travel tips for Boston

from Heather Meyer

Dear Guild Members, Have you ever wanted to go to the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) in Boston but didn’t want to drive? Well, I have. My solution is easy but it helps if walking isn’t an issue. I take the train from Kingston. I find Amtrak more comfortable than the commuter rail. Once I get to South Station Boston, I go inside and walk downstairs to take the subway (charley cards may be purchased on your way down to the subway). Take the Red Line to Park Street Station. Get off there and walk up one flight to get the Green Line, the e-train to the Museum of Fine Arts stop. This stop is diagonally across the street from the museum. Once you get inside, go to a kiosk using your on-line receipt to print your paper ticket. There is a coat check too. I have yet to figure out the subway schedule so I allow a bit more time when it comes to retracing my steps. And just to peak your curiosity, I’m attaching a photo from my latest trip there. Happy traveling, Heather Meyer   P.S. Packing a lunch is always a benefit especially in warm weather.
