Greater Boston: An Extraordinary Destination




Boston, first incorporated as a town in 1630, and as a city in 1822, is one of America's oldest cities, with a rich economical and social history. What began as a homesteading community eventually evolved into a center for social and political changes. Boston has since become the economic and cultural hub of New England.

As the region's hub, Boston is home to nearly 590,000 residents, many institutions of higher education, some of the world's finest inpatient hospitals, and numerous cultural and professional sports organizations. Boston-based jobs, primarily within the finance, health care, educational, and service areas, numbered nearly 660,000 in 2002. Millions of people visit Boston to take in its historic neighborhoods , attend cultural or sporting events, and conduct business.

The City provides a wide range of programs and services to meet the diverse needs of its many residents and visitors. The City is also aggressively pursuing new economic opportunities to ensure Boston will emerge as a global leader in the twenty-first century economy.
