NYC to Boston via the Amtrak Acela

If you ask me, I feel the best way to get from Hoboken to Boston is by train. Just this Christmas Holiday I took the Acela ( HomePage) to Boston from New York City round trip to be with my family. The price was $218 round trip but worth every cent. Granted you can get Continental Airlines round trip flights for $170 including tax (checked on and basic fees but this does not include the cabs to and from both Airports. Also, the train puts you there in 3 hours 45 minutes at either Back Bay or South Station, as opposed to Logan Airport which is well outside the City Center.

Here is a vieo clip of the train travelling at top speed of 150 mph:
