Welcome to Boston! Founded in 1630, Boston is one of the oldest cities in the United States. Rich in history, prestigious universities, and wicked good chowda, Boston is a timeless city to visit for a weekend or stay for a lifetime. The quintessential brick and cobblestone walkways make Boston a lovely city to walk around and explore. Take the Freedom Trail, for example, a 2.5 mile walking route of various historic sites that tell the story of this great early nation. Venture on over to the North End for delicious Italian cuisine or catch a game at the iconic Fenway Park, home of the Boston Red Sox. With all that Boston has to offer, you will find yourself plenty busy with sights to see and activites to do.
While your in the area, stop on by Concord MA, the home and headquarters of our team office! Well known as the location of the infamous battle of Lexington and Concord during the American Revolutionary War, Concord is also extremely rich in literary history. Remarkable writers such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Louisa May Alcott, and Henry David Thoreau all called Concord home during the 19th century.
Top Places to Eat in Boston: Greek Corner in Cambridge has THE best gyros and for pizza I love Penguin Pizza. If you are looking for something a little more upscale I always recommend Craigie on Main or Gaslight.
Boston’s Best Kept Secret: If you are looking to avoid Red Sox traffic, take Bay State Road! Also the children's museum has unscheduled "grown-up" nights where you get drunk and play with toys, no kids needed.
Best Boston Locations to Order an Uber: Fastest response time for rideshares is not in the heart of the city as many people might think. It's in fact (in my opinion) in Brighton Center!

Boston is the only place in the world where a boat can sail under a train going under a vehicle driving under an airplane.
Bringing it back to molasses again, the city’s nickname, Beantown, is due to the popularity of the baked beans in molasses among it’s early residents.
Curious about the daily weather while visiting Boston? Simply look up at the top of the John Hancock building where the lighted colors tell you the weather forecast. Solid blue, means it’s a clear day; flashing blue, signifys a cloudy day; solid red, shows there’s rain coming; and flashing red, means snow is coming. In the summer, flashing red means the Red Sox game is rained out.
While in your rideshare ride make sure to notice if you go through the Ted Williams Tunnel as it is the deepest tunnel in North America, running nearly 90 feet underneath the earth’s surface.
