Boston has a long and storied history, being one of the oldest cities in the United States. The city itself is home to over 690,000 people, with the greater metropolitan area home to almost 5 million people, making it the largest city in New England.
Since 1630, Boston has been an important city in American history – it was the scene for many events in the American Revolution, including the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party and the Battle of Bunker Hill. This history attracts more than 20 million visitors to the city every year.
In addition to its history, Boston is known for its higher education and scientific research. More than 350,000 students attend college or university in the city. Three world-renowned universities call Greater Boston area home: Harvard, Tufts and MIT. Boston College, Northeastern University, Boston University and Brandeis University, among many others, are all situated in the city or the Greater Boston area.
Boston has one of the strongest economies in the nation, coming in at sixth with $363 billion. The prevalence of many higher education institutions contributes to this, as well as Boston being home to many biotechnology companies.
The city is also known for its music. The Boston Symphony Orchestra is highly regarded around the world as one of the best. Boston is, quite fitting to its history, home to many museums and galleries.
Boston has teams in all four major professional sports leagues, plus Major League Soccer. As of 2019, the city has won 39 championships across these leagues, making it one of only 8 cities in the country to have won championships in all major sports.
The city’s love of sports made Boston a United States Olympic Committee’s choice to bid to hold the Summer Olympics in 2024, but the city withdrew its bid in 2015.
Nearly a third of Bostonians use public transport for their commute to work, making Boston the fifth-highest rate of public transit use in the country. The city also hosts a lot more pedestrian commuters than other comparably sized cities.
Even with the public transport system in Boston, there could be a number of reasons a Boston resident uses their car.
According to local media, parking has become increasingly difficult in the neighborhoods of the city as the population grows. The Boston city government offers residents parking permits for free with no cap on how many permits have been given out. This has caused a lot of issues for people hoping to find a parking space – too many people are searching for too few spaces.
