About Boston magazine

Sophisticated, intellectual, and full of charm, Boston is a world center of higher education, medicine, finance, and biotechnology, with some of the nation’s leading cultural institutions, best restaurants, trendiest shopping, top universities, and smartest people. Then there’s the other Boston: a city of power struggles, politics, expensive real estate, and cutting-edge music and arts.

For more than 40 years, Boston magazine’s experienced writers, editors, and designers have captured all sides of our city with award-winning and insightful writing, and groundbreaking reporting and design. Our expository features, narratives, profiles, and investigative features tell our half-million monthly readers how this city works, while our unsurpassed, sophisticated service journalism helps them get the most out of it. We report which towns and neighborhoods are the most desirable, which schools and workplaces are at the top of the heap, which doctors are first-rate, and which restaurants, stores, and services are the Best of Boston®.

Pull it all together, and it’s not hard to understand why our percentage of newsstand copies sold is among the highest of any magazine of any kind in the United States. Or why we’ve been named among the three best city magazines in the nation seven times by the City and Regional Magazine Association.

We’ll continue to deliver this great city like no one else can. Because the best city in America deserves the best city magazine.
