Boston in the subburbs and taking the "T" into Kendal Square via one
of the surburban trains. I've visited Boston many times; the trains
run regularly and fairly late; they are not terribly expensive. Also
they save driving in and out of Cambridge and other places. I consider
the T as fun, they seem clean enough...
Seems to me, if you plan driving to RI anyway, stay well south of
Boston and just take the T in and around Boston for those events. Or
carpool. There are some Motel 6's south of Boston, prices in the
mid-$70's. Spend the difference in $$$ on food.
If I go, I'd drive up and stay with relatives nearby. But I just got
back from a week in NH/VT and if I go to the MIT flea market, I'd go
to sell so I'd do it in Sept/Oct when there is more activity (i.e.
students). It's unlikely I'll make this August trip.
Also, the weather has been hot as hell lately. Will it get better two
weeks from now? LEt's check weather.com for Boston...the ten-day is
highs from low to mid-80's at 60% humidity and sunny. Sounds kinda
hot, in the wrong way...
