Head of the Charles

Jump to last reply

I am going to the Head of the Charles Regatta this weekend. I'm staying with a friend who lives outside of Boston but has never been to the regatta. I think we will be taking Amtrak into Boston.

Any tips on:
1) getting from the station to the river
2) best viewing spots. I know some websites say the bridges are great, but I imagine they'd be very crowded. What time would we have to arrive to get a spot on a bridge?
3) Any other good viewing spots, or is anywhere along the river good? Will we be able to hear announcements anywhere along the course?
4) Are both days pretty much the same as far as the competition goes?
5) Any other advice?

Some people from my rowing club are taking part so I'll want to see their races. Do people pretty much come and go during the day so that it's possible to find a spot somewhere, at any time of the day, or is it necessary to just get there early and stay the course? I don't know yet what time their races are.

TIA.
