As we, and the rest of the country, wait for information about the horrific bombing in Boston yesterday, we'll be sending our hopes and prayers to that city's residents. We also want to take a moment to remember all the things we love about that classic American city and look forward to visiting there again soon.
There's a reason T+L's readers selected Boston as America's Favorite City in 2008: Steeped in history, Boston also has a cool, modern edge. What's not to like in a town that has beautiful parks like Boston Common, great museums like the Boston Children's Museum, historic waterfront areas, and beloved sports venues like Fenway Park? And, of course, great food, especially pizza. (Top among America's Best this year.) Need more reasons Boston is the best? The charming regional accents, the colleges, the college bars, and the amazing hotels.
For these and so many other reasons, we love Boston. To all our friends and readers there, we're thinking of you and we hope to see you soon. Yours is a world class city, and you mean the world to us.
