Review of Boston, Massachusetts


LOVE MY MA
Star Rating - 2/23/2016
SOOOO proud to be from Massachusetts. We have it all here. Great colleges, ethnic and cultural diversity, an hour either way from the pure heaven of the Cape, North Shore, and Western MA not to mention going over the "Bordah" to NH and RI. The food is phenomenal and eclectic with our many farms, fishing ports and dairies, the people reserved and clannish but are made of long term friendship material. A sense of work ethics, a bit starchy but a great dry sense of humor. And we like our independence....oh yeah. We were the ones who broke the King's piece. History and cutting edge medical research. A dichotomy of staunch New England townies, preppies and Brahman intellectuals and Alternate therapy non conformists, wiccan new age hipsters and blue collar sports fans. There's a place for everyone here

What Gretchen meant is, "A dichotomy of staunch New England townies, preppies and Brahman intellectuals and Alternate therapy non conformists, wiccan new age hipsters and blue collar sports fans" with hourlong commutes unless their trust funds are in the 7-figures. Residing in rat-infested apartments with multiple roomies. Never getting married or having kids because the student debt is $$$$$$$$. Healthcare is the only part of Boston that's below the national average. Everything else is +++ money. Sure, Boston is pretty (for a couple months in the summer), but the cons outweigh the pros.
