Hey, I'm going to be going to Boston the 15th of September with a friend to
attend a concert...

the concert's going to be in this city called Mansfield about 30mi. south of
Boston in what I believe would be the suburbs. After the concert, we're
going to have to walk for about 30min. to get back to our hotel room. I'm
assuming Boston is a fairly safe city, but I wanna be sure we'll be ok. Does
anybody have any idea what kind of city Mansfield is and if its safe to walk
around at night ?

thanks

sean

Hey Sean - I don't think you will have any trouble in Mansfield. It's really just a suburb area and quite a ways outside of Boston. I have been to several concerts there, and while I didn't walk around the area much, it seemed rather tame from what I could see. The Tweeter Center there is a decent outdoor facility, enjoy the show. Who are you going to see?

Hey Sean, if you guys need a ride let me know cause I live one town away from Mansfield. Also, depending on what time of the day the concert is, there is a commuter rail (train) from Mansfield to Boston. I think it may cost you 3.50 one way. If you want me to drive you, let me know how many people I have to take. If there is more than 4, it may be difficult.

In regards to Mansfield, the town is a bedroom community of commuters. It has the largest population per capita under the age of 18. There is no reason to carry a sidearm with you unless you have a fear of serious preppy kids. Many players from the New England Patriots live in that town.

What concert are you going to?

Mansfield is like the middle of the woods. hehe. I think it is very safe to say you will be just fine walking around there.

You could walk around there flashing 100's and probably be fine hehe.
