Directions to Boston Light & Sound: 290 North Beacon Street, Boston MA.
Note: North Beacon Street (U.S. 20) is a totally different road than Beacon Street. BL&S is located in the Brighton neighborhood.

 

A. From Downtown Boston (North End area) [NO TRUCKS]:

Take Storrow Drive Westbound. This road’s name changes to Soldiers Field Road, but just continue. After the IHOP restaurant (blue roof, on left), take first left (a U-turn) towards Brighton Center. Immediately bear right (not a sharp right) on Route 20 (Birmingham Parkway). Follow Route 20 right (opposite the rear of McDonald’s) onto North Beacon St. Once you come out from beneath the overpass, 290 is directly in front of you.

 

Tip: Storrow Drive/Soldiers Field Road can be confusing. When you first get on Storrow Drive, you go through a short left curving tunnel. Leaving the tunnel, stay to the right whenever possible until you have passed the "Kenmore Sq.-Fenway-Rt. 1 S " exit. From then on, stay to the left (signed "Newton") whenever possible until the road is no longer divided. Continue straight ahead; the IHOP (see above) is about ½ mile ahead.

 

B. From Downtown Boston (South Station area):

Take I-90 (Mass. Turnpike) Westbound. Get off at the first exit (#20, Brighton-Cambridge). After the toll booth, bear left (sign: Brighton) and you’ll go around a right-turning corkscrew. After about 1 mile, at the 5th traffic light, (fire station on left, "Twin Donuts" in front of you) turn right onto North Beacon Street. 290 is on your left, about 7/10 mile, just before you would go beneath an overpass.

 

C. From the West [NO TRUCKS]:

Take I-90 (Mass. Turnpike) Eastbound. Get off at Exit 17, the Newton-Watertown Exit (this is the first available exit after you pass I-95/Route 128). Continue straight ahead, then turn left just after the 4th traffic light (about 4/10 mi) onto St. James Street (this is also marked Charlesbank Road, and is just left of the entrance ramp to I-90 Eastbound). In 1/10 mile, at a yellow blinking light, make a sharp right turn onto Charlesbank Road, which then goes down a hill and merges onto Nonantum Road Eastbound. Continue on Nonantum until you pass a traffic light and enter an interchange where the road divides; a sort of traffic circle. The IHOP restaurant (blue roof) will be in front of you. Bear right (not a sharp right) on Route 20 (Birmingham Parkway) towards Brighton Center and North Beacon Street. Turn right (opposite the rear of McDonald’s) under an overpass onto North Beacon St. Once you come out from beneath the overpass, 290 is directly in front of you.

 

D. From the West:

Take I-90 (Mass. Turnpike) Eastbound. Get off at Exit 18, marked Brighton-Cambridge (this is a left exit). After the toll booth, bear left (sign: Brighton) and you’ll go around a right-turning corkscrew. After about 1 mile, at the 5th traffic light, (fire station on left, "Twin Donuts" in front of you) turn right onto North Beacon Street. 290 is on your left, about 7/10 mile, just before you would go beneath an overpass.

From the North [NO TRUCKS]:

Take I-93 south. After I-93 becomes elevated, the first right is the Storrow Drive exit. Proceed as in paragraph "A."

 

From the North:

Take I-93 south. From the tunnel below Boston exit onto I-90 (Mass. Turnpike) Westbound. Proceed as in paragraph "B."

 

From the South:

Take I-95 north. Take I-90 (Mass. Turnpike) East and proceed as in paragraph "C" or "D."
