Unlock the magic of Boston

Boston is one of the best cities in America and one of the finest cities in the world. Widely known for the bar from Cheers and The Boston Marathon there’s plenty more to Boston than meets the eye. Not only is it one of the healthiest cities in the US but it has a quality of life to match with a strong economy and plenty of family activities including The New England Aquarium and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. With over 20 institutes of higher learning in the Greater Boston area, including Harvard, MIT, and Tufts, Boston's old nickname as the Athens of America is still relevant.
