Picture 1It’s February in Boston, which means the joy- and color- of winter snow has turned to gray. That makes it the perfect time for The Boston Globe Travel Show, New England’s largest and most comprehensive travel show.

Not only is it great to peruse the aisles of more than 1,600 vendors in order to transport yourself to another, more exotic locale, The Boston Globe Travel Show has some practical benefits as well. There are show-only travel deals, giveaways, culinary stations featuring celebrity chefs and exotic foods, passport services (apply/renew), travel seminars with travel experts, and even cultural performances and entertainment to get inspired to escape to a new place.
