Being in Boston

by George
(Portland)

I have been lucky enough to travel to almost 70 percent of all American States. From the east coast to the west, I have experienced the rich southern laid back style and the fast paced, exciting west coast routine.

Boston has always been a personal favorite of mine. I spent my college days here and then in a funny turn of events landed back here for about five years in a job transfer.

I graduated here and my first child was born here, so it holds a special place in my heart.

No other state has ever made me feel so at home and welcomed as Boston. I have taken a walk down 'the freedom trail' many times, alone and sometimes with my wife. The amazing history of our great nation never ceases to inspire me.

The weather is a bit harsh but, for those of us who get accustomed to it, it's lovely! The winters are killingly cold, loads of snow and chilly winds. The summers are wildly humid and hot. If you live in Boston, you surely get the feel of all four seasons which is more than I could say for some other states.

Boston is loaded with tourists pouring in all the time and the best part is that you don't need a car to get around. My wife and I have walked around town on many evenings, just enjoying the atmosphere and liveliness in the air. It is known to be a tourist friendly city and traffic is not bothersome at all.

One of the reasons I have always loved Boston is because it is so chic, so utterly European. The architecture, the culinary, cafes down the road and elegant parks everywhere, all of it reminds you of Europe. The people are also much more class conscious and maintain a certain standard of living.

Even though I now live in a state far away from Boston, I always apply for jobs that would take me back to the city I love.
