Boston is Massachusetts’ capital and largest city. Founded in 1630, it’s one of the oldest cities in the U.S. The key role it played in the American Revolution is highlighted on the Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile walking route of historic sites that tells the story of the nation’s founding. Boston was the scene of several key events of the American Revolution, such as the Boston Massacre, the Boston Tea Party, the Battle of Bunker Hill, and the Siege of Boston. Upon American independence from Great Britain, the city continued to be an important port and manufacturing hub, as well as a center for education and culture. Its rich history helps attract many tourists, with Faneuil Hall, a popular marketplace, alone attracting over 20 million visitors per year. Boston’s many firsts include the United States’ first public school, Boston Latin School (1635), and first subway system (1897).
The area’s many colleges and universities make Boston an international center of higher education and medicine, and the city is considered to be a world leader in innovation. Boston’s economic base includes high-tech industries, finance, professional and business services, and government activities. Boston won first place honors in the 2015 City Livability Awards Program during The U.S. Conference of Mayors’ 83rd Annual Meeting. Winning cities were selected by former mayors from a pool of over 200 applicants. This is the 36th year in which cities have competed for the award.
Boston Massachusetts is an exciting urban city home to some of the best universities in the world including Tufts University on whose campus MWSCAS 2017 will be held. Boston is a tourist destination offering diverse cultural and historic attractions, vibrant nightlife, and family fun.
