From St. Louis to Boston: Leaving the Midwest for the Northeast 

What’s been your favorite part of living in St. Louis? The tight-knit community? What about the view from the top of the Gateway Arch? Or, maybe it’s cheering the Cardinals to victory! There’s so much to enjoy about this Midwestern city. But if the time has come to leave and head to Boston, don’t be sad. Your adventure is just beginning! 

3 Things to Know about Boston 

St. Louis and Boston have many things in common. But, there are a few things about Boston that make it stand out:

It’s a College Town 

St. Louis doesn’t disappoint when it comes to higher education. From universities to private institutions, the city is bustling with educational options. But, Boston is a college town! The greater Boston area is home to more than 50 colleges and universities and some of the nation’s most prestigious institutions. A few of these include Harvard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Boston University. Students can study law, medicine, technology, the arts, music, religion and much more. It’s no wonder why 300,000 students attend school in the Boston area.

It’s Alive with History 

You probably already know that St. Louis was the starting point for Lewis and Clark’s expedition. The city also has history dating back to its beginning in 1763. But as one of American’s oldest cities, Boston’s history runs deep. John Winthrop founded the town in 1630, and today, that history lives on. Turn any corner and see national landmarks and historical buildings. Some fascinating sites to visit are: 

  • Freedom Trail. Travel through time as you walk the Freedom Trail. You’ll encounter famous places like Paul Revere’s House, the Bunker Hill Monument and the USS Constitution.
  • Boston Common. Stroll through American’s oldest city park, dating back to 1634. 
  • Boston Harbor. You can’t live in Boston without visiting the site of the world-famous Boston Tea Party. 

It’s a Hub for Healthcare 

One of the benefits of living in St. Louis is having access to some of the country’s best hospitals and physicians. You’ll be happy to know Boston is also a leader in medical care. It’s a center for innovative medical research and surgical advances. And just like historical sites, there’s a medical center everywhere you go! Some of the best hospitals in the area are Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Boston Medical Center.
