Copley Symphony Hall Parking - I would NOT park in the structure provided at the hall. It is a narrow concrete swirl and all of the spots are tight. It is difficult to enter and exit the structure and it is a maze from the parking to the venue. Symphony Hall parking lot is $15. I would do the public lot caddy corner from the symphony (on the street) for $20. The extra $5 will help maintain your sense of calm and fun.

I see lots of contradictory tips here. Before you go, do a little on line research to find where to park. We paid $15 to park inside as I had my 89 year old Mother with me and I wanted to make it as easy on her as possible. Other times we have parked in a lot across the street from Symphony Hall. I think there are three lots across the street.

Very much enjoyed the presentation. we would have preferred our seats more centered and back a few rows from the stage for better viewing.

Arrive early to find parking (at least 30 minutes).

We had a wonderful time. We ended up with tickets front row center and could not have been happier. Extremely enjoyable!

I lived in Boston for many years and was excited to see the pops again. It was fantastic, energetic, engaging and one of the best concerts we have been to in a while.
