Boston is well served by air, rail, bus, and car. Domestic and international flights arrive/depart from Logan International Airport, where public transport will get you to the city center in no time. Amtrak, Greyhound, and local MBTA commuter train and bus services also serve the city.
Live music is the beating heart of Boston's cultural scene, and there are many places to catch a gig, including the university campus. Listen to current students or alumni, or head to top city venues such as House of Blues, Paradise Rock Club, and Symphony Hall.
Experience the quirky side of Boston at the Mary Baker Eddy Library, home to the unique Mapparium, a walk-in stained glass globe. Other highlights include the Minuteman Bikeway, an 11mi. path running through different communities, the Franklin Park Zoo, and the Venetian style former home of art collector Isabella Stewart Gardner, now a museum.
There are a range of modern, spacious apartments for vacation rental within walking distance of Berklee College of Music. The university campus area is in the heart of Boston, so if your family books for this location you'll be close to local amenities, nightlife, and a first-class music scene.
