If you’re a history buff, a foodie, or a sports fan, you’ll feel right at home in Boston. Also known as Beantown, The Cradle of Liberty, and The Athens of America, Boston has an astounding wealth of culture and coolness to offer. Boston is the birthplace of the United States, dating back to 1620 – more than 150 years before the Declaration of Independence. Walk the famed Freedom Trail through the city streets and you’ll be tracing the very footsteps of American history. From the first American public school to Boston’s first church to important sites in America's fight for independence, Boston is a living history museum. You’ll have no trouble exploring all the city has to offer on foot, as Boston is one of the most walkable cities in the country.
Boston proper is a mecca for higher education. It is home to Harvard, MIT, Tufts, Boston University, Boston College, U-Mass Boston, Northeastern, Emerson, Wentworth, Berklee, Wheelock, Simmons, Suffolk, and other esteemed schools. It makes sense that with such a highly educated workforce, Boston has become a premier biotech hub. But the people of Boston do not limit themselves to left-brain living; the arts thrive in Boston as well. You’ll find more museums, libraries and symphonies per square mile in Boston than in most American cities. Sports fans can catch a Red Sox baseball game, see the Superbowl champion Patriots take on any of their exciting AFC-East opponents, get fired up at a Bruins barnburner hockey game, or cheer on the Celtics as they slam-dunk their way to victory. Often times there are multiple professional sports to choose from on the same night!
Boston’s food scene is not to be missed. Fresh seafood dishes are the star of the show (especially cod, fresh steamed lobster, lobster rolls, oysters on the half-shell and creamy chowder), but the North End offers multiple world-class Italian restaurants as well. You’ll find ambiance aplenty around the city, and dreamy harbor views at most places in the Seaport District. Food is more than just a meal in Boston – it’s an experience to be savored.
