Spring has finally come to Boston which can only mean that it’s time for the Boston Marathon! An annual event since 1897, the Marathon attracts runners from all over the world, and we’ve had the opportunity to host many of these athletes over the years at our Boston bed and breakfast. Beginning in Hopkinton, the course travels over 26 miles of Greater Boston, passing through Ashland, Framingham, Natick, Wellesley, Newton, and Brookline, before reaching the finish line in Copley Square.
The 2013 Boston Marathon will be held on Monday, April 15, known as Patriots’ Day in Massachusetts. Though the holiday was initially created to commemorate the Battles of Lexington and Concord, the first military engagements of the Revolutionary War, it has become known colloquially as “Marathon Monday” due to the fact that the Marathon is run on this day each year. With the coming of spring in beautiful Boston and Brookline, this is the perfect time to visit our city.
Our two hotels in Brookline are located right on the Marathon route on Beacon Street at approximately the 23- and 24-mile markers, giving you some of the best front row seats to the action! Whether you’re here as a runner or just to cheer from the sidelines, the Beacon Inn is the perfect place to stay when visiting Boston for the Marathon. Time is running out so call us at 617-566-0088 to book your room today!
