Top 10 reasons I love Boston

As I depart for Boston for our big annual meeting, I remember the many reasons I love this city with charming brown stones and cobble stone streets.

  • Boston is rich in our country's history with sites that depict everything from the pilgrims at Plymouth Rock and Paul Revere to the Boston Tea Party, Salem Witch Trials and the Museum of African American History.

  • The Italian food is delicious, especially creamy ice cream and amazing pizza in the charming restaurants and bakeries of North End.

  • Thanks to my Mom's love of literature and lifelong annual visits to Boston, we toured the homes of Louisa May Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry James and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow to name just a few.

  • The fresh sea food from the Atlantic Ocean is scrumptious.

  • There are 30 different universities and colleges in Boston.

  • Boston teams have spirit, go Red Sox!

  • Boston accents are the best. Just say, "Park the car in the Harvard yard" without the "r" sound.

  • If you want to shop, Copley Place has something for every budget with lots of high end options.

  • The history is intertwined with churches such as Trinity. The Old North Church, where Paul Revere once rang the bell, dates back to 1722. At the other end of Copley Square sits Trinity Church, built in the late 1800's. They're known for their music.

  • Boston is home to many good musicians such as Aerosmith, Donna Smith, James Taylor, New Kids on the Block and of course Boston.
