Boston is home to the young and the smart

Whether you are a history buff or someone who likes to stay active, the city has an endless list of activities for you to enjoy. Head to the historic Italian district, the North End to visit the Paul Revere house or take in the views as you run down the Charles River. Boston can easily be explored by foot or by The T, the country’s oldest accessible subway system. Take a stroll through the Public Garden, part of an 1,100-acre chain of beautiful parks and waterways called the Emerald Necklace. You can find local produce year-round at Haymarket or other neighborhood farmer’s markets. Every season in Boston has something to offer. Ice skate on the Frog Pond in Boston Common during the winter and enjoy the many outdoor festivals, movies in the park and live music events throughout the warm summer months.
