We are coming to Boston in August to get our daughter settled into Harbor Point at UMass Boston for the 2006 school year. We will be relying on public transportation and will have to do lots of shopping for apt. goodies so we won't be paying shipping from the west coast. Where would be a great, convenient, and close to the T hotel? I know that UMass has its own T stop, but we are going to have lots of purchased goods to haul around. Maybe a taxi would be better??? The hotel needs to be near shopping, UMass etc. or any other great ideas??? Thanks for the advice. Clueless in California.
