SBL: Sites Within Walking Distance of Hynes

Yesterday during our worship gathering, I was talking to a gentleman who just so happens to be from Boston. I told him that I was going there for four or five days to a conference and he proceeded to tell me about all sorts of things in the area. Eventually, he just wrote up a short list of great places to visit that are within walking distance of the Hynes center. Here's the list:

1. Fenway Park
2. Public Garden & Boston Commons
3. John Hancock Building
4. Prudential Center (revolving restaurant)
5. Christian Science Church World Headquarters
6. Trinity Church / Copley Square
7. Fanuel Hall
8. Old North Church (Think "Paul Revere")
9. Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum (arts)

Within a short driving distance, he noted that one could also visit MIT as well as Harvard Square / University.

Just thought I'd pass the information along. By the way, I know that SBL is incredibly fast-paced and that from sun up to sun down there's always something going on. But if anyone has some spare time and would like to hang out, I'm up for it. I like being around people, so, drop me an note via the comments section here or email.


  1. Additionally, the transit system has extensive coverage. For instance, Harvard square is a straight shot bus ride from the convention center (the number 1 bus), leaving every few minutes.

  2. Michael,
