BOSTON

The city and the history

Boston is the biggest city of the state Massachusetts but a lot of people see Massachusetts as the capital city of New England. Boston is one of the oldest and richest cities of the US. The first people out of Europe arrived in 1630. The most of these Europeans were British people. That’s the main reason why you can see all the English influences in New England. The American revolution started here and the main point of the revolution was to resist the high taxes. The people of the US also wanted to be independent.
It’s not strange that there is an European ‘vibe’ in Boston, for an example there is an Itilian neighbourhood. To make a long story short, there are some different European influences and Boston has a long and special history.
