"HOME OF BOSTON UNIVERSITY" Top 5 Page for this destination Commonwealth Avenue Tip by moiraistyx

Commonwealth Avenue, Boston: 7 reviews and 12 photos

One great thing about Boston is that it's colleges are very easy to find. My alma mater, Boston University, was right on Commonwealth Ave. It is a street with a weird set up. It starts off heading in one direction then curves off into another then crosses over Beacon Street and goes back in the direciton it started.

You can find all sorts of shops and nice eateries along Commonwealth Ave. It is also very easy to get from point A to point B because the B line runs up it.

Get off at Kenmore Square and stop into the BU bookstore. Here you can buy just about any kind of Boston University souvenire you could want.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
