Description
"Welcome to Boston, a city on the cusp of its 400th birthday in 2030. While boldly looking forward to its future as the “new” Boston, it still warmly embraces its past—after all, this is the birthplace of the United States. Lace up a pair of comfortable shoes, grab a coffee, and meander the Freedom Trail to take in all 16 sites that commemorate the transformation of a rebellious group of colonies into a thriving global superpower. History and higher education are Boston’s backbone. The New England city’s collegiate charm brings thousands of students to leafy campuses (and urban ones) around the metro area each fall. They are increasingly joined by a surge of new arrivals seeking employment in the region’s booming technology and health-care industries. James Beard Award-winning restaurants seem to pop up on every cobblestoned corner. Bostonians flock downtown throughout the year for beer gardens, piping hot “lobstah” rolls, food trucks, and summer concerts in the same spot that once housed never-ending traffic. Despite its progressive vision of the future, Boston wants you to remember where it came from. From the snowy, gaslit streets of Beacon Hill to the Italian Renaissance architecture of Copley Square—and even its glassy skyline on the rise—Boston is a walk through history."--publisher's website.
