It only makes sense that the auto detailers at Car Care are as mobile as the vehicles that they work on. Stocked with cleaning gear, their service vans travel around the Boston area before stopping at offices and homes. There, the detailers wash car exteriors by hand and venture inside to sweep, scrub, and condition all surfaces, including leather seats and miniature dance floors. Alternatively, the team also works out of four service locations. At these brick-and-mortar spots, the team replaces windshields, removes scratches, and executes all manner of auto body repair.
For more than 20 years, Propark America has been providing parking spaces at more than 400 locations across the country. Propark's self-serve and full-service airport parking facilities store autos during journeys and allow customers to check the status of their flights with real-time flight-schedule screens. Partnering with hotels, restaurants, and entertainment and sports venues, Propark also offers prompt and courteous valet services—often hiring college track athletes for their dependable, disciplined, and speedy legs—and supplying drivers with safe car storage should football-touchdown dances get entirely out of hand.
Part of Propark's mission includes a commitment to sustainability, as seen through its Canopy Airport Parking site at the Denver International Airport. The energy-efficient location utilizes charging stations for electrical vehicles, LED lighting, a solar-panel farm, and wind turbines. Propark is also a founding partner of the Green Parking Council, which helps convert parking facilities into environmentally-responsible operations, and offers free loaner bikes at participating hotels.

In the year of America?s bicentennial, the fervor for American history was at an all-time high, and few cities are as full of patriotic landmarks as Boston. As floods of citizens came to see and experience America?s roots, Polly Flansburgh decided to gather together experienced locals to educate visitors and newcomers on the stories in which the city is steeped. Nearly four decades later, her non-profit, Boston By Foot, still pairs curious patrons with enthusiastic volunteers schooled by the company in the city?s lore and architecture.
This diverse selection of tours allows patrons to learn more about the aspects of Boston that interest them most. Specialized excursions might visit the scenes of the city's most infamous crimes and diseases, the buildings important in the revolution, the homes of Boston?s greatest literary heroes, and places where somebody found an onion that looked sort of like Robert De Niro. The staff even lead one tour specifically designed for children, which helps illustrate lessons from history class without too much walking for little legs.
