Its rich traditions date back to 1630, when Puritan settlers from England founded and colonized the Shawmut Peninsula. Later, the city served as the scene of several key events in the country’s history, as well as a cultural and educational hub. Today, it bursts with Yankee pride and offers some of the best dining experiences in the state. When you fly to BOS in a private jet, you’ll have plenty to eat. While fish, shellfish and baked beans remain staples, the plethora of restaurants surrounding the airport is sure to please any palate.
