For those of you driving, we recommend that you drive to ALEWIFE station in nearby Cambridge, located at the intersections of Routes 2 and 16, and park in the spacious, safe, and cheap garage located above the station.  Then, all you have to do is catch any train just ONE STOP to DAVIS station and you’ll be here, quick and easy!
