Boston has once again been named one of the Top 15 cities in the United States in the annual Conde Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards. Hundreds of thousands of votes were cast and Boston landed the #10 spot on the distinguished list. According to Conde Nast, Boston gained this esteemed recognition for its wonderful blend of old and new, culinary excellence, diverse culture and great sports fandom:
"As one of the oldest cities in the U.S., Boston has aged with style. For a quick refresh on the nation’s history, walk the Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile route of historic sites that takes you through the country’s founding. Other popular activities include seeking out the best oysters (check out Neptune), visiting the eclectic salon-style art display at Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, and catching a ball game at Fenway Park. Just be sure to learn the words to "Sweet Caroline" before you go."
