Boston City Breaks take you to to one of America's oldest towns. Located in the northern state of Massachusetts, Boston, with its colonial centre, has a unique historic charm and a timeless beauty. It is a vibrant city that attracts over twelve million visitors each year. Founded in 1630 by Puritans from England, Boston quickly became the political and commercial centre of the New England region. It remained a colony until 1776 when the American Revolution brought independence to the country. Boston became a great financial and intellectual centre, and today is renowned for its technological and biotechnological industries.
