Downtown Boston is notably different from other city centers. The neighborhood is home to Boston Common, which boasts more than 50 acres of natural beauty, with greenways spidering in all directions into surrounding neighborhoods. The nearby Aquarium, and the Children’s Museum on the south end are just two examples of the multitude of educational and historic landmarks available for the public to enjoy. The heart of the financial district is also located in downtown, which includes a wide array of shopping options, ranging from large department stores, to small local shops. Top restaurants line the streets of downtown, speaking to Boston’s reputation of having high-quality cuisine from a number of different cultures.
