Modern SocietyToday's society is very diverse and complex, and so also are the myriad of issues and needs within parenting today's children.  Such a wide array of questions about so many topics requires equally comprehensive solutions and answers, hence best achieved by gathering all of the relevant different aspects of society all together, in one location, at one time.  Bringing all such voices from the public communities, from government and politics, from civics activism, from business, from media, and from family, all together under one roof, should generate and redefine what those best solutions and answers are for exceptionally parenting today's children within all those complex and diverse parameters of our very modern civilized society.

Boston Travel/Lodging Info:

View of BostonTo plan a great time at Boston Common, here are the links to both the Logan Airport and the local Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, Amtrak and its coastal Downeaster trains, the total do-all MBTA system, national bus lines Greyhound and Trailways, plus great Peter Pan, Concord Coach and Lucky Star regional bus lines, plus the low-priced Chinatown bus lines.  If you are looking for nearby hotels, use an address of 145 Tremont Street, Boston, MA 02111 in your Orbitz, Hotels.com, or other favorite online hotel deal search engine.

AirBnB BostonHowever, for a group of three (3) or more adults, you might find that opting to book a rental house, condo, corporate suite, villa, or similar is actually less expensive than using hotels.  To help you out quicker, here are links to several online reservation systems for exploring such rentals, including HomeAway, VRBO, also this, this, and even this, but we recommend the great Airbnb Boston collection of available rental homes.

While there are a number of camping spots to reserve onsite at the Expo event (see the Region 7 Expo event website), there are also other campsites available within the local area, which can be explored via websites like KOA, Trails.com, Reserve America, Thousand Trails, and the Outdoor Project, and also via federal portals such as Recreation.gov, the National Park Service, and the US Forest Service.

OpenRide Long-Distance RidesharingOne of the most convenient ways to save money while traveling is to connect and share with fellow travelers heading into the event, having either four passengers to a car, or six in a minivan, to maximize gas savings per person (squeezing three people into a back seat might work for daily short commuting, but not at all for long-distance ridesharing). Lyft in Boston This usually makes it easier to get around once arrived, if that will even be needed, but check ahead for any overnight parking fees.  Alternatively, once you arrive in town via any method (including via ridesharing), if you have any personal need to shuttle locally, then you can just click the app on your smartphone for the nearest available Lyft driver.

You should focus rideshare hookup on the dedicated OpenRide forum for Region 7, exclusively and expressly provided for all attendees from those several States, and/or find traveling mates upon the CAPRA State-by-State social media forums.  If your travel group is fairly large, consider bus charter from BusRates.com, IMG, or UMA.
