Event Location, Transportation, and Lodging—Boston

History Camp Boston 2023

Getting to History Camp

History Camp Boston will be held at Suffolk University Law School’s Sargent Hall, located at 120 Tremont Street in Boston  (Google map), in downtown Boston across from the Old Granary Burying Ground on the Freedom Trail and steps from Boston Common.


Boston’s Logan Airport is the closest airport; Manchester-Boston Regional Airport in Manchester, New Hampshire, and T. F. Green in Warwick, Rhode Island are both within about an hour’s drive.

When making your reservations, consider staying at least through Sunday afternoon.

Mass transit

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority website and the MBTA Trip Planner. have helpful information about using the subway (the “T”) and commuter rail. Google Maps includes information on all transportation options.

Commuter Rail and Amtrak
Amtrak serves Boston making stops at Back Bay, South Station, and North Station (check schedule for specific stops). South Station is the closest station to the event and is served by the T as well as taxi cabs and Uber/Lyft. It’s about a 10 minute walk to Suffolk from South Station and a 15 minute walk from North Station.

Outlying T Stations
To avoid driving in the city, head to one of the outlying subway stations where you can park and take the subway in. The station locations: Blue Line – Wonderland, Green Line – Riverside, Red Line – Alewife or Braintree. The stop closest to Suffolk Law School is Park Street on the Green and Red lines. From there, it’s a two minute walk.

Alternatively, the Blue line goes to Government Center, which is a couple blocks from Suffolk. The Government Center station is on Cambridge St., which turns into Tremont St.


If you are driving, on a Saturday morning there’s not much traffic. We recommend two garages, both of which are close and modern:

    The garage entrance (pictured below) is at 32 Tremont Street and it is open 24 hours. For additional information, view their For additional information, visit their website or call them at (617) 646-7237.

There are hundreds of hotel choices throughout the area—from hotels and Airbnbs in the city to less expensive lodging outside the city.

Even if you’re not flying in or driving a long distance, you may wish to consider staying in or near Boston. History Camp takes place on Saturday and we’ll have a special event Saturday night. In addition, some local organizations may have special tours, events, or discounts for History Camp attendees on Sunday.

The Parker House is just steps from Suffolk Law School where History Camp takes place. It is a legendary hotel and can be expensive.

If you stay outside of Boston, driving in or taking mass transit on a Saturday will not be bad. You can also drive to one of the outer MBTA stations and take the “T” or Uber in. See more Transit information above.
