Life in Boston

Home to over 60 colleges and universities, several major medical centers, biotech, and computer industries the Boston area has a robust economy and lively academic life. Dozens of museums, galleries, and parks provide something for everyone.  Whether you want to experience the historical side with a walk on the Freedom Trail, enjoy a picnic or run in the Boston Common, or eat a delicious dinner and cannoli in the North End, there is always something to do.  Through MGH and Harvard, you will also get discounted (or free) access to many museums, lecture series, and even the community boating program.  Of course for the sports fans, you’ll be kept busy rooting for the Celtics, Red Sox, Bruins, Patriots, and New England Revolution (soccer). It’s easy to sightsee in the city traveling on the MBTA.  Click on the pins below (as well as the link for To Do in New England) for more information on some of our favorite spots!
