Welcome to Dedham, Massachusetts—a town on the southwest border of Boston. First settled in 1636, Dedham is the site of America's first taxpayer-funded public school. With many other historical claims to fame and a large variety of easily accessible conservation land, there's a lot to see and learn in Dedham. Explore this fascinating region from your base at one of the many hotels in Dedham, MA.
Once you land at Logan International Airport (BOS), you can reach Dedham by taking either the Orange Line on the subway or the commuter rail's Needham Heights Line to Forest Hills. When you arrive in Forest Hills, switch to the number 35 bus. Ride the bus for about 25 minutes, and get off at the Dedham Mall in front of the Stop & Shop. Alternatively, take one of the blue and white shuttles from the lower level of your airport terminal to the rental car center, or hire a cab at the curb. After dropping off your bags at one of the Dedham hotels, stop by the museum at the Fairbanks House, the oldest confirmed timber-frame building still standing in North America. If this piques your interest, the Dedham Historical Society is a great place to learn more about the area. Later, head over to the Historic Dedham Square to check out some of the shops and restaurants (you'll find plenty of Italian fare here), as well as historic buildings such as the Norfolk County Courthouse. Don't forget that you're just around the corner from The Hub—Travelocity can help you find hotels near Boston to stay at after exploring the city.
