Getting Around In Boston

Wedding events are conveniently located around the Charles River that divides Boston and Cambridge/Watertown. The hotels, major sites, and the airport are all well connected by public transportation (the "T"). For the short ride to and from the wedding venue we recommend using Uber or Taxi. Check out the map below to get a better sense of the area, and keep in mind the stars represent wedding central and the venue, while other markings highlight some of the fun things to do around town.
