Getting to know Boston

Here’s some quick information to help you get familiar with your new home: 


While you may be leaving behind the gorgeous Orlando weather, you’ll fall in love with the seasonal changes in Boston! In fact, lots of tourists flock to Boston in the fall to see the colors of the changing leaves and to tour the New England foliage. Summers are warm and humid, while winters are cold and snowy. Falls are beautiful and cool. Most summer days reach at least 70 degrees and summer nights see lows in the 60s. The city does see 90 degree temps at least 10 days each summer, but it rarely gets into triple digits. Coming from Orlando, you’re no stranger to rain, but prepare for snow. In Boston, the city sees nearly 50 inches of rain and snow a year. 


If you loved the arts and cultural scene in Orlando, you’ll really love what Boston has to offer. From sports and music, to food and the performance and visual arts, Boston is a city with diverse culture. 


Boston has a rich musical history and its music scene is still thriving today. Artists like James Taylor, The Cars, Pixies, New Kids on the Block, Aerosmith, Boston, and even Star Wars composer John Williams consider the city home. And pretty much any night of the week, you can venture out into the city to catch a rock and roll, jazz, pop, country, folk or country music show in a local club or venue. 

The arts

If the arts are your thing, be sure to check out the Washington Street Theatre District, which features a number of theatres like the Boston Opera House and the Citi Performing Arts Center. There, you’ll find regular performances from professional ballet and theatre companies, as well as the occasional free open-air performances. The city is also home to the National Center of Afro-American Artists, the Museum of Fine Arts and other notable art museums. 


The food in Boston is also top notch. While the cuisine primarily centers on seafood and dairy products, the city has a varied food scene, with cuisines from various ethnicities. Residents also enjoy the Haymarket (an open-air fresh market) and the number of local seafood and farmers markets.


Are you missing your Orlando Magic? You’ll have plenty of chances to see them play in Boston against the Celtics, as the two teams are NBA Eastern Conference rivals and play each other frequently each season. Sports are another major factor in the culture of the city, as it also home to several other professional sports teams. Major League Baseball’s Red Sox, the NHL’s Bruins, the NFL’s Patriots and the MLS’s Revolution all call the Boston area home. 

Job opportunities

If you’re moving to Boston for work, you’ll find that the area has an abundance of job opportunities. Boston is considered one of the top cities in the country in which to do business. Major industries include finance, medicine, commercial fishing, food processing, education, tourism and research.
