Getting From Here to There

Walking, driving, or public transportation are all convenient options to visit any of the colleges & universities in our backyard.  Harvard University & Lesley University are just a half mile from our doors, making for a pleasant stroll, while Tufts University & MIT are around two miles away, better for a short drive in the case of Tufts or a quick trip on the subway for MIT.
