WHERE WE ARE
Boston Home to more people than any other city in New England, Boston is a patchwork of distinct neighborhoods renowned for their art and history museums, guided tours of historic streets, public parks, and bustling arts and theater district. Few places in the nation have so many top-rated hospitals and doctors within city limits. Boston also has other advantages— easily reached by the Northeast Corridor on Amtrak, the city offers several transit options, including subway lines and commuter trains serving much of the region. Bostonians can enjoy weekend getaways to Cape Cod and the South Shore, or travel out of state to Newport, Rhode Island, and Maine.
WHERE WE ARE
Cambridge Anchored to the banks of the Charles River by Harvard University and M.I.T., Cambridge blends its intellectual character with a rich serving of arts and culture. The city is certainly known for its highbrow academic pursuits—it has developed into a life sciences and tech mecca in recent decades—but it also boasts its fair share of world-class museums, a thriving music and arts scene, quirky boutiques, and notable restaurants. Although just moments away from Boston, this historic city has a persona all its own. Browse through bookstores in Harvard Square by day, and savor virtually every kind of cuisine by night.
WHERE WE ARE
Greater Boston The most populated region in New England, Greater Boston encompasses 43 cities and towns in the eastern portion of the state of Massachusetts, bounded approximately by the I-95 beltway (or Route 128 to some locals) and Boston Harbor and Massachusetts Bay. Some are part of the 26.2 jaunt of the Boston Marathon, while others are quaint suburbs that feel worlds away from the bustle of the city. The region is also home to some of the most eminent historic sites in the country and more than 110 institutions of higher education, including Harvard University in Cambridge, the nation’s oldest.
WHERE WE ARE
North Shore A boater’s paradise, the North Shore of Massachusetts is rife with a gorgeous waterfront that beckons visitors to come ashore and explore its charming town centers, world-class restaurants, and culturally vibrant, family-oriented seaside communities. Aside from its occasional rocky coastline, the North Shore features some of the best beaches, bucolic farms, quintessential New England town centers, and pristine views of the Atlantic Ocean. From sailing Gloucester Harbor to squeaking your feet on Manchester’s Singing Beach to dining atop the Newburyport Rear Range Light, life on the North Shore moves at a slower pace—and that’s part of the charm.
WHERE WE ARE
South Shore Known for its beautiful neighborhoods, coastline roads, and beach-day destinations, Massachusetts’ South Shore offers numerous seaside towns with easy commutes to downtown Boston and no shortage of enviable places to call home. The region is characterized by extensive beaches and marshes, frequented by wildlife watchers and recreational boaters. Seaside communities come to life in the summer with outdoor movie screenings and live music performances. Relax on the sand by day and indulge in fine waterfront dining by night, all the while enjoying life’s tranquil cadence.
WHERE WE ARE
Cape Cod Cape Cod offers everything needed for a warm-weather playground, from gorgeous beaches, pond-filled parks, and miles of well-maintained bike trails to dining options ranging from five-star fancy to fried-clam casual. But for those who have made this arm-shaped peninsula their year-round home, real living often begins the day after Labor Day, after they’ve waved goodbye to the last sunburned tourist. The beaches and clam bars may draw the day-trippers, but it is the hidden natural gems and strong cultural community that tie the area’s residents to this very special place. Whatever your idea of heaven, chances are you will find it in any Cape Cod locale, where you can live the high life or barely stir from your beach chair.
