Boston, Massachusetts is the epicenter of academia and culture. Harvard is in nearby Cambridge, MIT is also nearby, along with many other reputable schools. The streets are idyllic in the winter time, as if you just walked off a Walt Whitman poem. The Freedom Trail is in Boston, as is the permanent home of the U.S.S. Constitution. Boston is steeped in history and purpose. Without Boston, there would be no America.
