Why We Love It
Boston, loved or hated by sports fans everywhere, is a walkable city proud of its American Revolution heritage. With notable icons and significant events like the Boston Massacre, the USS Constitution, Paul Revere, and the Freedom Trail, it's no wonder Bostonians hold so much pride. It's also made famous by Fenway Park, Boston cream pie, New England Clam Chowder, and Samuel Adams Beer.
