Where In New England Should You Actually Live?

You got: Boston

The big city calls, and only Boston can satisfy your needs. A hub for art, music, sports, and more, Boston is the perfect place for you to indulge in your love of culture as the intellectual you are.

You got: Providence, R.I.

Once ignored and maligned, Providence is a city undergoing a rennaissance. Not nearly as big as Boston, Providence still provides many big-city amenities, like renowned restaurants and performing arts, but at a more easily graspable scale. Providence strikes the balance between urban-chic and alterna-hip, and it's totally perfect for you.
