Boston is a truly exceptional place to live with something to offer for all. The city is distinguished by its proud, vibrant and unique neighborhoods, each with its own individual flair and character. More than 11 million annual visitors and residents frequent Newbury Street, Copley Place and the Prudential Center for shopping. With 37 sports titles, Boston is known as “The City of Champions.” There are miles of pathways for exercise and leisure along the Charles River and Jamaica Way. Nearby athletic options include cross-country skiing or golfing at Franklin Park, hiking at the Blue Hills Reservation and sailing and swimming at 20 regional beaches.
Boston’s diverse restaurants serve up everything from Ethiopian to Japanese to Colombian cuisines. Hundreds of food trucks operate day and night across the city. Almost 30 neighborhood farmers markets are sprinkled throughout the city.
While Boston is perhaps best known for its rich history, it is also full of true arts and culture gems, like the Institute of Contemporary Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Opera House and Boston Creates, which rotates public art displays and soundscapes along the mile-and-a-half long Rose Kennedy Greenway. The city also comes alive during each season with different festivals, concerts, markets and crafts fairs.
Beyond all the great experiences Boston offers residents, Massachusetts is consistently ranked among the top places in the country to raise a family. The years in residency can be as formidable personally as they are professionally, and many current and former Mass General residents have started their own families during their time here.
