Boston is such a great city. It is vibrant and fun. There is a great balance between both the historic and contemporary aspects of the city. There are so many great places to eat, to shop, and just hang out with friends. Public transportation is safe and reasonably priced which makes it so easy to get around in the city wherever you might want to go. College students seem to make up the majority of the community's population, and the local attitude toward students is extremely supportive.
