First Heat starts:
Parking has become increasingly difficult in the area, with all parking lots giving in to become skyscrapers.
There are two reasonable parking options within a 10 minute walk and cost $5 on the weekends.
Both options give great access to the Gillette dock which is a prime spot to witness the turns on the race course:
[wpcol_1half id=”” class=”” style=””]Channelside Parking 284 A Street, Boston, MA 02127
[/wpcol_1half] [wpcol_1half_end id=”” class=”” style=””]Necco st. Garage 38 Necco St, Boston, MA 02210[/wpcol_1half_end]
There are other parking options nearby but the cheapest lot will cost you $18 and there are may also be meters along the main streets.
Public transportation is the best choice for those who can take it. We are a 7 minute walk from South Station on the red line.
