Nearby, the bustling financial district, Government Center and theatre district offers endless options for dining and entertainment.

Local attractions: The attractions around the centre of Boston are situated in the downtown neighbourhood or along the waterfront.

This area is home to the Museum of Fine Arts and Fenway Park Stadium. It is 20 minutes by subway from the school.
