1. The city’s layout makes little to no sense, making it… confusing? No! Giving it character!
Who cares if Boston’s transport system looks like a kid had at it with a couple of crayons? It’s definitely more interesting than living on a grid. And like the city itself, it’s constantly improving. Not only was Boston ranked the third best U.S. city for public transit, but with new countdown clocks and continuing expansions, the MBTA is vying for #1!
6. Bostonians know how to have a good time.
With Samuel Adams, Harpoon, and numerous other breweries in and right outside of Boston, the city’s beer game is unparalleled. There’s even a bus tour you can take to the different breweries so you don’t have to worry about where to pahhk your cahh.
7. But they also know how to get serious and come together for each other like no other place in the world.
Started out of a dorm room by two Emerson College students following the terrible tragedy of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, the Boston Strong T-shirt movement has sold over 60,000 units and raised nearly one million dollars for The One Fund Boston to aid victims of the attack.
9. Boston has the most educated (and hot) young people of any other city.
The 2010 U.S. Census showed that the Boston metro area and its 58 higher education institutions top the list of number of young people with college degrees. We might not be able to prove the “hot” part of that statistic, but it doesn’t mean it’s not true.
11. It’s the ideal place to begin a new business venture.
12. Boston has put on its very own music festival three years in a row now.
The 2014 Boston Calling will take place at City Hall Plaza on May 23, 24, & 25, and they’re pulling out all the stops this year.
13. Seriously, have you seen this year’s lineup?!?!
Jack Johnson, Tegan & Sara, and Death Cab for Cutie are just a few of the amazing acts performing at Boston Calling this year.
15. And because Red Sox, duh.
The Sox have won three of the past ten World Series and show no sign of slowing down.
