Transportation
Types of Transportation Available to Campus:
Logan International Airport in Boston and Green State Airport in Providence, RI, are 45 minutes from campus. To get to campus from Logan, take a Peter Pan bus to Foxfield Plaza in Foxboro and a taxi from the plaza to Wheaton. The Peter Pan bus leaves hourly on the half hour from most terminals; call Peter Pan at 800-556-3815 for bus information. Peter Pan buses also run from downtown Providence to Foxboro. Taxis and rental cars are available at both airports. Amtrak provides rail service to Boston and Providence. From Boston's South Station, an MBTA commuter rail serves Mansfield and Attleboro, which are towns near campus; take a taxi from either town to Wheaton.
 
Driving Instructions to Campus:
From the west, take I-90 (Massachusetts Tpke.)to Exit 11A; then take I-495 S. Follow I-495 to Exit 11. From Boston and northern New England, take I-93 S.(the Southeast Expressway) to I-93 S./128N. Continue to the junction with I-95S. to Exit 6A to I-495 S. At Exit 11 from I-495, turn onto MA Route 123W., and follow that for a mile and a half to the college. From Providence and southern New England, take I-95 N. to Exit 6A; then take I-495 S. to Exit 11 and Massachusetts Rte. 123 W. Follow Rte. 123 for a mile and a half to the college.
 
Local Accommodations: Near By:
Our first choice for charm is the Colonel Blackinton Inn (203 N. Main St. [Rte. 152], Attleboro; 508-222-6022), 6 miles from campus. This 19th-century inn is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has an informal country atmosphere. Continental breakfast and afternoon tea are included in the moderate price. The Holiday Inn (700 Myles Standish Blvd., Taunton; 508-823-0430) is only 10 minutes away and has a health club, and a restaurant. Rates vary between the inexpensive and moderate ranges. Red Roof Inn (60 Forbes Blvd., Mansfield; 508-339-2323) has inexpensive to moderate rates and is a 15-minute drive away. For an indoor pool and a health club, try the Holiday Inn (31 Hampshire St., Mansfield; 508-339-2200). Rates begin at the top end of the moderate range and go into the expensive range. Courtyard Marriott (35 Foxboro Boulevard, Foxboro; 508-543-5222). The Courtyard is a very pleasant business-oriented hotel close to restaurants in the Norton/Foxboro/Mansfield area.
 
Local Accommodations: Far Away:
Providence, RI, is less than half an hour to the south. See the Brown University entry for suggestions there.
