When getting there is half the fun!

The long-awaited opening of the Encore Boston Harbor, a luxury resort & casino, is finally here. On June 23rd, the casino opened its doors to the public; offering a multitude of amenities such as 15 different restaurants & bars, a spa, fitness center, 3,158 slot machines and more.


Open all day, every day, the Encore attracts visitors from all areas of the state and beyond. Despite the large crowds, getting to the casino has been made simple thanks to the many modes of available transportation.
