Directions to John Chambers' home in Waltham (BLU Annual BBQ)


By car from the Mass Pike or 128/I95:

Take I-95 (128) to the US20 exit, which is the next exit north of the Mass Pike. Go one block east (towards Waltham) to the first light. Turn right, and go one block south. It's the pointy brown house on the far right corner.

By car via US 20 (from Watertown or Waltham)

Take 20 west through Waltham center. After about a mile, 20 will fork to the left. (Straight ahead is 117.) Follow 20 another half mile os so, up a long grade. You can't legally turn left on Cedarwood. Watch for a fork with a small sign saying Cedarwood and/or 117, pointing right. This is a small semi-rotary. Drive around it to the lights, go through the lights, and go one block. It's the pointy brown house on the far right corner. If you miss the sign for the rotary and find yourself at the interchange with I95/128, that's a rotary, too. Go around it and come back, and follow the previous set of directions.

By mass transit:

Take the Cedarwood bus (71), which starts at Central Square in Cambridge, and passes through Watertown Center. The west end of the line is at the light mentioned above.

From Brandeis:

If the commuter rail line that stops at Brandeis is convenient, you can get off there and walk across the campus to the Cedarwood neighborhood. There's a gate just left of the water tower, between the parking lot and the Historical Society building. From there, it's two blocks to Cedarwood, turn right, and then 2 blocks to our house. From the rail stop it is about a mile walk, mostly uphill, so I don't recommend it in bad weather.

From Natick, Sudbury, Maynard or other western suburbs:

Take state road 27 to US 20, which is around 5 miles north of the Mass Pike. Turn east, and go about 6 miles until you cross I-95 (128). Go to the next light, turn right, and go one block south. It's the pointy brown house on the far right corner.
