There’s more to us Bostonians, too. Did you know Boston is an epicenter for health, science, and medical research? It’s where visions are born and discoveries are made. In fact, it’s one of the best places in the world to get treatment for a health issue.

If you’re new to Boston, us Bostonians are a lot of fun too. We take our sports seriously, but not much else. The spring and summer, bring festivals, outdoor concerts, and cultural gatherings. Plus, many neighborhoods boom with art, restaurants, and music.
