Once a hotbed of American independence, modern Boston is today a renowned center of learning and culture as well as New England's administrative and financial nexus. Hub of a sprawling and culturally diverse metropolitan area, Boston claims several highly-ranked universities, a host of world-class museums, architecturally significant neighborhoods, and a brace of sights and attractions related to the American struggle for independence and the early days of the nation. The redeveloped waterfront area and adjacent Faneuil Hall area draw throngs to the city's historic areas, while diehard fans pay tribute to their beloved Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park home games.
