 A Massachusetts City was Recently Named the 24th Best City in the World for 2024 

Whether you are traveling or looking to immerse yourself in city life, you may want to check out Boston. Massachusetts' capital is ranked the 24th best city (out of 100) in the world according to a study conducted by Resonance Consultancy which is a leading global advisor on tourism, real estate, and economic development for the world's best destination, cities, districts, and developers.

Here's an Excerpt From Resonancy Consultancy's Review of Boston:

A hub of higher education and home to the 14th-most educated workforce on the planet, Beantown produces a steady stream of new talent to help attract start-ups and established companies alike. Future talent gravitates to Harvard, of course—the top-ranked university in the world—as well as to Boston’s density of other world-class universities and colleges. The city’s cultural clout is also ascendant courtesy of the Fenway Sports Group and Live Nation’s new MGM Music Hall at Fenway, a 5,000-seat concert hall that extends the iconic ballpark.

24 key factors grouped into six categories were used for the ranking system including place, product, programming, people, prosperity, and promotion. You can learn more and find out which other cities made the 2024 list by going here.
