TWEETER CENTER BY PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

The Tweeter Center is a 14,000 seat amphitheater located about half an hour south of Boston in Mansfield, MA. Getting there by car is easy; just hop on the Pike to I-95 south to exit 7A. Be sure not to take a wrong turn onto I-93, and be prepared to sit in the parking lot for an hour after the show to wait for traffic to clear.

Getting there without a car is a bit more tricky, but not impossible. From South Station, take the commuter rail (Attleboro/Stoughton line, $8 round trip) to Mansfield. For a 7:00 show, a 6:00 train is perfect. From the Mansfield station, a cab ride to Tweeter costs $12, which can be split with other concert-goers waiting in the station’s parking lot. After the show, head to the Cumberland Farms gas station just down the street from Tweeter to catch a cab back to the station. The last train to Boston departs Mansfield at 11:55, so waiting for a ride can be rather nerve-wracking. Last time, I made it to the station a leisurely three minutes before the train arrived.
