Moving from Fort Lauderdale, FL to Boston, MA
You will need a giant stepping stone if you’re moving from sunny Fort Lauderdale, Florida to “Beantown” Boston, MA.  While Fort Lauderdale is located deep in southeastern Florida, Boston is way up north on the coast of Massachusetts Bay. Boston is often referred to as the “Capital of New England” due to the fact that it is one of the oldest cities in America and because of its cultural and economic impact on the entire area.  Boston has an actual population of 617,594 but the Greater Boston area is home to 4.5 million.

What you can expect from a move from Fort Lauderdale to Boston:
When you move to Boston from Fort Lauderdale, you’ll be spending 25 hours on the road, and traveling 1,475 miles of highway. Your drive to Boston will take you through gorgeous Savannah, GA, Richmond, VA, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, PA, New York City, NY, and Hartford, CT. The scenery will be a welcoming view as you travel up to Boston.

The weather in Boston
Boston’s climate is going to be different from what you’re used to in Fort Lauderdale—almost opposite! Boston has a humid continental climate characterized by mild summers and cold snowy winters. Winters may take some getting used to in Boston because they are generally really cold with lots of snow and temperatures ranging from 22-42 F. Summers are mild and breezy with highs in the upper 70s and lows in the mid-50s-60s. You will want to invest in a nice warm winter coat plus all the accessories for cold winter weather.

Getting Around in Boston
If you’re in need of public transportation after your move to Boston, then you’ll probably want to take advantage of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA). MBTA operates an underground rapid transit system that runs as far north as Malden and all the way south to Braintree, and of course everywhere in between! They also have a bus line and water transit for all your transportation needs.

Getting an education in Boston
Boston is known for having some of the best colleges in the country, so if you’re planning a move to further your education you have definitely picked the right city. Some colleges in Boston include Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Boston University, Suffolk University, and Northeastern University. School-age children will join Boston Public School District with around 57,000 students. The Boston Public Schools includes 125 schools: 60 elementary schools, 21 middle schools, and 24 high schools.
