Boston, a City Rich in Culture, History and Opportunity
Boston goes by many names—The Hub, the Cradle of Liberty, the Athens of America, the Capital of New England. To most of the world, it’s the birthplace of the American Revolution and the home of everyone from Paul Revere and John Adams, to Robert Frost and the Kennedy family. In other words, Boston is one of most historically rich cities in the country.
For more than 600,000 people in the city proper, however, it’s simply home, a culturally vibrant city of opportunity that’s as diverse as it is modern. Known for its abundance of world-class colleges and universities and its pioneering hospitals and biotechnology, Boston draws people from all over the world, creating a mix of languages, styles, and cultures in a dynamic atmosphere of change and opportunity. With its abundant parks and open spaces, like the Olmsted-designed Emerald Necklace and vast Arnold Arboretum, its easy access to the recreation spots of Vermont and New Hampshire, and its beautiful area beaches, Boston offers a user-friendly urban experience balanced against New England’s breathtaking natural beauty.
