The Hynes Convention Center and the Sheraton Boston Hotel are centrally located facilities right in the heart of Boston - easily accessible from the airport, metro, and major highways and roads. No other city in America is easier to get to - or easier to get around - than Boston. Boston is within two hours of Toronto, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Montreal, New York and Detroit. Whether you are flying into Logan International Airport, driving via major interstate highways I-90, I-95 or I-93, which are just two minutes from the Hynes Convention Center, or taking the train or bus from and to South Station, getting to Boston is convenient and stress-free. With the completion of the Big Dig, Boston’s major transportation and infrastructure project, the city features more convenience and ease for getting anywhere you want to go.
For the historian in you, the Freedom Trail will lead you through Boston, stopping at Paul Revere’s House, Old North Church, Old South Meeting House and many other sites. The Aquarium, Museum of Fine Arts and the Museum of Science are also all nearby. Duck Tours can be arranged through the hotel concierge, and some of New England’s most scenic beaches are only a short drive away.
Welcoming and accessible, the Boston area is a wonderful destination for a quick getaway weekend or a several day stay. Summertime means seasonal favorites such as harbor cruises and island hopping, street festivals and window shopping, open air markets, star-studded concerts and music under the stars. Dining al fresco is another summer treat, whether you’re having a five-course dinner, a light repast after a day of sightseeing or simply enjoying a cup of clam chowder and a locally brewed beer. And of course, what summer would be complete without enjoying the world-champion Red Sox playing at venerable Fenway Park? There are walking trails for big feet and little feet and tours by land or by sea. For tired feet, trolley tours take you where you want to go. You can tour with period costumed guides or take a tour with your cell phone or MP3 player. In Boston, you can blaze your own trail with total summer freedom!
