Can I walk from 177 Commonwealth to 110 Huntington (Marriott Copley Place)? On Mapquest, it appears that there is a freeway between the two addresses. Is there public transportation for that? Obviously, I need to get a map of Boston!

It's about 9 short blocks between the two points. The Mass Pike (I-90) is underground there, so you'll have no impediments.

Thanks for the quick reply. How about walking that route at night? Safer to take a taxi?

You'll find a lot of people walking there in the evening. I would walk it (and have, many times) up until 9:30 or a bit later. There are a lot of restaurants along most of the streets there (except on Commonwealth Ave) that will be open well after that. Much after 9:30, I might not walk it unless I was with someone else.

How long will you be in the city? We always bought multi-day T passes so we could hop on and off at will.

We will arrive in the city Tuesday late afternoon or evening
That gives us all day Wednesday and Thursday as well as Friday AM. I will be staying an extra day, so I will have all day W,T, F before heading to airport on Saturday AM.
Can you tell that I am getting excited about this trip? :)

As someone from the west coast who is used to driving always between two points, Boston is a city where most things are close enough together to walk or at least take the "T".
