When to Honeymoon in Boston
When to go:
Due to its location on the east coast, Boston experiences a continental, maritime influenced climate. Temperatures reach above 20 degrees Celsius during the warm, wet summers, and regularly fall below freezing in the winters, when snow and wind should be expected. Plan your honeymoon in Boston for the spring or autumn months, and you’ll be rewarded with milder weather and pleasant temperatures. Spring and summer bring fog and thunderstorms, so you’ll need to remember an umbrella and a rain jacket if you take your honeymoon in Boston during those times.

A visa is not needed for Australian visitors entering the United States for their honeymoon in Boston. You will, however, need to have a valid passport. At least 72 hours before you leave Australia you will need to complete an application for a visa waiver. This mandatory for all travelers, and you will not be permitted to board the plane without it. The application is free of charge, and you can complete it online at https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov. An excellent public transportation system makes renting a car in Boston redundant, as is the case in most larger cities in the United States.
