What do you think of when you hear someone talking about Boston? I’ve never visited the city, so I’ll be honest: All that I really know is that the Red Sox and Harvard are both in the area.
Did you know that the city was founded in 1630––well over a century before the U.S. became a country? With more than 650,000 people and 102 nearby colleges and universities, it’s a growing hotspot.
Listen up if you’re a foodie: The city is known for Samuel Adams beer, lobster, and Boston cream pie, but its most famous food might be its clam chowder.
Additionally, there are an impressive five sports teams in the city. Along with the Red Sox, you can find the Bruins, Celtics and Patriots.
City slang may sound bizarre to an outsider. Instead of saying very, Bostonians say wicked. Dunkies is a nickname for Dunkin’ Donuts, and remote controls are called clickers.
