Welcome to Boston, Massachusetts, USA!

Boston, first incorporated as a town in 1630, and as a city in 1822, is one of America’s oldest cities, with a rich economic and social history. What began as a homesteading community eventually evolved into a center for social and political change. Boston has since become the economic and cultural hub of New England.

As the region’s hub, Boston is home to over 617,000 residents, many institutions of higher education, some of the world’s finest inpatient hospitals, and numerous cultural and professional sports organizations. Boston-based jobs, primarily within the finance, health care, educational, and service areas, numbered nearly 660,000 in 2002. Millions of people visit Boston to take in its historic neighborhoods, attend cultural or sporting events, and conduct business.

Did you know Boston has many nicknames, including:
  • The City on a Hill came from original Massachusetts Bay Colony‘s governor John Winthrop‘s goal to create the biblical "City on a Hill.” It also refers to the original three hills of Boston.
  • The Hub is a shortened form of a phrase recorded by writer Oliver Wendell Holmes, The Hub of the Solar System. This has since developed into The Hub of the Universe.
  • The Athens of America is a title given by William Tudor, co-founder of the North American Review for Boston’s great cultural and intellectual influence.
  • The Puritan City nickname references the religion of the city’s founders.
  • The Cradle of Liberty derives from Boston’s role in instigating the American Revolution.
  • City of Notions in the nineteenth century.
  • America’s Walking City, because Boston’s compact and high density nature has made walking an effective and popular mode of transit in the city. In fact, it has the seventh-highest percentage of pedestrian commuters of any city in the United States, while neighboring Cambridge is the highest.
  • Beantown refers to the regional dish of baked beans. This nickname is almost exclusively used by non-Bostonians and is rarely used by natives. According to, back in colonial days, a favorite Boston food was beans baked in molasses for several hours. Boston was part of the "triangular trade” in which slaves in the Caribbean grew sugar cane to be shipped to Boston to be made into rum to be sent to West Africa to buy more slaves to send to the West Indies. Sailors and traders called it "Beantown” The local residents did not refer to their city as "Beantown.”
  • Titletown refers to Boston’s historic dominance in the world of sports, specifically the Boston Celtics, having 17 NBA Championships.
  • City of Champions, much like Titletown, refers to Boston’s recent streak of dominance in sports, with the Boston Red Sox, Boston Celtics, Boston Bruins, and New England Patriots each winning World (i.e., national) Championships in the last decade.
  • The Olde Towne comes from the fact that Boston is one of the oldest cities in the United States. It is often used in reference to the Boston Red Sox (The Olde Towne Team)
