Steeped in history, rich in culture, and brimming with energy and diversity, Boston dishes up both vintage and newfangled charm. Historical landmarks dating to the first English settlers in 1630 stand alongside modern buildings of glass and steel. Immigrants helped build and still enrich Boston’s many neighborhoods while students at its world-class universities infuse the city with zest, creativity, and talent. Superb local ingredients, like seafood from icy New England waters, form the backbone of many restaurant menus. Add a serious beer scene, hip cocktail bars, and a bounty of cafes, and there’s no shortage of fuel to power a spin through Boston — a city brimming with superb museums, stellar sports teams, and super friendly locals.
