    About Boston

    Boston may be the most historic city in America – a significant player in American history for more than 300 years. Boston was founded in 1630, nearly 150 years before the colonies formed a new nation, and has been the site of many significant historic events, such as the Boston Tea Party and Paul Revere's ride. The capital of the state of Massachusetts, Boston is now a thriving metropolis, but it has retained its historic landmarks and its charm. Boston sites and landmarks include the Massachusetts State House, Paul Revere House, Bunker Hill Monument, numerous museums, galleries, and gardens, and of course, Fenway Park – home of the Boston Red Sox.
