Cost of living factors

The city’s population growth had led to a more competitive environment for housing and a demand for more amenities. For a quick comparison, the average home price in Boston is nearly $609,000, whereas, in Hartford, you can buy a home for around $130,000. This, along with a higher price for utilities and healthcare have led to a pricey cost of living in Boston. But, don’t fret, because while it’s expensive to live in Boston, you’ll find that the cost is worth what the city has to offer. 

Things to do in Boston

Boston offers entertainment options all year long. If you’re into sports, there are teams in all four major sports located in the region — all of whom have won championships in their respective leagues recent memory. If you need some outdoor adventures, the city has some top-notch hiking and camping spots like the Blue Hills Reservation or the Emerald Necklace, among others. For family-friendly activities, check out the Boston whale-watching cruise, the New England Aquarium, a museum or spend the day at Martha’s Vineyard. For foodies, Boston is more than just crab cakes, baked beans and clam chowder. In addition to the excellent seafood scene, Boston has several unique food options to choose from, including several local favorite spots that serve ramen, cream of wheat, maple bacon doughnuts (yum!) and bagel sandwiches! 

Job market

If you’re coming to Boston looking for work, you’re in luck! Boston has one of the largest economies in the world and its job market is vast. The city is home to a number of finance and venture capital companies and is considered a hub for biotechnology. Boston residents also work in tourism, medicine, academics, the public and civil services sector, among others.
