Ever been to a wedding reception where you sip cocktails with penguins? We wanted our big day to be special to us in its own fun and quirky way, so we chose this favorite spot of ours (but please, no taking penguins home). Reception will also take place on the Harbor Terrace, a waterfront setting with beautiful ocean views.

Note: we will have a wedding shuttle bus transporting guests between the ceremony and reception locations. If you are driving over the ceremony, we do not recommend street parking (instead keep your car in a lot where you can leave it for several hours). See the following PDF for important information, including how to get there and where to park:

For the convenience of our out of town guests, we have reserved room blocks at discounted group rates in two hotels in the heart of the city that are close to the wedding events:

Seaport Boston Hotel
1 Seaport Lane, Boston, MA (map)

Located on the waterfront with beautiful city and harbor views. We recommend staying here if you would like to be conveniently next door to our wedding ceremony location.

Marriott Courtyard Downtown/Tremont
275 Tremont Street, Boston, MA (map)

Located in the heart of the downtown and perfect for exploring the city. Steps away from Public Gardens, Theatre District, Chinatown, as well as many historical sites and attractions.

If you would like to have some additional options to consider, here is a list of other Boston hotels that we have not reserved rooms for, but offer competitive rates

If you're coming from out of town, here are some general tips for getting around:

  • Don't rent a car. Confusing roads and lack of parking in the city may be less convenience than you bargained for. Boston has excellent public transportation, and cabs are everywhere.
  • Boston's robust public transportation system is called the T. There are 5 major lines for getting around the city: Red Line, Green Line, Blue Line, Orange Line, and Silver Line, all with stations all over the city. View the T subway map and learn more here.
  • If you don't want to take the T, cabbing from point-to-point around the city will typically be much less than the cost of renting a car and paying for parking garages.
  • Walking is oftentimes the best way to get around. Unlike some other major cities, Boston is actually very compact. Getting to where you want to go might only be a nice 20 minute walk away. We recommend using Google Maps to look up walking distances.

Boston is an incredibly interesting city to explore. Read our 'Things do to around Boston' blog post for guide for our suggestions of ways to experience Boston.
