THE SITE
The Roundtable will be held at Simmons College,

The campus is close to Fenway Park (for baseball fans) and downtown is easily accessed using the "T", Boston's metro for $2.00.

Parking & Travel:
Simmons College can offer some discount parking at $12/day for those with cars (an absolute steal for parking in Boston). The college is readily accessible on the "T", Boston's metro. The fare is $2 one-way.
Travel from Logan Airport is also possible via the T for $2 (or taxi, for about $35-$40).
There is also train and road access on major highways and we will place related information on the Roundtable website.
