About The Area

Built on the revolutionary ideas of America's founding fathers (Boston counts John Adams and Benjamin Franklin as its own), this historic city continues to revolutionize pathways in arts, medicine, education and politics. Nicknamed the "Hub of the Universe," it has come a long way since its Puritan roots. Really - from Prohibition to earning the title of America's Drunkest City (according to The Daily Beast) in less than 100 years is quite an achievement in itself.

The presence of educational powerhouses like MIT and Harvard hints toward the major influence higher education has on the city. A day can easily be spent admiring the scientific achievements of MIT in the university's interactive museum, or mingling with students within the ivy-covered walls of Harvard Yard.
