BOSTON LIFE

Boston has been such a major part of the American history that nothing I can write here will ever do it justice.  Boston is a major city, with a vibrant and diverse cultural life, with a strong political heritage, and with a people who are constantly looking towards the future.  Boston comprises many areas, each with it's own history and traditions, each with its own flavor.

The links I listed below are only a short sample of the many resources that can be found, and if I omitted an important one, it's not intentionally.

Without words, this great video may give a new-comer just an idea of what to expect.
