There is no better place to experience American History than Boston, the capital and largest city in Massachusetts. It’s a vestige of the American Revolution, and although it’s one of the country’s largest cities today, with a population of 645,966 people (a 4.6 percent increase in the past five years), it still retains the atmosphere of American ingenuity on which this country was founded.
In the past four centuries, Boston has grown from a fledgling colonial town to a premier tourist destination and place to live. It has a powerful economy full of tourism, banks and cultural opportunities, and it’s a great place to make a home — the average value of a house is $371,000, and the average monthly rent is $1,281.
Visit Boston to learn about our country’s past, and walk along Freedom Trail to get the full sense of everything our forefathers experienced. Many interesting artifacts and stories are contained in the city’s many art museums and historical churches, and everywhere you go has something new to offer you about American history and Boston culture.
Or, if you’re not a history buff, Boston still provides great entertainment and culture with a more modern twist. Once a great city for Off-Broadway productions, Boston is trying to revive its theater both with musical productions and other orchestral works. The city is also home to a popular punk-rock scene that adds to its modern image.
