Map of Boston

Down below you can find a great map of Boston to aid you in your travels or your commute.

Boston is the capital city of the US state of Massachusetts, as well as its largest city. It has a population of about 618,000, making it the 22nd largest city in the US. But as you may know, looking only at the city proper can lead to an inaccurate image of how important and busy a city actually is. The Greater Boston Metropolitan area includes over 4.5 million people, making it the tenth largest metro area in the country - not 22nd largest as you might have expected. So Boston is a much more important center of business, commerce, and culture you would imagine from just hearing the population stats of the city proper.

Boston is one of the oldest cities in the USA, having been established in 1630 by Puritans from England. During the American Revolution, some of the most defining moments in American history took place in Boston, such as the Boston Tea Party, the Battle of Lexington and Concord, the Battle of Bunker Hill, and the Siege of Boston.

Boston is an important economic center, with the metro area having the sixth largest economy in the US, and the twelfth largest in the entire world!
