The Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau, along with the Boston Hospitality Partners, is thrilled to welcome American Society for Microbiology to Boston for the asm2014. A lot has changed here recently so be prepared to be introduced to a new Boston. Our Waterfront is booming with restaurants and harbor walks, our museums have expanded and our hotels have renovated. But not to worry, our mix of colonial charm and urban sophisticationstill shines through making Boston a dynamic site for meetings of all kind.
Cambridge is often referred to as "Boston's Left Bank" with an atmosphere and attitude all its own. It's the spirited, slightly mischievous side of Boston, just a bridge away on the other side of the Charles River. Packed with youthful vitality and international flair, it is a city where Old World meets New Age in a mesmerizing blend of history and technology.
Even though Boston is one of the largest cities in the country, its accessibility is unparalleled. And while it's easy to see the sights on foot, Boston also has an excellent public transportation system. In addition to everything within the city limits, some of Massachusetts' most scenic and historic towns are just a short distance from the city center and its proximity to other must-see sites all around New England, make it one of the country's most diverse and exciting locations.
