Suggestions for transportation, restaurants, attractions, and conference hotels.

If you won’t be joining us by staying at the recommended conference hotels, be sure to check the proximity of your hotel to the conference location, as students often tell us that being close made their experience that much better.

CONFERENCE LOCATION

The conference is being held at Emerson College, in the Semel Theater, 3rd Floor, 10 Boylston Place, Boston, MA 02116 (See interactive map/virtual tour). Although Emerson does not have parking facilities on campus, there are a number of nearby garages (See Directions/Parking).

Weather

In mid summer, the average day-time highs in Boston are 82 degrees and the average evening temperatures range from as low as 64 degrees. Meeting rooms may be cool due to air conditioning.

Airport

If it would take you more than eight hours to drive to this conference, ASGA recommends that you consider flying. Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) is the closest and most convenient airport.

Logan International Airport (BOS) is about 5 miles from the conference location, Emerson College.

Public Transportation

Remember that you will need transportation to and from the conference location, your hotel, restaurants, and attractions.

ASGA recommends that you save money while in Boston by using public transportation! Boston is a very commuter-friendly city. You can easily, and inexpensively, take public transportation from the airport to your hotel and to sight-seeing. At your hotel, you can easily walk to restaurants, tourist attractions, and shopping.

The subway and bus routes serving Boston Logan International Airport are operated by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (better known as the MBTA or the “T”). To get to your hotel from Boston Logan, use MBTA’s interactive subway map to verify current routes and times.

Taxis

Boston taxis are available at Logan terminals 24 hours a day. All areas within a 12-mile radius of downtown Boston are charged a metered rate. Beyond the 12-mile radius the charge is a flat rate. Metered-rates from Logan to the Boston-area hotels range from approximately $25 to $50 (one to four passengers).

All fares leaving Logan Airport are charged a $2.25 airport fee. Travel through the harbor tunnels will cost an additional $5.25 toll fee. It is recommended that you ask the taxi driver for a receipt showing the driver’s name, the taxi company, the amount paid, and the medallion number.

Uber and Lyft

Both taxi-alternatives are convenient and easy to use. You’ll probably save money by using Uber or Lyft over a taxi.
