Alewife

Alewife marks the end of the Red Line (with a huge commuter parking garage) and the beginning of a more car-dominated landscape. Still, the 77 bus runs right by the neighborhoods, as does the Minuteman Bike Trail. Close to Russell Field and a community pool, the Alewife area is about as far away as one can get from Boston while still maintaining easy accessibility to any destination on the Red Line. Close to family restaurants like Bertucci’s and the Summer Shack. Though walking distance to both huge companies and blocks of quiet residences, Alewife is a great area for car-commuters who want to linger on the cusp of the city while maintaining easy access to the great beyond-Boston.
