Today, we’re talking Boston. One of the oldest cities in America, it comes as no surprise that Boston is, and always has been, a hub for the arts, education, and cultural diversity. Founded in 1630, Boston exists as a historical landmark in the nation’s history. It is a city of “firsts”- spearheading all kinds of social development projects such as public schools, mass transportation, and public parks.

From Boston’s rich cultural roots, literature and arts movements have flourished in the city and granted the well-earned nickname “intellectual capital of the United States.” Boston was the birthplace of the first free public library in 1852, the Boston Public Library. Art museums such as the Museum of Fine Arts and Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA), as well as famous historical sites like Boston Common, Park Street Church, Old State House, and Old Corner Bookstore continue to draw visitors to the city year-round.

The lucky ones who call Boston home each have a personalized relationship with the city in their own way. We asked a handful of Bostonians to show us their all time fave spots in the city and explain what makes it so special to them! We love Boston and are glad to be a part of such a historical city. Read on about the places they selected below:

One of my favorite spots in Boston is Boston Harbor ⚓️ so when @westelm asked if I had a favorite place that I wanted to shout out to for some #locallove I knew I would be heading here! Growing up we spent a lot of time on the Cape, and one of my dad's favorite things to do was watch the boats in the harbor. The Tall Ships are in town until Wednesday, so we went down today with my dad to see them. There's something about Boston Harbor that makes this city a little extra special ❤️ and just across from where I'm standing in this photo is the hotel where we had our wedding reception 3 years ago! Best views of the city from their patio! Plus, you may or may not know that Boston Harbor has a bunch of islands you can visit for day trips. ⛴ #westelmlocal #ad
