About Boston Massachusetts

Boston Massachusetts

As one of the oldest cities in the US, you can rest assured that Boston is crammed with historical sites and antique attractions. Not only is Boston the capital of the states of Massachusetts, but it’s also the largest city in New England and one of the wealthiest and most prominent cities in the States. You shouldn’t assume that’s all it has to offer for all of the New England city’s olden day charm. Boston is also home to a thriving business community and a fertile breeding ground for many cultural outpourings, meaning there are arts and entertainment to suit all tastes in Boston. The city is packed with popular colleges and universities too, and the student scene ensures plenty of activities suited to young adults and older generations. What’s more, as Boston subsumed several neighboring towns during its journey to the metropolis it is today, it has several very distinct and diverse areas and regions. This makes it easy for travelers to enjoy many different experiences on their trip to Boston, ensuring they can experience a range of cultural identities and vibes.

 

Several districts can prove perfect for visitors to the city. For example, theatre-goers are sure to want to pay a visit to Boston’s theatre district while the Waterfront District is certain to appeal to those who want to enjoy some gentle boasting. Of course, a trip to Boston without checking out some of its museums and galleries is like apple pie without the cream and travelers will have the chance to sink their teeth into establishments such as Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, the Harvard Museum of Natural History and the MIT Museum. If you’re planning on visiting a few, you may find that a Go Boston Card could save you cash. If you want to see a different side to Boston, then a ferry out to Georges Island to take a tour of Fort Warren or enjoy ranger-led activities or the chance to swim and picnic in a scenic spot, there are also some great tours to help you explore Boston proper, and this can be an excellent way to make sure you don’t miss out on any of Boston’s famous sights.

 

Boston is a beautiful place; such a lovely city and it has some great architecture but did you know that a lot of the buildings in Boston are stood in a landfill? It is reported that the Commons House was built on an incredible Four million bales of cotton; because there was so much cotton produced in the year it was built, the architects decided to fill the land with cotton because it was so much cheaper than the materials they used to fill it with at the time; that is definitely what I call ‘Recycling’! If you have had the pleasure of visiting the lovely city of Boston before, you may have seen some lovely Boston Terriers around; this lovely breed of dog was the first purebred dog to be developed in America in the late nineteenth century.

 

The Boston terrier is a cross between an English bulldog and an English terrier, and it was not recognized as a breed of its own until the later part of the Twentieth Century, and while I’m on the subject; at one point it was illegal for any citizen of Boston to own more than three dogs! Boston, Massachusetts has been on the radar of many Americans since it first made waves in the colonial area of the United States. Throughout the years, the city has been a hub for culture, sports, and historical influence; we feel it’s always great to know a little bit about the places you live in or are going to visit soon.
