If you’re in New England, New York, Pennsylvania, or New Jersey, consider driving. Further out? Fly to Boston Logan (BOS). Depending on your pre- and post-retreat travel plans, you may or may not want to rent a car.
Getting into the city is easy by Uber, taxi, train, or boat taxi (I’ve done the boat taxi and it’s pretty cool, and reasonably priced). Getting around in Boston is easy if you’re in the heart of the city, either by walking, subway (MBTA, called “the T,” with 4 lines and 114 stations), or Uber/taxi.
Plan to arrive by Thursday, May 4, so you can attend our dinner that evening (see schedule above). I decided not to do a room block at the CitizenM where I’m holding the retreat because everyone’s schedule is different (some are coming early, some are staying late), and everyone’s budget is different, too. Boston hotels are a little pricier than most cities, so you can decide if you want to stay close to the action, maybe right at the CitizenM or nearby, or further away at a hotel of your choosing.
After you register, I’ll send you some hotel options, and you can certainly find a good hotel that fits your needs easily enough on your own, too.
Note: There’s no parking at the CitizenM, so if you’re staying somewhere else and driving over, you’ll need to find nearby parking. It’s a two-minute walk from the Boston North train station if you’re open to taking the subway.
If you’re driving, you can head back anytime after we’re finished at Noon on Saturday, May 6, or stay an extra day or two and make a fun weekend out of it. Boston is a wonderful city to explore for a few extra days, and New England in spring is beautiful!
We’re right near Cape Cod, Nantucket, and Martha’s Vineyard, or you could head north up to Maine, New Hampshire, or Vermont. I can give you lots of suggestions. Emida and I are taking a couple extra days to head to Eastport, Maine, the furthest point East in the United States.
If you’re flying back, either make arrangements for late in the afternoon or evening on Saturday, May 6, or stay longer to enjoy the weekend. The CitizenM is only an 8-minute drive from Logan Airport, and a two-minute walk from the Boston North train station.
