Boston, MA (PRWEB) January 03, 2012
Boston Central, the leading free resource for things to do in Boston and surrounding towns, today announced its calendar and guide for upcoming events and activities to kick off 2012. Hundreds of thousands of families visit Boston Central each month to find out about great events in Boston and New England. This completely free resource was founded nearly 10 years ago and has grown to have the largest database of Boston family and kids activities with over 10,000 events and activities.
“2011 was a banner year for BostonCentral.com,” said Stacey Sao, managing director for Boston Central. “We had over 50% growth in users as a result of people sharing our free event and activities resources through email, Facebook, and good old word of mouth. In fact, one of the top sources people select when signing up for our newsletter is ‘referred by a friend,’ demonstrating the huge value readers get from the service.”
With this significant growth, Boston Central has made a big investment in expanding its activities and events database. The database is developed through independent research and by compiling the hundreds of activities and event postings that are submitted by users each day. Advanced algorithms are used to highlight the most interesting activities and events for each month.
Boston Central also offers a complimentary newsletter of fun things to do in Boston with kids, which provides readers with a weekly rundown of great family-friendly activities and events in the Greater Boston and New England area each week.
