Boston, a Center of intellectual, Cultural and Political Life
Home to scores of colleges and universities, more than 100,000 students provide fuel for one of the world’s great intellectual capitals. The city is full of delicious restaurants, beautiful parks, world-class museums, and cutting-edge music and theater. Bostonians also take pride in their professional sports teams: the Celtics, the Patriots, the Bruins and the Red Sox.
Boston has a terrific public transportation system, the “T”, which includes the Charles/MGH stop right at MGH’s doorstep. The beaches of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket are an easy drive, and the hiking and ski trails of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and Massachusetts’ Berkshire Valley invite quick weekend getaways.
Whether you choose to live amidst the charm of historic Beacon Hill or Boston’s Back Bay, its vibrant South End, nearby Cambridge, Brookline, or Jamaica Plain, the atmosphere is full of opportunity to easily relax or play hard.
