I lived in Boston for 5 years now (Boston University for 4 plus one to work a crappy job before moving somehwere else). My favorite thing to do in Boston was to go on adventures with my gf Ellen. Last year we went someplace new every week on Thursdays. From Cambridge to the South End, from Ethiopian to Spanish. Good times.
Here's a nicer picture of Boston from across the Charles River. I attribute the unfocused look to pollution. It's kinda sick. I consider myself more of a city person who escapes to the country rather than vice versa, but the one thing that always gets to me in ANY city is exhaust fumes.
My favorite things about Boston are its size and character. Not as huge and crazy as New York. Boston is very historic, filled with students, and many card-carrying Sox fans. People are very opinionated yet kind and courteous (think Brian from Average Joe 2).
Maybe I'm trying to really drive the point home here, but, DO NOT SWIM IN THE CHARLES!! There are actually signs around the river that warn you not to swim in it...let's hope it changes by 2060!!
- Pros:One of the oldest cities in the USA, lots of historic stuff to see
- Cons:Political mess, lot's of taxes for mamoth construction projects
- In a nutshell:Just Pahk Yah Cah in Hahvudd Yahd
