[About Travel] Boston Holiday Gift Guide 2014

Hubway has been featured in this gift guide (excerpt below) by Sarah Pascarella, originally published on About.com.

Holiday shoppers — or should I say holiday procrastinators — it’s not too late to snag an ideal gift for the Bostonian (or frequent Boston visitor) on your list. I’ve put together five options that will please foodies, families, and fans. And with many of my gift ideas focusing on experiences (rather than stuff), these presents will be appreciated—and memorable—all the year through.

In the spirit of the season, Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Joyous Kwanzaa, and Happy New Year to you and yours! Here are my picks for this year’s Boston Holiday Gift Guide.

Hubway Membership

A membership to Hubway, the popular bike-share service in greater Boston, is a great gift for both locals and visitors. Hubway memberships start at $6 for a day rental and go up to $85 for an annual pass. And if you’re one of the first 100 people to purchase a Hubway gift membership, you’ll get a free cone from Ben & Jerry’s to add as a stocking stuffer (or to keep for yourself).
