Would you like to enjoy all that Boston, Massachusetts has to offer this summer? The history. The great seafood.

The chance to see how the Red Sox do against the Green Monster at Fenway Park.
If you’re a nurse, then consider a 13-week assignment in an oncology department in Brighton, Massachusetts. This facility offers world class care and is recognized as one of the finest in America. This assignment offers a top wage, sign on and retention incentives, and a benefit plan second to none.
Located just about 15 minutes west of downtown Boston, Brighton is a lovely neighborhood within the city’s limits.
It’s so close to Cambridge – home to Harvard, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Charles River – that it once was a part of Cambridge, and even sported the nickname “Little Cambridge,” before separating from Cambridge in the early years of the 19th century and eventually annexing into Boston proper about 70 years later.
You’ll find lovely multi-family homes and condos along Brighton’s streets, making the neighborhood a fan with families of school-age children. Many public and Catholic schools offer educational services to the area’s youngsters.
Graduate students and professionals who work downtown also have flocked to Brighton, frequenting Washington Street, which runs straight through the neighborhood from Oak Square to Brighton Center.
Many people consider Brighton to be the “western gateway” to Boston. George Washington came to town in 1775 to purchase fresh fruit and food for his troops. In fact, this lovely neighborhood has seen so many historical figures visit or live here, and has witnessed so many important happenings in U.S. history that it has received historic district designation. Stroll its streets to see terrific examples of 18th and 19th century architecture!
You’ll definitely want to stroll along the sidewalks of Brighton Main Streets, a pedestrian-friendly shopping area that offers great shopping, entertainment and dining opportunities.
All the incredible U.S. history that is downtown Boston is just a short ride on the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s (MBTA) Green Line light rail service. Visit Faneuil Hall Marketplace, walk the Boston Freedom Trail and see for yourself the spots where many of the Revolutionary War’s important milestones took place. Visit Paul Revere’s home, as well as the Old North Church. Take a step back in time as you step aboard the USS Constitution.
