Originally established in 1630, Boston is where old charm meets contemporary style and sophistication. At one time the city occupied a narrow peninsula of land, restricting city expansion, but extensive filling of tidal flats has greatly increased the city’s land area. Today, Boston dominates much of New England and exerts influence on the rest of the country through its financial and educational institutions.
Known as America’s college town, Boston claims many of the world’s esteemed colleges and universities. Cambridge is often referred to as Boston’s “Left Bank”. It is the birthplace of higher education in America – Harvard College was founded here in 1636.
