Boston, (#boston) If you’ve ever lived in or visited Boston, it may be one of your favorite places in the world. Ask a dozen people what they love about the city and its environs and you will likely get a dozen different answers. Boston is, if nothing else, quirky…where else can one find grown men quacking on duck boats? History abounds here, with no better teacher than a day or two spent ambling along The Freedom Trail. Speaking of teachers, the region boasts more than 50 colleges and universities, including Harvard and MIT. No visit is complete without a trip to Fenway Park even if the Red Sox are not in town, or the “Gahden,” home of the Bruins and Celtics. Boston has it all art, food, and nightlife of a big city, with the heart of a small town.
