Boston is the largest city in New England, the capital of Massachusetts and one of the most historic cities in the United States. Founded in 1630, Boston was at the center of the American Revolutionary period; the Boston Massacre in 1770 and the Boston Tea Party in 1773 were key events leading up to the Revolution in 1775. Today, Boston’s patriotic legacy attracts countless visitors each year.
