US 20 in Massachusetts: In The Beginning

Sign at US 20 Eastern Terminus (left)
US Route 20 begins its long journey westward in Boston Massachusetts in Kenmore Square. It joins up with Massachusetts Route 2, and parallels I-90.

What is Kenmore Square? It’s a busy, bustling convergence of three main roadways - Commonwealth Avenue, Beacon Street, and Brookline Avenue, mixed with a heavy dose of shops, restaurants, hotels, clubs, and educational institutions. Boston University is only a block away. Also very close by is Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox. It is also part of the last leg of the annual Boston Marathon.

It sounds like a fitting place for the country’s longest road to start!
