Default Are you Boston bound during Convention Week?

If you are coming to Boston for a precruise, the week of July 26th -29th, Just a warning about what the city will be like...They have closed many roads in and around the city, and are warning of massive delays at Logan, advising getting to the airport 4 hours, prior to your flight so . if you are arriving there, the airport could be chaotic.....the city will be a mess, and many who work, and live in Boston, are leaving, so I thought I would take a minute,so you will be able to plan accordingly...

I think I will remain here in the beautiful Lakes Region of NH and dangle my dainty toes in Lake Winnipesaukee while I dream of my upcoming cruise on Carnival Spirit.

Cruznut2 stop by the Margate and have a cold one by the pool for me....

My SO works in Downtown, and i travel through the city 3 or 4 times a week.. Last March when i saw what the city was going to be like we both put in for Vacations and booked a cruise. We are getting out of Dodge. The only down side is that it caused me to be Stacked ( sigh ) oh well.....

Only in Boston do they end an event before it begins! (26-19?) Sorry Trip, I had to laugh. ;-)

i was wondering who was going to pick up on that little date faux pas.
Staying far far far away from Beantown during that time, unfortunatley my son is working on a job in Roxbury so i imagine this will impact him.

Hopefully things won't be too bad the day before (25th). I think I'll be through there early enough so that it won't matter.
