Reserve a hostel in Boston and enjoy the German-style festivities
Those who are visiting the US and fancy popping over to one Massachusetts city for a taste of Europe may like to check out the Harpoon Octoberfest.

Top of the priority list could well be a cheap hostel in Boston as soon as you have booked the dates of the event - October 1st and 2nd - off work.

It is set to be the 21st anniversary of the spectacle, which will feature plenty of Harpoon beer and German food on sale throughout.

Music will be playing and visitors can even join in with a game of keg bowling. And no matter whether it is raining or shining, the festival website notes that it begins at 17:30 to 23:00 local time on the Friday and 14:00 to 21:00 local time the following day.

Those who are thinking of booking a Boston hostel near the South Station area might be pleased to note that it is possible to get a free shuttle from this vicinity.

Individuals will get a souvenir pint cup as part of their $20 (£12.87) entry fee and one drink ticket, while those who are under-21 will not be permitted to indulge in the alcoholic beverages.

Moreover, travellers who are strongly considering a visit to the city could spend part of their additional time taking in a baseball game as it is home to the Boston Red Sox, who play at Fenway Park.

Even if attending the sporting event requires an extra few days in a hostel in Boston, it might well be worth it to experience one America's most traditional sports.
