closeBoston, founded in 1630, is one of the country's oldest cities. Often called the cradle of American history, it boasts a large number of historic landmarks and monuments. The 20th century added a series of skyscrapers to the skyline of church spires.
This cosmopolitan city has a relaxed atmosphere. The historic districts such as the charming Beacon Hill and the trendy Back Bay would fit nicely in any European city.
