Do we need a rental car?

We recommend getting a rental car for your stay. Not only are we located near many beaches, shopping and beautiful landscape, we are about 25 minutes by car into the city. A car is the best way to see Boston as there are limited public transit options. There are many rental car options, including accessible vans. Check out:
