Boston is a fantastic city with a ton of different activities at any given time! In the summer time, there are loads of free events (concerts, park performances, museum openings, and sports events) for people of all ages, and the city really comes to life when the weather gets warm. The city is incredibly walkable, and the public transportation (though sometimes inconsistent and a little pricey) makes getting around really easy. Each neighborhood has a unique atmosphere, and the local bars and restaurants definitely add to those. Prices for rent and drinks in the city can be a little high, but for a young adult the night life is pretty great.
I came to Boston for college and I plan on staying. I tell everybody that it's a great "beginner city" for new city dwellers. I came from a suburban school town and in a couple years feel that Boston is truly my home. With the New England charm, you can sense the history in each step on the cobblestones at Quincy Market or on the docks on the Charles River. It's not usually too crowded and if you want a nightlife, you have to work a little for it. Unlike, NYC, we have a saying in Boston, the city that ALWAYS sleeps. This close down early, which make is really great for families. I plan to have a family in Boston and hopefully a dog. There's lots of dog parks and go food of all kinds! Boston is a community that I'm happy to be a part of.
Boston is great! We have the Sox, Pats, Bruins, and Celtics. Home time pride is huge here! regardless, the environment is still welcoming. Long-term residents and locals make you feel at home. The only down side to such a progressive community is, the over aggressive gentrification. Destroying the livelihood of the city, in order to attract more money. Constant construction with horrendous driving makes for a disaster. Long story short, try some roast beef from Kellys' and enjoy the phenomenal architecture.
