Moving from Jersey City, NJ to Boston, MA
Moving from Jersey City, New Jersey to “Beantown” Boston, MA should be a pretty easy move.  Jersey City is located only a few hours south of Boston outside New York City. Boston is often referred to as the “The Cradle of Modern America,” it is also one of the oldest cities in the country and has earned the nickname of “The Hub of the Universe” from a novel by Oliver Wendell Holms.  Boston has a population of 617,594 but the Greater Boston area is home to 4.5 million! Jersey City is an awesome place to live, but there is so much to see and do after your move to Boston that you’re sure to love Boston.

What you can expect from a move from Jersey City to Boston:
If you’re driving from Jersey City to Boston in your personal vehicle, you’ll be traveling around 223 miles and spending 4.5 hours on the road. Your drive to Boston will take you through Hartford, CT so if you have a chance, stop in and visit The Firebox Restaurant. They have an amazing brunch menu with their Brioche French toast!

The weather in Boston
Boston’s climate is going to be basically the same as what you were used to in Jersey City—mild summers and cold, snowy winters. Winter temperatures range from 22-42, while summers are comfortable and breezy with highs in the upper 70s and lows in the mid 50’s-60s.

Getting Around in Boston
If you’re in need of public transportation after your move to Boston, 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.

There’s a major difference comparing the number of students in the Jersey City Public School District to the Boston Public School District. Your children will be moving from a school district with about 28,000 students to one with about 57,000 students which is a little more than twice as many, which is great for developing new friendships! The Boston Public Schools includes 125 schools: 47 K-5 schools, 25 K-8 schools, nine middle schools, and 24 high schools. The district also has several exam, special education, and alternative schools.
