A big contributor to the dualism of Boston is its history. Over hundreds of years, charming neighborhoods and communities have found their groove and carved out singular identities. When you shop, play or dine in one of these areas, you feel like you’re in a cozy small town. Even attending a Red Sox baseball game connects you to the strong history and spirit of the city.

Of course, you'll probably be sticking around Boston much of the time. You could explore the Freedom Trail to better understand Boston’s history, or if you’ve done that already, plenty more trails await. They include the Boston HarborWalk and the Emerald Necklace.

Cold and snow are all but inevitable in Boston, but you can make that work for you too. In fact, you could take in a play or visit a museum.
