Boston

Boston City

One of America's most historic cities is also among the most progressive

A leading intellectual and cultural hub, Boston has long been associated with a certain patrician snootiness, yet, thanks to the constant influx of young blood to its numerous universities, it is a centre for fresh ideas and cutting-edge arts. Although its charming old neighbourhoods are impeccably preserved, this is a modern and increasingly style-conscious city, proudly displaying the results of decades of intensive urban regeneration.
