Greetings from Red Sox Nation, home of the Boston Tea Party, Beantown or whatever you like to call it. Clearly Boston is a city full of life (and United States History).
As I said before, Austin is a city with many accolades, but we should consider all the alternatives during recruiting. All Big 4 have offices in Boston!
The Skyline is beautiful especially at night. I’m sure many of you would argue that it holds no candle to the skyline of Austin, but I’m still a big fan.
Apart from the skyline, Boston has a lot of other great sites to see.
1. Fenway Park: I may have mentioned before that I am not the biggest sports fan (other than the Longhorns, of course.) But nothing beats the atmosphere and camaraderie of Fenway Park. The park opened in 1912 and is considered one of the most iconic sports venues in the world. If you get the chance to intern in the city, I definitely recommend you check out a Red Sox game. And if you can, sit on the Green Monster!
2. North End: Akin to New York City’s “Little Italy,” the North End is a historic neighborhood in Massachusetts that has been inhabited since the 1600s. The neighborhood is rich in Italian culture and DELICIOUS food. If you visit the North End, be sure to check out Mike’s Pastry- best pastries and cookies you will ever have!
3. Charles River: For all my runners out there, the Charles River is a beautiful running trail. My cousin who lives in Boston runs it everyday. (Barring a snow storm or freezing temperatures!)
4. Freedom Trail: Follow the red brick road! Some people visit the city and do not check out this trail and they are missing out. If you are thinking of interning in Boston, the Freedom Trail is a great way to really get to know the city.
There is so much history in Boston and it is truly one of the best cities I have visited. Don’t discount it in your considerations!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful break!
