Boston, Massachusetts

The city of Boston as evening falls holds a certain dusky attraction, it’s skyline an intriguing mixture of skyscrapers and apartments, business and home. Boston is more than just the capital of Massachusetts, it’s one of America’s oldest cities, with a rich and vibrant economic and social history. Boston was first consolidated as a town back in 1630, and as a city in 1822, what started out as a simple homesteading community gradually developed into a center for social and political change. Now Boston has become the thriving economic and cultural base of New England. As the region’s undisputed axis, Boston has an estimated 617,000 residents, a treasure trove of institutions of higher education, several of the world’s top most inpatient hospitals, and myriad cultural and professional sports organizations. Of the nearly 660,000 jobs found in Boston in 2002, these were mainly in the finance, educational, health care, and service areas. Millions of people visit Boston annually to view its historic neighborhoods, attend cultural or sporting events, and carry out business.

While many cities look to the business world for their identities, Boston is renowned for its array of dynamic neighborhoods. Truth be told, Boston’s essence, the inner core from which it derives its strength, variety and dynamic energy are its neighborhoods, where community pride and worldwide cultures are celebrated. Naturally, each neighborhood has its own personality and unique appeal, but all of the neighborhoods exhibit Boston’s constantly changing face, as this historic city has been transformed into a melting pot for people from all four corners of the globe. New immigrants have united with native Bostonians and those who have relocated from across the country to make Boston a first class city.

If you’re a history buff, you can opt either for a self-guided or a guided tour and walk the Freedom Trail, a 2.5 mile long path through downtown Boston, that passes by 16 locations which have been important to the history of the United States. It’s okay if history isn’t really you’re thing. You can always pay a visit to Faneuil Hall, or as it’s officially called, Faneuil Hall and Marketplace. Located by the waterfront, this is one of the nation’s premier urban marketplaces, filled with unique items to buy, excellent food, and non-stop entertainment that includes real, live street performers! Perhaps you’re a museum fan. Well then, you have the Museum of Fine Arts, filled with Impressionist art and Egyptian treasures, or the Museum of Science complete with interactive exhibits and an IMAX theater to hold your interest.

Still tramping about sightseeing, but starting to ponder that age old question, “Where are we going to eat tonight in Boston?” Well, never fear. If you happen to be near Harvard Square you can stop on by Alden & Harlow. This solo restaurant took possession of the iconic Casablanca space on Brattle St. and brought with it a delicious repertoire of shareable plates that include everything from chicken-fried rabbit and fried brussels sprouts to the new favorite secret burger. The seasonal cocktail list is rich with unusual selections. Order a “That’ll Do” — made with smoke pork infused scotch, absinthe, and Green Mountain Maple liqueur.
