Boston Insider Tip:  Getting to Boston's Theaters

Boston's compact size means that if you're staying in central Boston, you can easily walk to the Theatre District theaters.

But if you're driving into the city for a performance, you will need a place to park. 

To find the closest garages, check out our suggestions for nearby parking.  There are also a few small lots near Washington Street.

For the easiest parking experience - "easiest" meaning you're not gridlocked in our 1-lane, 1-way streets around the Theatre District when all the shows end - park in the huge garage under Boston Common and walk a block or two to your theater.
