The epicenter of American history and cultural hub of New England, Boston is also a delightful seaside city with endless amounts of charm. What makes Boston special is not its abundance of wealth or political influence, but its never-ending passion for learning and advancement. After all, this is the birthplace of the American Revolution.
One of America’s original cities, Boston’s been a hub for longer than the United States has been a country. Its role in the American Revolution and subsequent presence in the early development of the United States has forever engrained it as one of America’s great cities. But don’t think it’s all cobbled streets and brick buildings; Boston’s a modern city with respect for its past, and an eye on the future.
Founded way back in 1630, and playing host to some of America’s most historical events (Paul Revere’s Midnight Ride, and of course the Boston Massacre and Boston Tea Party), Boston is rich with history. It’s also been a haven for immigrants from all over the world, all of whom have left an indelible international mark.
All of the art, culture, and history is bound to make you work up an appetite, and Boston delivers culinary goodness in spades. From iconic seafood dishes to modern American gastropubs, Boston’s no newcomer to being a gastronomic heavyweight. And with all of the international influences around the city, you’ll have no problem being able to find international delights aplenty. When you’re all finished with your day, Boston has an amazing post-sunset scene with everything from moodily-lit cocktail spots to jaw-slackening live performances—and definitely a few clubs. However you take your nighttime, Boston can deliver.
After all these years, Boston’s still got it! From its seafaring past to its cutting-edge present, it’s a place where historical significance juxtaposes with forward thinking. From the cobbled streets and brownstone architecture to the delicious cuisine and stunning arts scene, Boston has more than a few things to offer. It’s not hard to see why this city is still one of the greats.
