Thinking About Living In Boston?

Aug 17, 2007
If you are young, energetic, and looking for a city that has the same energy levels then you should consider living in Boston. Boston is also known by the name of "City of Youth". It earned this title because there are so many college students in Boston.

Boston is also the home of the Red Sox, The Freedom Trail, Fenway Park, The Kennedy's, and so much more. This is a city rich in history not only for the city but also for the country itself.

Greater Boston is made up of the south shore, north shore, east, and west and each area is rich in ethnic culture, tradition, and some eclectic mix. It is certainly a tourist city but it is also a young city where young people can enjoy outdoor activities, sailing, spending some time at the museum or theater, and enjoy a night out on the town.

Boston is a city where you can find employment in just about any career you can think of. From education to medicine to computer science to business to accounting to journalism to television. I am certain you get the picture. There are just so many opportunities here.

Living in Boston is not cheap but then again if you are making a good wage, you can afford the higher cost of living. Now when we say it is expensive we do not just mean a little bit we mean a lot. The average studio apartment will cost you around $1300 and that is for about 350 square feet. A two-bedroom apartment will cost you around $2000 a month.

If you are planning to buy, you can expect to pay a lot. A two bedroom single-family dwelling can run anywhere from $485,000 running up into the millions depending on where in Boston you plan to buy. The condominium market is also very popular running about 25% lower than single-family house prices.

Getting around Boston is no trouble at all and you do not have to drive. You can walk just about anywhere in the city. In addition, of course there is also the full city transit system. Driving is insane here with the rudest drivers on the planet. If at all possible, leave your car at home and take alternative transportation.

If you love to shop and love to look great then be sure to visit the high fashion shops along Newbury Street and check out the bargains that can be found at Filene's Basement. There are all kinds of great little boutiques that you will be looking fabulous all the time!

There are also some great salons where you can enjoy a wonderful pedicure or manicure and get the perfect haircut. This simply is a great area to shop and you should not miss out on it.

When you are first becoming accustomed to life in Boston, take your time and get to know your way around. It is definitely worth it! There is just so much you can enjoy with all the arts, and entertainment to enjoy. This is a city with people of all ages, colors, and races and so it is a very stimulating place to work and play.
