Encore Boston Harbor

A new Orange Line train travels over the Mystic River, with the Encore casino in the background, boats and water in the foreground, a reflection of the train in the water.

Set to the backdrop of the beautiful Boston Harbor, Encore resort and casino offers luxury accommodations and vibrant nightlife. And while this area of the city sees its fair share of travelers, there are plenty of transportation options from the T and Encore to help you get where you're going—without all the traffic.
