Boston is one of the USA’s oldest cities, and one of its loveliest. It was founded in 1630, and the American Revolution began here in the 1770s.
Today, Boston is home to more than 100 colleges and universities, including Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The large student population ensures a vibrant nightlife and a plethora of budget eating and drinking establishments. Boston is a pleasant city for pedestrians; it also has an excellent metro system, the MBTA, which stops all over town.
