K
nown for making history from its earliest days, Boston
is a natural home for the Door and Hardware Institute’s
2008 Conference and Exposition where we are sure to
make history with our best ever show. Ranked as the 10th
most popular tourist city in the United States, you’ll find
the city to be packed with incredible sites and delicious
restaurants. In fact, with so much to see and do, you may want to come early
and stay late just to try and take it all in!
Similar to Nashville, home of the 2007 DHI Conference and Exposition,
Boston is also known for its abundance of learning establishments. From
Harvard University, to Boston College and MIT, there are few cities that
have as many prominent colleges and universities as Boston.
In addition to being the site of the famous Boston Tea Party and the Battle
of Bunker Hill, it was also the site of many firsts such as the first public
school, college and American subway.
When most people think of Boston, its importance in the birth of America
is usually one of the first things that comes to mind. Today, with a population of 4.4 million, it is the 11th largest metropolitan area in the United
States. Whether you refer to it as Beantown or the Cradle of Liberty, Boston
is a one-of-a-kind travel destination in beautiful New England. History
buffs could spend days just scratching the surface of the numerous landmarks, historical buildings and museums. If you would like to combine
your history lesson of the area with some exercise and fresh air, hop on the
Freedom Trail. This 2.5 mile trail passes historical homes, meeting houses, a
ship, burial grounds, museums and more.

This year’s conference will be held the first week in
November, but even though we’ll be farther north than
usual, there should be little chance of experiencing winter
weather this early in the season. Average highs for early
November are in the mid 50s with lows near 40.
