Boston is a major sports town. It's hard to live in the Boston area and not check out a game: Red Sox baseball | Celtics basketball | Patriots football | Bruins hockey | New England Revolution soccer. Also the Boston Marathon; one of the greatest traditions on campus is the Wellesley "Scream Tunnel" the halfway point for the runners, alongside the Wellesley campus.
Transportation to Boston and Cambridge
The Senate Bus or MIT Exchange Bus will easily get you in and out of the city from the Wellesley College campus. Don't worry, you won't be stranded when you get there. The Boston public transportation system, also known as the T, will take you anywhere you need to go. See also Five Ways into Boston.
