Boston Escorts Travel Guide, Massachusetts Travel Companion
New England’s largest city by far is widely know as the Hub- a name bestowed by Oliver Wendell Holmes, who wrote about chauvinistic turn-of the-century Bostonians who
Considered their city, ‘The Hub of the Universe.’ The oldest major US city, founded in 1630, Boston still has a blue-blooded Yankee establishment, but it’s matched by a feisty Irish one, and ethnic diversity is prevalent.
The city center’s compact size surprises visitors expecting “Americanized urban sprawl”, and then discovering that they can get nearly everywhere on foot. Walking the Freedom Trail is a good introduction to historic Boston, and a trip out to Lexington and Concord provides a vivid lesson in what sparked the America Revolution.
Learning and culture rank high in this ‘Athens of the America’ (another often-used, lofty title), where the nation’s first public elementary school was established in 1636.
Today the metro area is energized by its student population, some 250,000 strong, attending more than 60 colleges and universities. Harvard and almost-as famous Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) are across the Charles River in Cambridge, part of Boston and yet separate, the city’s ‘Left Bank’.
