Lonely Planet writer Mara Vorhees describes why she loves Boston. "Boston is wicked smaaht. I love that my city is motivated not by money or politics, but by learning. The academic institutions are a source of groundbreaking ideas, creative endeavors and renewable energy, which contribute to a dynamic, forward-looking city. But not all Bostonians are innovators: some are also scholars and conservators of history. After all, this is the 'Cradle of Liberty' and all that. So while it looks to the future, Boston also appreciates and celebrates the past, and maybe even learns from the compelling history that happened here."
