Since the era of the 18th-century clipper ship trade, Boston has been a leader in world commerce. The region has a longstanding reputation for finance, health care, science, and technology, with new ventures in the areas of biotechnology, medical instrumentation, and multimedia services. World-renowned businesses such as Fidelity Investments, Genzyme, Gillette, John Hancock, New Balance, Raytheon, and Reebok are located here. Boston’s prestigious academic institutions, think tanks, and nonprofit organizations are internationally acclaimed.
Compact, charming, and historic, Boston is big league in every sense but size — easily explored by foot or via public transportation. The Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority — a.k.a. “the T” — provides quick, convenient access to numerous attractions, from the North End (home of Paul Revere) to Harvard Square.
