Boston is home to a whopping 35 universities, including a few of the favorites - Harvard, MIT, Boston University, and more. It’s no wonder this city has a history of innovation and barrier-breaking. Even if your college days are long over, taking a tour of these prestigious universities lets you glimpse into the lives of 10% of Boston’s population. Stop by the college bars and bookstores, or get a ticket to the latest sports game or artistic performance. Elsewhere in the city, explore Boston’s literary scene, visiting the historic Brattle bookshop (America’s oldest) which spills into the open lot next door, or the incredible Boston Public Library, the second-largest in the country.
