About the area:
Boston is not only a part of the historic past of the United States; it is also a booming metropolitan city with a large selection of things to do. Even though you may find yourself surrounded by skyscrapers and expressways, you will also be surrounded by the colonial and New England feel.
The city of Boston is made up of distinct neighborhoods including the sophisticated Back Bay area, which is just across the river from Cambridge, MIT and Harvard University. Boston's Financial District is close to the waterfront, North End and Boston's famous Public Gardens and Downtown crossing shopping. Visitors will also enjoy the Seaport and Fenway districts.
