Boston is one of the oldest cities in North America. And one of the newest. For over 400 years, it has been a major international seaport and trading center. But it is also one of the world's most dynamic centers of 21st-century technology. Its citizens played a major role in American history. And they are constantly creating new cityscapes, intellectual breakthroughs, adventurous art, and new ways to enjoy life.
