Here’s what Time Out wrote about Boston:

If you’re looking for charming neighborhoods, iconic landmarks and sometimes overbearing accents, you’ve come to the right place. Between strolling the historic Freedom Trail, exploring the Museum of Fine Arts and eating your way through the North End, the list of things to do in Boston is endless. Despite the citywide 2am closing time, nightlife here is as vibrant as ever, from the chic bars in Back Bay to the more eclectic scene in Cambridge. Boston in 2024 remains a hub of innovation and tradition, making it a must-visit destination for those seeking a city that can do both this year.

While in Boston this year, it’s worth checking out the first Raffles in North America, wrote Time Out.

Time Out comprised its annual ranking, with the aid of research company Potentia Insight, using a global survey focused on cities.

“We surveyed thousands of city-dwellers about the quality and affordability of food, culture and nightlife in their city,” wrote Time Out. “We also asked locals how their city makes them feel: are they happy there? Is it a beautiful place? Is it easy to make social connections?”
