Boston is the capital and largest city in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and is one of the oldest cities in the United States. It is considered the economic and cultural center of New England (the northeastern region of the contiguous United States), and is home to roughly 600,000 people. Its metropolitan area is called Greater Boston, and includes parts of Rhode Island, New Hampshire and Maine, and has a population of over 4.4 million residents.
The city was founded in 1630 by the Puritan colonists who had come over from England to pursue religious freedom. It continued to grow as more colonists came over, and during the Revolutionary War (and the events leading up to it) the city was a haven for anti-British activity.
Afterwards, the city became a major shipping center in the United States, and during the Civil War was a major manufacturer of weapons and supplies for the Union forces, a trend that continued through almost every major war the United States was involved in. Today, the city is a considered a world city, though the cost of living and its livability rank are both extremely high.
The city lies in a mix between a humid continental climate and a humid subtropical climate, a situation that is normal throughout New England. Summers are warm and humid while winters are incredibly cold, windy and snowy. Summer temperatures rarely reach higher than 85 degrees, while lows can drop to around 65 or so; however, in the winter, temperatures reach no higher than the mid 40\’s, and oftentimes lows are below freezing.
