Wow, great photo tour! :) Boston is a city I still want to visit (haven't been to New England at all) and plan to do so one day. I used to think it was a very overrated city until I learned more about it. It looks (at least to me) like a city that would have over 1 million people living inside the city limits, but it doesn't. It's gorgeous though.

Boston is an amazing city...and this is coming from someone who will be going to college in NYC next year. Boston has retained that New England feel. The city is a bustle with top notch restaurants, bars, clubs, musuems, shops, hotels, theaters and more.

And yes the Boston hotel scene is very hot in my mind at least. Boston has tons of big name as well as family owned and operated hotels. There are 3 Marriotts, 1 Residence Inn by Marriott, 3 Courtyard by Marriotts, 2 Ritz Carltons, 1 Four Seasons, 2 Westin Hotels, 3 Hiltons, 3 Doubletree by Hilton Hotels, 1 Embassy Suites, 1 Hampton Inn, 3 Best Westerns, 1 Comfort Inn, 1 Clarion Hotel, 2 Holiday Inns, 1 Omni Hotel, 2 Hyatt Hotels, 2 Days Inn, 1 Howard Johnson...plus many more chains I am sure.

There are also many independantly owned and/or operated hotels which is nice to see since some cities have just the big chains. To name a few there is the Boston Park Plaza Hotel & Towers, Lenox Hotel, Colonnade Hotel, Copley Square Hotel, Nine Zero Hotel, Boston Harbor Hotel, Jury's Boston Hotel, Langham Boston, Charlesmark Hotel, Hotel Commonwealth, Fairmont Copley Plaza, Onyx Hotel, Eliot Hotel, Seaport Hotel, Millenium Bostonian, Harborside Inn, Midtown Hotel, Hotel 140, Chandler Inn, Shawmet Inn, Buckminster Hotel

If the city limits were the same geographical area as most cities in the US, Boston would at least have 800 or 900 thousand. The city's land area is 48 square miles, compared to 135 square miles for Philadelphia, 227 for Chicago, and 84 for Seattle.

Cities like Cambridge, Brookline, Somerville, and small parts of Newton resemble Boston's urban character but are independent cities. If Boston were to annex Cambridge, Somerville, and Brookline, the population would be 805,105 and the land area would be 65.7 square miles.

That's impressive. I guess it's less of a strain on infrastructure and essential services if they keep the city limits where they are, though.

Yes many of Boston's surrounding communities such as Cambridge and Newton (these are the ones I can speak for) are very wealthy communities and have parts of town that resemble both Boston and the New England feel. There is a downtown area in Cambridge and in Newton that is mixed use. Cambridge as well as Newton are also both home to many colleges and universities (Harvard, Cambridge College, Lesley University in Cambridge, Mount Ida College, Lasell College in Newton)
