Transportation

Gray Manor will be held at 1950 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, MA 02140 at the Cambridge Masonic Temple. This location is ideal as it is near to a number of different transportation options, including the Boston subway system. The Porter Square station is a major hub that is located near to the exciting Davis and Harvard Square areas, which have a variety of dining options, refreshments, and social areas.

The Logan International Airport serves Boston's flight based needs, as well as the Manchester NH Airport, and both are close enough to be used for any travel in. If traveling from Logan, Cambridge is easy to get into via taxi, ride hailing services such as Lyft or Uber, and via the subway system.

Cambridge is a very walkable city, and rental bikes are also available!
