Boston is a city that feels more like a town with a compact, pedestrian-friendly center. Some of the oldest streets in the country traverse the city of Boston, and along them you'll find scores of universities, museums, world-class restaurants, and history-drenched architecture.

Progressive communities and hip neighborhoods flank each other from the Boston Harbor to Cambridge and are filled with activities, attractions, shopping and nightlife. Are any of them the best? Experience a few and find out!
