Braintree Overview

A municipality south of Boston, Braintree is favored by commuters into the city because of easy transport links by rail, subway or the highway. Traffic can be an issue on I-93 at the infamous Braintree Split where other highways merge in. Access to Logan Airport is also easy via shuttles or driving.

The town is split between residential, light industrial and commercial. There aren't a whole lot of tourist activities but there is plenty of shopping at South Shore plaza and good food nearby. The prices of lodging tend to be high so it may not be worth the cost if you're touring Boston but it is an option because the transit to and from the city is easy.
