10 of the Oldest Cities in the United States
Boston was founded in 1630 by Massachusetts Bay Colony. Today, Boston is one of the most important and powerful cities in the U.S., both economically and culturally. From a cultural point of view, Boston owns the oldest public park in the United States, namely Boston Common, located near the city’s financial district.
Some major annual events take place in the city, such as First Night, the Boston Music Festival, the Boston Arts Festival, and other Catholic festivals of Italian origin.
The city is known for both theater and classical music – for instance, Emerson Cutler Majestic Theatre, Citi Performing Arts Center and Symphony Hall are just a few of the most famous historic buildings dedicated to the arts.
