Moving from Tampa, FL to Boston, MA

So you’re thinking about moving from Tampa, FL to Boston, MA?

Tampa, Florida, is the kind of place you think you want to retire. It is definitely a place with many advantages, least of all the prevalent sunshine and central location within the state. Boston, Massachusetts, is one of the most historic cities in the United States, if not the most historic. From the Boston Tea Party to television series like Boston Legal, the city has been in the public consciousness since before the American Revolution. It also happens to be one of the best places to call home in the nation. This article will show some of the many reasons why you might consider a move from Tampa to Boston.

What is the weather like in Boston?

Boston has a warm summer. But its warmth is much milder than that of Tampa. Whereas a 90 degree day is typical for Tampa, Boston rarely tips above 81 degrees. In addition, the humidity is nearly 10 percent less than that of Tampa’s throughout the year. For those who will miss winter living in Florida, Boston enjoys a beautiful winter season. This time of year enjoys over 43 inches of snow. Thankfully, though, there is no month of the year that averages below freezing highs. Boston, in general, gives its residents four distinct citizens. It is certainly a climate that gives you both more relief and variety than Tampa’s.

What are the demographics like in Boston?

Boston benefits from being one of the oldest and most well-known cities in the nation in the realm of diversity. While there are representations from many different races and minority groups in Tampa, there is perhaps even more variety found in the over 600,000 people living in Boston.

50 percent of the city identifies as Caucasian, but there are also large percentages of African Americans (about 25 percent) and Hispanics (more than 17 percent) in the city. Ten percent of the town is Asian, as well. Of the part of the population that identifies as white, the most common heritage is Irish. This has constituted Boston often being thought of in popular culture as an Irish community. Jewish people, too, have a large foothold in the city, with nearly 25,000 people in the Boston city limits.

Are the schools in Boston good?

As one of the most famous towns in the nation, Boston also has one of the most reputable education systems. There are about 57,000 students within the Boston Public School. Many of the most prestigious schools are found in the city, including the Boston Latin Academy and the John D. O’Bryant School of Math & Science. The second-oldest public high school in the nation, meanwhile, is the city’s own Boston Latin School.

There are many incredible higher academia options found in the Boston area, too. Among them are so the oldest and best schools in the nation. For instance, there is Boston University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Harvard University and Brandles University. There is no city that can quite match a Boston education.

How is the sports scene in Boston?

No matter what you are interested in, you can bet you can find something that relates in Boston. It is one of the liveliest cities to live in the U.S.A. The city loves its sports teams, and many citizens count attending games to be amongst their favorite pastimes.

The Boston Red Sox are probably the town’s most famous teams, who have played Major League Baseball since 1901. They have captured eight World Series titles in their history. For hockey, there’s the professional Boston Bruins, who have won six Stanley Cups since their inception in 1924. The Boston Celtics are one of the most honored NBA basketball teams with 17 championships to their credit. Meanwhile, football fans will want to support the four-time Super Bowl-winners the New England Patriots. New England is also the first name for the MLS soccer team the Revolution, which have had one U.S. Open Cup since they were established in 1995.

The many colleges and universities in the greater area also provide many great teams to follow. The Boston University Terriers, for instance, have 21 teams playing in the NCAA Division 1 Patriot League.
