How far are the primary conference hotels from the venue? We have also included a map below with the main conference hotels and the conference venue pinned. Both the Porter Square Hotel and Hotel 1868 are about a 15-20 min direct walk to HLS.

What about public transit around Cambridge/Boston? You can visit the public transit website to find point-to-point directions via the subway or bus routes (including travel time and specific fare information). The conference venue is a 10-15 min walk from either the Harvard Square Subway/T stop or the Porter Square Subway/T stop–both on the “Red” line. “Downtown” Boston (the Boston Common area) is around 15-20 mins on the subway.

What to do in Boston? June is beautiful in Boston! The City of Boston has a fantastic websitededicated to tourist tips, maps, and other information. Or just ask anyone from the Center/Harvard. We are always happy to provide tips and advice.

Always check Google Maps! We also encourage participants to use their Google maps for most up-to-date travel information, including directions to HLS, airports, downtown Boston, and more. Boston/Cambridge traffic, public transit delays, and the like can be unpredictable, so it is best to check Google.
