Our City, Our Region

We are home to world-class educational institutions, incredible cultural amenities, and first-class restaurants. New England is the cradle of American democracy and the birthplace of many of the most significant American ideas. Our region features rocky coastlines and sandy beaches, quaint villages and historic seacoast towns, and green mountains and rolling hills. We have hiking trails, bicycling paths, beautiful golf courses, and harbors for sailing.
