Are you moving to the city of Boston? Here are some tips and a bit of information about what you can expect from the local moving company, Isaac’s Moving and Storage.
- Getting Around and Transport
You may not necessarily want to take your car to Boston (or invest in a new car) if you are in close to the city. Many people are thrilled to find out that public transportation is plentiful, and you can easily get to everywhere you need to go via the city’s transit system.
- It’s A College Town
There are many leading universities and colleges, including Boston University, Harvard, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. If you are a student, then you will want to find a place close to your campus of choice. But, if want to be a bit removed from the hustle and bustle because you are raising a young family, then there are other suburbs that you could consider.
- Work and Economy
Did you know that Boston has the 6th largest economy in America and is the 12th largest economy in the world? The McKinsey Global Institute also ranked Boston as one of the most economically powerful cities in the world, which makes it a great spot to do business, network, and work.
- Home Prices
According to Wikipedia, single-family homes in Boston range from $296,000 to $2,3-million, which means you will have a wide variety to choose from. Check out Estately.com to find something that is in your price range in the Boston area.
Parking can be a bit of a battle in Boston. If you need to get into the city each day and choose not to take public transport, then it’s better to arrive early so that you can find a spot and so that you don’t have to resort to parking in an expensive inner-city garage.
- Sports and Arts
Boston is as sporty as it is artsy. The Red Sox, Celtics, Patriots and Bruins are hero worshipped teams in the city and there are many sporting events and arenas that you can support. On the arts front, be sure to check out the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) and the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA).
- Massachusetts Attractions
There are a number of great attractions in and around Boston that you and your family can explore, such as the Freedom Trail, Faneuil Hall, the aquarium, or Harvard University. For a short trip outside the city visit Lexington and Concord, Martha’s Vineyard, or Plymouth Plantation, among many other fun and exciting sites.
- Parks and Recreation
If you love the outdoors, then Boston is the perfect city for you. Whether you’re interested in a hike, checking out the local fauna and flora, or packing your picnic basket for a relaxing day in the park, there will be many options to choose from. The park space in Boston is so vast that one of the park stretches is called “The Emerald Necklace”. Some of the popular parks include the Public Garden, Boston Common, and the Arnold Arboretum.
