From the Revolutionary War to the present, Boston has been a place where things are happening. The city’s well-known professional sports teams (Red Sox, Celtics, New England Patriots) have worldwide followings, and each April thousands of qualifying runners take to the streets for the famous Boston Marathon. With more than 100 colleges, Boston sees a near-constant of bright young residents moving into the area to pursue higher education, and many stay to make their homes in this vibrant city and pursue challenging or innovative careers. The depth of commercial and cultural opportunities is too vast to summarize, suffice to say that Boston offers something for everyone, as long as you do not mind a very cold winter each year. Driving and parking in the city can be challenging, so many residents choose to forgo private cars and rely on public transportation and car share options.
