Greater Boston

 

If you’ve ever lived in Boston, it’s probably one of your favorite places in the world. It’s certainly one of the most unique. Ask ten people what they love about Boston and you’ll get ten different answers. Boston’s quirky; it’s the One Man Band guy playing oldies but goodies on Newbury Street and grown men quacking on duck boats. Boston’s historic: The Kennedy’s! The infamous Boston Tea Party! The Freedom Trail! Boston is sports paradise: if you want to eat, sleep, and breathe sports (warning: it smells like Fenway Franks), this is the place to do it. And of course, Boston’s wicked smart; there are over 50 colleges & universities in the Greater Boston area, including Harvard and MIT. It has the art, food, and nightlife of a big city, with the friendliness and heart of a small town. Boston is one of a kind – just ask that One Man Band guy.
