A city of history and tradition, Boston offers a proud legacy of culture, education, and numerous sporting championships.
No American city has made more of an effort to preserve its history, and you'll find buildings that pre-date the republic dotted throughout the region.
But Boston isn't a city to dwell on the past: it has renovated and revitalized, in the process shedding its once deservedly parochial reputation.
Its plethora of museums, historical sights, and wealth of live performances, all explain why the city gets 16.3 million visitors a year, making it one of the ten most popular tourist locations in the country.
