Boston is the capital and largest city in Massachusetts. It is one of the oldest and most historic cities in the United States. Famous for its harbor, the city offers:

• A variety of neighborhoods ranging from the red brick sidewalks, cobblestoned streets, elegant townhouses and gas street lamps of Beacon Hill, through to more diverse neighborhoods such as Dorchester, where the The Departed was filmed.
• A vibrant city skyline.
• Beautiful city parks such as Boston Common.
• Famous sport venues including Fenway Park, the home of the Red Sox where parts of Moneyball were filmed.
• Centres of learning such as the Cambridge, MIT and Harvard University campuses.
• Rowers on Charles River.

The world’s most prestigious marathon takes place in Boston every April.

The city has a streamlined film permitting process. Proof of insurance is required.

When To Shoot?

Massachusetts has a four-season climate. Spring is warm, summer is hot and humid, fall is colourful much like the rest of New England, and winters are snow-covered.
