If America doesn't 'do' history, then they should perhaps let Boston know. Boston, a popular USA multi-centre stop off, is the cultural hub on the east coast in Massachusetts and drenched with History. A particular tea party helped shape the present day United States of America. Grand claims have been made of Massachusetts’ capital of Boston throughout its history.
They are reflected in many of Boston’s nicknames: ‘Cradle of Modern America,’ ‘Hub of the Solar System’ and ‘Athens of America.’ However, in the beginning, when the settlement in Boston took root in 1624, it was simply called ‘Tri-mountain’, given its location beside three hills on the mouth of the Charles River. This was before Boston was named after the small English town in Lincolnshire, the original home of several founding Puritan families.
A big university town, Boston can be refreshingly highbrow, but it's also unpretentious. Its proud Irish and Italian communities are as huge a part of the city's make-up as its sports fanaticism or its artistic leanings. A short trip to Boston is truly an unforgettable experience, as Boston has so much to offer. Whatever you decide to do, we can help.
