How to Get to Boskone
By Car The Sheraton Framingham is on Route 9 west at the Framingham exit (exit 12) of the Mass Pike (Interstate 90), about halfway between I-495 and Route 128 (I-95). The hotel is a castle (you can't miss it! trust us!), clearly visible from both the Pike and Route 9. Take the Mass Pike to Exit 12 (Framingham) and bear left after the tolls onto Route 9 west. Drive 150 yards to the Sheraton on the right. Parking is free!
By Air if you fly into Boston's Logan Airport: from any terminal
at Logan take the Logan Express to Framingham. (There are Logan
Express buses to other destinations, so be sure you get on the right
one.) It costs $9 one-way ($16 round trip); accompanied children
under 12 are free; you pay at the Framingham end. The ride takes
about 30-45 minutes. It leaves the airport every half-hour during
peak travel; the Saturday schedule is hourly. The last bus leaves the
airport at midnight. For information, phone (800) 23LOGAN at
any time for details, or see
