You CAN Get There from Here: Take the T from The Kensington
Wondering which of Boston’s main subway lines are convenient to The Kensington? Try all of them.
Look at the MBTA map of the city, and you’ll see that The Kensington is right in the center of it all. It’s no wonder our accessible-to-anywhere location earned us a perfect score of 100 (“Walker’s Paradise”) from Walk Score.
Here’s the lowdown on the nearest stations and where they’ll lead you.
The Red Line stretches from Alewife in Cambridge to Ashmont and Braintree to the south of the city. Check out Davis Square — Somerville’s hippest neighborhood — for great shops and restaurants. Closest stop: Park Street Station.
Maybe you’ve seen the charming movie, Next Stop, Wonderland. The Blue Line runs from Bowdoin in the Government Center area downtown to Wonderland, the Revere station made famous in the film. Take this line to Revere Beach for a day of white sand and surf. Closest stop: Government Center.
The Orange Line takes you from Oak Grove in Malden (north of the city) down into Jamaica Plain, a Boston neighborhood. Head to Forest Hills station and enjoy a picnic under the trees at the Arnold Arboretum, or grab dinner at one of the trendy Jamaica Plan restaurants. Closest stop: Downtown Crossing.
The newest addition to the MBTA takes you straight to Logan Airport without switching lines. Step on the sleek new trains and catch your flight with ease, or head to the chic restaurants of Boston’s Seaport District. The Silver Line also runs through the South End to Roxbury’s Dudley Square. Closest stop: Downtown Crossing.
The Green Line — which earned its name because it runs through Boston’s “Emerald Necklace” chain of parks — spiders out in different directions starting at the Kenmore stop. Be sure not to hop on the wrong train if you’re heading westbound! The B, C, D and E lines will take you to some of the city’s major colleges, Fenway Park or an afternoon of shopping and dining in lovely Newton Center. Closest stop: Boylston Street.
We love exploring the city by T, and our proximity to every subway line is one of many perks The Kensington residents rave about. See schedule information at the MBTA website, and be sure to pick up a Charlie Card for discounted fares.
