Local Information

Boston, first incorporated as a town in 1630, and as a city in 1822, is one of America’s oldest cities. One of the best ways of navigating Boston’s historic sites is the Freedom Trail. The Trail takes the visitor to 16 historical sites in the course of two or three hours and covers two and a half centuries of America’s most significant past. A red brick or painted line connects the sites on the Trail and serves as a guide. Since the past and the present live alongside the Trail, its visitors have the opportunity to see the City as it truly is. Some of the historical sites included in the Freedom Trail are the Boston Common, State House, Park Street Church, Granary Burying Ground, Old South Meeting House, Old State House, Site of the Boston Massacre, Faneuil Hall, Paul Revere House, Old North Church, Copp’s Hill Burying Ground, USS Constitution, and the Bunker Hill Monument.

In addition to Northeastern University, Boston has many other colleges and universities that are available to visit, including scientific and engineering-focused schools such as Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Boston University, Boston College, Tufts University, and Wentworth Institute of Technology. Other prominent institutions are Berklee College of Music, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Emerson College, New England Conservatory, and many more. More than a quarter million students attend colleges and universities in Boston alone making Boston a very young, energetic, and inspiring city.
