Boston, Massachusetts is the capital of the state and one of the oldest cities in the United States, founded in 1630. The city played an important role during the American Revolution- it was the site of the Boston Massacre and the Boston Tea Party, and many of the battles of the Revolutionary War were fought near the city. Today, Boston hosts over 12 million visitors annually and is New England’s cultural and economic hub. Travelers come to enjoy the historic neighborhoods, museums, and educational facilities; to attend Boston sporting events; and to run the famous Boston Marathon.
