One excellent example of Boston pride and traditions is the Boston Marathon. The Boston Marathon takes place on Patriot's Day, and all students in Massachusetts and Maine get the day off. As a result of the holiday, people from all around come to watch what some Boston residents refer to as "Marathon Monday". One of my favorite traditions inside of the Boston Marathon is Mile 21. Mile 21 is right after "Heartbreak Hill" and is when runners begin their final push for the finish line. This mile runs straight through the Boston College Campus, and a large number of students even including the BC Band cheer on the runners to give them a second wind to finish the race.
Another example of Boston pride and traditions is Fenway Park. Fenway Park is the oldest MLB stadium still in use and home of the Boston Red Sox. This stadium was built in 1912 and has many interesting features. One of my favorite ones is the Green Monster; a 37 foot left-field wall that was painted green in 1947. It is famous for having one of the best views in all of baseball, and being one of the only ballparks in the MLB that still uses a manual scoreboard.
Boston was a great experience and that was truly a trip I will never forget. With it's tremendous pride and unique traditions, it is easy to understand why Boston is a city like no other.
