    Dana Kingman

    Admission Counselor
    Region: DC, DE, MD, MA (Boston and the Cape and Islands), NC, NY (Westchester and Rockland counties), SC, TN, VA
    "I love how Boston has a little bit of everything, on one block you may be surrounded by modern buildings and two blocks over is a street of townhouses from the 1800s. So if you are history nerd, such as myself, then you really can’t beat Boston. But personally, the most amazing thing is Boston’s ability to feel both large and small, sometimes, at the same time."

    "I love how festive Boston is; there is always an event to look forward to in every season and month. Marathon Monday in April is exciting, the Head of the Charles Regatta in October is incredible, and the fireworks and Boston Pops concert on July 4th are spectacular."
