17th, but they will also have BLINK, a 350,000 LED light show coupled with Boston Pops music. Show lasts 1/2 hour and runs every hour at 4 pm.
