Simply stated... Boston is one of America's great cities. The food, culture, and entertainment options are endless.
As of the time of this writing, Boston pro sports teams (Patriots, Celtics, Red Sox, Bruins) have won a combined 12 championships since 2000. Fenway Park is a must-visit for any baseball fan.
Massachusetts is world-famous for the seafood. Lobster rolls and Boston clam chowder top the charts.
The winters can get a little long (and brutal at times). This just makes the people soak up every day of summer. Sunny and warm days without getting intolerably hot.
Speaking of summers, Cape Cod is the destination-of-choice for summer time getaways. Charming towns, quaint restaurants, and relaxing beaches draw out the crowds in the summer.
At times glorious, and at other times tragic, much of America's origin story was written in Massachusetts. See the sites of the Boston Tea Party, Plymouth Rock, Salem Witch Trials, and the home of John Adams.
