    The main terminal in Boston. Make sure to download the myticket and Amtrak apps, it makes life easier and faster!

    Quick and painless exit to the street. Stick right when coming off the train platform and avoid entering the actual station. You’ll be right on Summer Street.

    Have a long wait? Checkout the mezzanine upstairs above the McDonalds. Tons of seating and at least a few outlets available. A lot more quiet than the main room too.

    Busy but functional train station. The train status board has an interesting attempted duplicate Solari board.

    A big atrium ceiling makes it feel grander than you'd expect. Starbucks right there. Good seating. Easy view of screens and tracks. Great natural lighting.

    Not very informative. You kinda have to know what you're doing. All the trains leave from downstairs and tou wait in the lounge to be called by a red cap. Tip $1 per bag.
