Indulge in the Great History and Architecture of Boston

28 Mar , 2016  

Founded in 1630, Boston is one of America’s oldest, most charming cities surrounded by the Greater Boston area, which is a unique mix of historic culture and innovation. Experience a piece of history by following the freedom trail witnessing some of the most historic landmarks and homes that Boston has to offer.

The architecture throughout the city is a blend of historic and modern designs, and is an accurate reflection of the history of the city dating back to the 17th century. Known for its rich history and architectural variety, today, the Boston area is one of the most desirable locations.

What really sets Boston apart from other major cities are the unique neighborhoods that make up the city – each neighborhood has its own distinct style and atmosphere.

Beacon Hill is one of Boston’s most iconic neighborhoods, known for its cobblestone streets and historic brick row houses. The historic neighborhood is regarded for some of Boston’s finest architecture and idyllic views, including Louisburg Square. At the pinnacle of the hill, the gold leaf shines from the State House rotunda.

Charlestown’s charming gaslit streets and Bunker Hill Monument are a nod to its 17th and 18th century roots. Today, it is home to longtime residents and young professionals, alike. The architecture of the community includes iconic brick townhouses, clapboard workers cottages, and newly developed, loft-style condominiums — many converted meticulously from historic buildings overlooking the harbor.

Back Bay  is known for some of the most exclusive addresses in Boston. A stroll down Newbury Street is reminiscent of the Champs Elysee in Paris. Its boutique shops and beautiful galleries display art in many forms. Elegant townhouses line charming Marlborough Street, while pedestrians enjoy the trees, sculptures and architecture of the beautiful Commonwealth Avenue Mall.

The North End is known for its history, charm, and the fabulous Italian eateries on every corner.  Many of Boston’s most historic attractions are located within the confines of this community.  The Freedom Trail runs down Hanover Street by Paul Revere’s House. The Old North Church sits on Salem Street boasting some of Boston’s most sacred monuments.

Midtown is really the heart of the Downtown, bordered by Back Bay, Beacon Hill and the North End/Waterfront.  In addition to Boston City Hall Plaza, many companies and agencies house their headquarters in the area. It is home to Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market Place, two of Boston’s most famous tourist attractions.
