Hi Parrot Mom,
Do you think it is necessary to go on-line and buy tickets for the 10:AM departure of the Duck Tour from the Prudential Center, or can one wait to get a ticket when they get there. Sail Date Oct. 5 our of Bayonne and Boston day is Sat. Oct 7th. I was concerned that it might be crowded on a Sat unless we purchased 4 adult tickets in advance.
What do you think?
======================================
Our plan to get to Prudential from Black Falcon Pier is The Subway:
Take SILVER LINE to SOUTH STATION and transfer to the RED LINE going in bound. Get off at Park St and transfer to the “E? Car of the GREEN LINE and get off at Prudential.
Any estimate on how long in time that would take?
Do you need exact change on the Subway?
