Welcome to Boston

Historic downtown Boston

“USETDA 2012: A revolution in scholarship – A commonwealth of knowledge” –
June 13-15, 2012
Quincy, Massachusetts – near downtown Boston.

Boston was founded in 1630 when a fleet of 11 ships carrying 700 people sailed from England to Massachusetts. The new settlement was named Boston after the town of Boston in England from which many of the settlers came. By 1631 the first sailing ship built in America was launched from Boston and soon the shipbuilding industry thrived as well as the whaling and fishing industries. The population in Boston continued to grow over the next hundred years from 4,000 in 1676 to 13,000 in 1730.

Boston is often called the “Cradle of American History” due in part to its role in the American Revolution. It was here, in 1773, that the Boston Tea Party occurred when colonists boarded the British East India Company ships and dumped the tea into Boston Harbor. This was a key event in the growth of the American Revolution. Parliament responded in 1774 with the Coercive Acts, which closed Boston’s commerce until the British East India Company had been repaid for the destroyed tea. Colonists in turn responded with additional acts of protest. The crisis escalated, and the American Revolutionary War began near Boston in 1775.

By the early 19th century, Boston’s population was 43,000 and large amounts of land was gained by land filling. During this time, in 1822, Boston officially became a city. The Boston Public Library, the oldest free library in the US was founded in 1852 and the first American subway, the “T,” opened in 1897.

By the mid-20th century, Boston’s economy declined. Late in the century, however, the city was revived thanks to finance, hi-tech industries and tourism. Today, Boston is one of the most popular visitor destinations in the world with history, culture, acclaimed restaurants, superb shopping and a variety of entertainment offerings.

Getting to Boston

Quincy Market

The Boston Marriott Quincy is located 12 miles from Logan International Airport (BOS) which is serviced by all of the major US airlines. Cab service from the airport is approximately $35 each way. For further information you may visit the airport website at: www.massport.com.

Planning Your Visit
Daytime temperatures average in the low 80s with moderate humidity while nights cool down to the mid 60s. A sweater or jacket may be needed in air-conditioned hotel meetingrooms. Workshop and Institute participants usually wear business casual clothing and find that relaxed, comfortable summer attire is appropriate for all of the sessions and meals. Casual clothing is acceptable for touring.

Things to do in Boston

Welcome to USETDA 2012

The USETDA Board of Directors and the Conference Organizing Committee welcome you to the USETDA 2012 Conference. We look forward to meeting everyone at the Boston Marriott Quincy for our 2nd annual conference. We have many exciting activities planned for USETDA 2012 delegates to make the most of their learning and sharing experiences at the conference as well as the many sight seeing opportunities in the Boston area. The conference program is now available online. Below we have listed some house-keeping notes to help delegates prepare for the USETDA Conference.

Arrival in Boston

Transport Options from Boston Logan Airport to Boston Marriott Quincy

The Boston Marriott Quincy Hotel does not provide shuttle service from the airport.

    • FOR GUESTS USING A GPS ENTER: 1200 Crown Colony Drive, Quincy, MA 02169 for the hotel address.
  • Transportation tips from Bostonians – LEAST EXPENSIVE OPTION!
    • There is now a free bus service (the “Silver Line”) from Logan airport to South Station — at which point, one can get on the “Red Line” to go to the Quincy Adams station, which is within a mile of the Quincy Marriott. Note that the “Red Line” forks into two branches (as you can see on the map below); you will need to be sure to get on a train that has the destination of “Braintree” (as opposed to “Ashmont”).
    • There is a Marriott hotel shuttle at the Quincy Adams station that can get you to the hotel — it runs regularly from the station through 6pm. After 6pm call the hotel to request pick up service — 617-472-1000 ext. 0. This would be the least expensive way to get from the airport to the hotel.
    • Alternatively, one could take the “Logan Express — Braintree” bus from Logan airport to Braintree which is about 2.5 miles from the hotel, and then take a taxi from there.
    • Cost of Logan Express bus: $22 (round trip).
