Accommodations and Attractions

Women eating lunch in Boston

One of the great things about Simmons is its Boston location. There's probably no better city in the world to be a student. Boston has fascinating historical sites, first-rate cultural institutions, and excellent shopping and restaurants, not to mention more than 300,000 other students. It's a great place to browse in bookstores, wander through galleries, catch a concert, or just hang out and people-watch. Be sure to save some time on your visit to see the sights.


Note: Hotels fill up early, especially in the fall, so make reservations well in advance.
