As one of the oldest settlements
in the USA and the largest city in New England,
Boston has plenty of historic culture. Yet with
over 50 colleges and universities situated in
the greater Boston area there is a youthful vibrancy
that adds a different dimension to the historic
charm of the city.
Cambridge lies across
the Charles River and is the largest college town
in the world, synonymous with Harvard University
founded in 1638. The neat ivy-covered brick buildings
of the university grounds, as well as the labyrinth
of twisting streets in Boston centre and the historical
buildings in the old-world neighbourhoods are
best explored on foot.
Boston refers to itself
as the ‘Walking City’ and is a remarkably
compact city that is centred on the country’s
oldest public park, Boston Common. The Information
Centre in Boston Common is the starting point
for two of the city’s main attractions,
which are in fact walking tours.
The Freedom Trail explores
the city’s revolutionary past and the birth
of the modern American Republic, while the Black
Heritage Trail highlights Boston’s place
in black American history and its role in anti-slavery.
