Boston real estate is hoppin’! There comes a time in life when an abrupt change can turn life completely around, in a good way. When looking to settle down and purchase real estate, most people do not stay within the limits of the town they grew up. Relocating to a different city can be an exciting, life-changing move.
The city of Boston has been opening its arms to newcomers since the first immigrant arrived at the Port of Boston long ago. Things have changed a great deal since then (though Boston has retained its soft spot for cobble-stoned streets and brownstones).
Here are a few highlights of exciting things that happened in Boston over the past year:
Boston residents and others were invited to skate on the ice at Fenway Park, home of the Red Sox. First Skate at Fenway Park was arranged in preparation for the NHL’s Winter Classic Game on January 1st.
The 2nd annual Boston Greenfest took over Boston last summer with music, art, seminars, workshops, and activities.
What would a major city be without a Restaurant Week? Boston area residents enjoyed the delicious cookery of over 200 restaurants.
Though not quite up there with Paris or New York, Boston Fashion Week has grown over the years to become a press-magnet and party-fest. All the better for its guests!
Renee Zelwegger and James Franco won the annual Harvard Hasty Pudding Award.
