Boston Massachusetts City Profile

Historically, Boston is perhaps best known for its role in the American Revolution. During the early 1770s, British attempts to control the thirteen colonies, mainly through taxation, encouraged Bostonians to initiate the American Revolution. The Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, and several early battles occurred in or near the city. Today, you can visit these historical attractions by taking walking tours and visiting the great museums of the Boston area.

Boston is also distinguished by the largest concentration of world-renowned colleges and universities in the United States. Harvard University (America's first college), MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), and Boston College are just a few of the many colleges in the greater Boston area.
