Boston, the capital and largest city in Massachusetts, and one of the oldest cities in the United States, is the economic and cultural center of New England. The city proper has a population over 600 thousands, and anchors the larger metropolitan area of Greater Boston with a population over 4 million people.

Puritan colonists from England founded the city in 1630. During the American Revolution Boston was the scene of several historic events, including the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, the Battle of Bunker Hill,and the battles of Lexington and Concord. With land reclamation, Boston expanded beyond Beacon Hill and the Shawmut peninsula, to build the classic mid-19th century residential neighborhood known as Back Bay.

After independence, Boston became a major port and manufacturing center. The city is the site of several firsts, including America's first public school - Boston Latin School, the first college - Harvard College, in neighboring Cambridge, and the first subway system in the United States.

Boston is a center of higher education With many colleges and universities in the city and surrounding area, and a center for medicine, with renown hospitals, medical schools and biotechnology companies. Boston is home to many cultural institutions, including Symphony Hall & the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum, the mother church of Christian Science, the iconic Richardson Romanesque Trinity Church, and of course the Red Sox, and the Public Garden's beloved Swan Boats.
