Greater Boston Regions
The State of Massachusetts has created 16 individual tourism regions, and each region has a Regional Tourism Council (RTC) for the purpose of marketing and promoting the state geographically. The largest of these RTCs is Greater Boston, which includes the municipality of Boston and 43 cities and towns in the eastern portion of the state.
Many of the towns are suburban to Boston and boast their own unique charm and character! From the suburbs that hug Boston to those along the iconic 26.2-mile Boston Marathon route, you'll discover a delightful mix of neighborhood styles.
