Helpful hints online

Boston can be a somewhat confusing city to visit for the first time, even (or especially) for Americans from other locations. So we've posted some useful information for visitors.

  • Our Guide to Boston English (perhaps better called "How English Are Spoke in Da Hub") will give you an idea of the language (and accent) we use.

  • We've also got a guide to Speaking Fannishly for people who may be new to our community.

  • Progress Report 6 was mailed in May, and it contains lots of useful tidbits. We have an online version (as a PDF) you might wish to check out.

  • Planning to drive in Boston? We like to give people fair warning about the lunatics, er, wonderful people who populate our streets. One great mundane resource, Boston Online, offers these helpful (?) driving tips.

  • That last link worry you? Consider our public transportation system, the "T." You can see a map of the MBTA subway and trolley lines, together with information about buses and schedules, at the MBTA official web site. (The MBTA includes commuter boats and water taxis.)
