Boston is one of America's oldest cities, originally incorporated in
1630. It is home to nearly 600,000 residents and a wealth of
culture and history. Faneuil Hall, also known as Quincy Market,
embodies this fascinating blend of history and modernity with its cafes
and shops ensconced in a building that has served as a community market
for over 250 years. Boston's significant role in the American
Revolution is highlighted along the Freedom Trail, which encompasses
sixteen historical sites. Other attractions range from the Museum
of Fine Arts to the New England Aquarium. Berklee School of Music
and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), just two of many
colleges within Boston, further exemplify this city's diverse makeup.
For visitors, the Boston Duck Tours offer a fun and unique way to
experience the city. Major national sports are represented here, as
well. In addition to the Red Sox at Fenway Park, whose fan
following is legendary, the city is home to the NHL's Bruins, the Celtics
in the NBA, and the NFL's New England Patriots. At the center of
the excitement, Boston Common provides a serene respite with green lawns,
ball fields, a children's water play area, and, in winter months, the
popular Frog Pond ice-skating rink.
