    Whoever thought to put a train terminal in a sports arena should have lost their job.

    Very cool place to see. Also home to TD Garden, home of the Bruins and Celtics. If you have time before your train, you can even go peruse the team store!

    North Station sits under the TD Garden sports arena where both the Boston Bruins and Boston Celtics play.

    They have redbox here. It's also a decent spot to catch the green line to Fenway from the orange line.

    2 shots of whiskey before boarding, and NEVER be in the car with the ankle-biters. Total buzz kill.

    If you're fortunate (or unfortunate) enough to take the last train, order a slice from Crazy Dough's Pizza - if it's late enough they'll give you 2 or 3 for the price of 1.

    Hungry? Ignore Pizza, McDonald's and Dunkin. Go to the Bier Garden on East Side of station and get a sandwich at the Stonyfield Cafe kiosk. FRESH and HEALTHY and yummy.

    If you're heading upstairs to TD Garden for an event, make sure you pre-pay for your ride home on your way up. Having to fight your way to a Charlie Card machine after the game can be frustrating.

    Only Amtrak Downeaster trains to New Hampshire and Maine arrive and depart from Boston North Station. All other Amtrak services in Boston depart from South Station and Back Bay Station.

    This is clearly the check in for the subway station. For the commuter rail, check in to the TD Garden or a platform.

    Avoid using a typical-looking laptop case. Put your laptop in a generic case could help protect you from being the victim of computer theft. Keep your holidays jolly by concealing your computer.

    In case you need more than one Dunkin' Donuts while you wait for your train, you're in luck! There are two, within approximately 200 ft and eyeshot of one another...

    Catch an early train to north station if there's a game. The trains take longer to leave stops and you'll miss your commuter rail train.

    When taking the green line to catch your commuter train, leave 30 min earlier than you think you need. I've waited @ MFA stop for almost 20 min & then had the train break down. That = missed train.
